I am a new parent to mastery Charter. My son is in the 9th grade and I am trying to obtain the email addresses of my son's teachers. Is that something that could be forwarded to me?

Thank you,

Kim Brooks

I doubt that anyone here would have it. Have you tried Mastery Charter? They would more than likely have it before anyone else.

mastery charter is lenfest campus is the best school in the united states . All the students there wil pass and be something in life. The teachers there might be a little strick on the kids , but they're nice nd helpful . And ms.hinton is one of the best teachers there and i would really recomend her for being the school 8th grade dean cause my child comes home saying "i really love ms.hinton cause shes always helping me".

My daughter will be entering 10th grade in the fall of 2010. I just wanted to touch base with a parent who had a child in 10th grade Lenfest campus. How was the experience? We are new to charter schools and just wanted to get some thoughts from parents.

Dear Principal,

I am so sorry that a student from this campus was involved in the inappropriate incident in Center City. I am glad that you are taking action to expel these students, because they do not represent the hard work of the staff and the efforts of the other students. I hope that the media will not blame you or your administration for this mishap.

I am a new parent as well to Mastery Charter, however to respond to a recent question regarding email. When the children brought home their homework assignments the teachers email addresses were located on the sheet as well as what was expected from that particular class.

I have been searching for a High School for my daughter who is has attended Catholic School since Kindergarten. Can I please get some more parent responses from the 9th grade students....Do you think the curriculum is up to standards? Do you feel your child is safe? What is the student/teacher ratio? thanks for your help. Cathy
