Thanks to a groundswell of support from The West Philadelphia Coalition for Neighborhood Schools WPCNS, the Lea Elementary project has raised the most funds of any Recyclebank Green Schools in the country!
Save yourself from the thoughts of uprooting your family and moving to the suburbs, putting yourself on tons of charter school wait lists, and filling out the financial aid forms every year. Check out your public school!
Yes, it’s once again time again for the Voluntary Transfer Program (VTP)! For Philadelphia residents, VTP allows families to apply for seats in public schools outside of their designated catchment.
With so many people vying for spots in the same trendy public and charter schools, it is worth considering some schools that might not be on your radar.
I wanted my child to experience other cultures, and to be part of the good things that happen when a school is supported by parents. I saw that Lea had the foundation of great teachers, so I decided to dedicate time to improve other areas.
