About this school

Our students do extremely well in standardized tests & outperform state averages. 4th grade students consistently score in the top 1% in Science. We have an exceptional team of dedicated teachers & very supportive parents! After close to doubling our student enrollment for 2012-2013 we moved, temporarily, into two stately schools in historic Manayunk. In 2013 we will move into our brand new 60,000 square foot school with a multi-acre outdoor learning laboratory.
