Fall Guide 2011 Vol. 19. No. 1 Focus on Looking Ahead to High School

Theme articles

School profiles

By Anonymous on Sep 8, 2011 03:59 PM

Here you can find a list of all of the public high schools in Philadelphia. NOTE: These profiles still list information about the schools from 2010. We are working to update them with information from the 2011 Fall Guide.

Types of high schools

Special admission high schools These high schools have specific admissions requirements in the areas of test scores, grades earned in core subjects, and attendance and behavior records. Two other schools have special admissions programs within them. Students across the city may apply.

Citywide admission high schools Students citywide are eligible to apply to these high schools, and those who meet the criteria are entered into a lottery. Each school has different admissions criteria, but most require that students have passing grades in all major subjects and maintain a good attendance, behavior, and punctuality record.

Neighborhood high schools These schools have geographic boundaries; students are guaranteed admission if their school for grade 8 falls within the feeder pattern. Those living outside of the feeder pattern may also apply, but admission is based on available space and determined through a lottery. Some of these are now run by charter school operators as Renaissance Schools. Others are Promise Academies getting extra supports from the School District.

Charter high schools There are 30 charters serving the high school grades, not counting the Renaissance charter schools. Charters are not District-operated – each functions as an independent district. Any Philadelphia student may apply to these 30 charter schools, and schools are required to choose students by lottery if there are more applicants than slots. They are not allowed to exclude applicants based on grades or test scores or other aspects of their record. But each school has its own procedures and deadlines, as well as different interview, orientation, and paperwork requirements for students and parents before enrollment is guaranteed.

Key to the school profiles

This is a directory of District and charter high schools. The contact information and demographic data for District schools are from the School District of Philadelphia. Charter school data are compiled from the District and from charter school annual reports filed with the state. Sports information is from the PIAA and school surveys.

All schools were asked to complete a survey. Information in the following profile sections is self-reported by the schools:

  • “New this year,”

  • “AP courses,”

  • “Points of pride,”

  • “Career and Technical Education programs,”

  • “Other special academic offerings,”

  • “Foreign languages,” and

  • “Activities.”

Survey responses are edited for length and some claims may be removed if they cannot be independently verified.

Abbreviations used throughout the listings:

  • NR = No response by the school

  • NA = Not applicable/available

  • AP = Advanced placement

  • AYP = Adequate Yearly Progress

  • CTE = Career and Technical Education

  • IB = International Baccalaureate

  • DOL = Department of Labor (U.S.)

  • PIAA = Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association

  • * = These sports are not authorized for PIAA competition

  • † = These CTE programs are state-approved.
