This is such a great school. The curriculm is based on the national average and not just public schools. The Administrative Team members are extremely supportive of the families. They provide great resources and an awesome platform for parents to become more involved with the school. If CPS was not an option for my children, I would home school.

It believes in the ability of every child to succeed and is providing a world class education to each of its students. By instilling this belief and providing the students with the tools they need, CPS is changing lives and devolping tomorrows leaders.

Community Partnership School is a private independent school in North Central Philadelphia which provides urban students with the same excellent curriculum and teacher expectations that are afforded other independent school students. CPS students are enthusiastic about learning and eager to succeed. CPS quashes the myth that urban children can't learn.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
