i have to say that alot of this stuff i see on this website is bogus..I have three children who also attends this school. when my kindergarten students attending my daughter didn't know how to spell her own name.my children knows everything from math to knowing how to read.When i heard about the school closing I started doing my research for finding a new school..I went to our public school around are neighborhood (which is a top rating public school) and I explained to them the situation and the kind of work that my kindergarten students do and they told me theres no way in history my children will be getting that kind of work in kindergarten..i think the academic level is based on bias subjects that has nothing to do with student teacher relationships..overall this school works good for my children and I.And if you have a child that goes to the school in the n.e i saw the way your children act an d its ridiculous,they make their parents look really bad..

This is the worst school in creation. Those who applaud or recommend this school must work there. The low test scores speak volumes. There are many acts of violence and disrespect. The children follow the lead of the staff. The administrators are nasty and rude. There only concern is packing our kids in to receive the funding per child, however, they do not have adequate books. I'm waiting to hear that their charter is revoked. This school is a disgrace.

This school simply sees the dollar sign behind each child. It takes each and every child in and when a child displays behavior that they should be expelled for-they aren't asked to leave because that would mean the school wouldn't get paid for that kid anymore. Teachers are told kids can't be asked to leave because it is a legal issue and that it's their fault they cant handle the students. This school is known for students who are avoiding placement in disciplinary schools by the district, don't wanna go to the disciplinary school-just head to leadership. Many of the teachers aren't even qualified- just look them up on the state website no teaching certificate or an expired one. It's sad that this school thinks this little of themselves, at one time they had it together-now its all about money and that money sure isn't going to education.

All of my children goes to wdpllpcs ranging from pre-k to high school. This has been one of the best schools far yet that I have experienced. My oldest son was attending a Philadelphia public school that took no interest in the children let alone the kids education. Here at wdpllpcs I never had this problem because not only the teachers but all the staff shows great interest in the kids well being let alone the most important the kids education. I part about being a little unorganized is out weighed by the fact of having greater education. I would recommend wdpllpcs without hesitation despite the little flaws that would potently be a greater problem in any other school.

I have gone here for 8 years and this school is amess they dont have enough supplies for each grade last year my whole grade had to share 30 textbooks for math,literture,and scince. There were only 7 to 10 social studies textbooks for my grade . Also my classroom was falling apart light fixtures falling , ceiling fans caming loose someone almost got hit in the head with a light fixture. The teachers let kids disrespect them they cant controll the students. They dont even try to teach us. Then when we get a good teacher the school just fires them you should not send your kids to the middle or high school . However the elementary is so much better they are the only good thing about leadership

Walter D. Palmer Leadredship (high school) is the worse Charter School ever. They are unorganized and very chaotic. The staff is rude! You are told the problems will be handled but never is.They do not do parent advocacy or intervention.Parents are not allowed to meet or talk with one another to resolve any issues. My child has a learning disability and needed extra help, some of the staff would help my child, but was then told they could no longer help my child with their education, however the teachers now have to make sure it is safe for other children to go home in their safe corridor...What happened to school police or the City's police patrolling the area even more often. Now, the school is going to get government money for a child with an IEP but however has not recieved or met the goals they are suppose to meet each year. The children have to share textbooks, homework is not given that often, the school always want money for something, notices are given at the very last minute, if they are given. At Parent Nights, there is no control of the crowds, you can not hear...it's a mess...keep looking for another school.

I have been a parent of Walter D Palmer LLPCS for the last 11 years and this school has really went down hill.. At one point in time I had all of my children enrolled here , and one by one I started to withdraw them , because the school does not stand by their 0 tolerance policy, and they have a very high turn over with their staff... They try to have leadership night for each grade level , but there is no crowd control and the patents are very rude... You can barely hear or see your kids perform... And every time you turn around they are asking for money or buying supplies ... I will definitely be taking my kids out of this school and putting them somewhere where the staff can control the kids and my kids can get the decent education that they are entitled to

I am a parent of a 4th grader that has attended this school since the first prekindergarten. Last year my 12th grader was part of the first graduating class. This is a great school that cares first about your children. The principals know your child and work with the parents to make sure your child gets the best education possible. The teachers are great too. Leadership wants all parents to get involved and holds monthly meetings so that parents are a part of the school. I feel good that my child is safe and cared for and receiving a high quality education in a great environment. I have many other family members and friends that have chidren in this school and we think it is the best. If you want the best for your chidl, come to Leadership because they really care about education and families.

i go to this school but i am in the process of transferring to palumbo, the students here dont care about their education and a very mean, besides the students the teachers are great and want the best from us


Posted August 19, 2011

The high school is not ready to be a school, We dont even have any textbooks or supplys to do actvities in school with. They also ask us for money at our concerts each month. Dont know grades or credits . teachers are smart but have no say in anything. Its a waste of my time. Teacher leave every year . I would leave to thou


Posted May 18, 2011

This school is absoluetley terrible! I have two kids one in the elementary school and one in the middle school and although the elementary shcool is better they are both all about money. I find that the teachers at the middle school have no concern with the children. I have visited this building several times and found the children just roaming as they please everywhere. My son has just basically wasted an entire year of his learning here and needless to say they will not be returning for the next school year. The main concern at this school is if everyone is in school uniform! WOW!!

Excellent teachers that believe in the children. Parent are made welcome and included in programs. The administration makes the school safe and child friendly and ensure an academic program that provides opportunities for all students to learn. This is one of the best charter schools in Philadelphia, with programs for children from Pre-K through High School. I would recommend this school to any parent that want a high quality education and safe environment for their child.

I have a child that attends this school and am highly pleased with the caring and passion of the teachers and administration. The staff sincerely care about the welfare of the students and parents are welcomed and supported. It is really a traditional community environment that includes parents in decisions concerning their child's education. I have watched this school grow for over 5 years and recommend it to my friends and family.

My daughter is a new student at the school and I really thought that I would like it there but to my surprise it's really not all that it's hyped up to be. I may as well have kept her where she WAS going! The teachers are not as concerned as I feel they should be about our children's education. My child's behavior is worst than it was at the other school! I think the staff should concentrate on more important issues. it's really so discouraging because I really hoped she would be challenged more here but I guess I was misinformed. I don't think I'll be keeping her here for another school year therefore my search for a better education for her continues.That's not good! I hope someone from the school reads these reviews and maybe things will get better!

I have a son in pre-K and I am pleased with the quality curriculum used by his teachers. They have an array of interactives centers. My 4 year old has learned to recognize his letters and some vocabulary including his name. He is also being prepared for Handwriting and foundations for Math. His teachers keep in constant communication with parents and they go out on field trips alomost every month.

The different student groups are identified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
