All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps.

As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

Location and accessibility seem a great factor in providing children with cooperative education.

The environment at Philadelphia is one of community: community responsibility, community encouragement, community pride. Learning is at center stage. A clear sense of respect greets you at the door. My daughter transferred from another middle school and is at last challenged to grow in her many strengths and talents.

This school is one of the best!!! Mr. Waller and Mr. Gentry are wonderful principals. The teachers are wonderful too. One of them that really stands out is Mrs. Becky Davis.

Philadelphia Elementary is a second home to it's students. Children there are nurtured in an environment of respect,kindness,love, and learning.They experience not only academic education but are taught by example of the educators there the true value of treating others with care and respect. Students are given amble opportunity to express themselves and be an important asset in school functions. Being a K-8 school, children spend nine of their most formative years there.It is truly a wonderful home away from home. I have three children and a grandchild currently at Philadelphia and have continuously had children there since 1983. The Principal and Vice- Principal are held in the highest regard by parents and students alike.The teachers are dedicated to their students.The entire staff, encompassing aide's to custodians,are beneficial to the children's perception of self-worth. The only fault of this great institute of learning is that it is not K-12th.

This a great school all around! My child will be in the first grade this year and I am so please with the methods the teachers have used to help her learn. If she has a problem with something the teachers are quick to bring it to my attention instead of letting it drag on and my child fall behind. They are wonderful! Even the lunch ladies are sweet. I have no worries sending my child to school each day. Even with all the badness in the world today I know she is around morally sound people. Mr.Waller and Mr. Gentry have done a superb jod & hats off to the teachers for jobs well done.

This is my son's first year at Philadelphia. He has enjoyed everything he has participated in. Mr. Waller is concerned with what happens to my child in relation to academics and extracurricular activities. Mr. Waller is a good people person. This skill is needed when dealing with the public. He is great and so is the school. Thanks for all you've done with my child.

I love this school for my daughter. She loves it as well. She is in first grade this year. The teachers are wonderful and the music program is outstanding. I wish that they went thru high school instead of stopping at 8th grade. But I highly recommend this school to anyone with children in pre-k thru 8th grade. They even have before and after school day care. It's great.

This school is great! Mr. Waller & Mr. Gentry do a great job keeping the kids on good behavior and selecting great teachers. The Staff at Philadelphia are concerned about the kids education and I wouldn't go anywhere else. The only thing bad is that it doesn't have High School.
