Philadelphia City School District Reviews
I loved the Challange whil I was in school the different activities we engaged in daily! In a perfect world I would have succeeded, unfortunately I developed a brain tumor had surgery and my high school dreams of college and dream career went down hill! I just wished the support could have been stronger from my teachers and administrators while I was experiencing my adverse situations! I experienced unstable housing, and could not always complete my homework. I still graduated yet somewhat behind all of my class mates! I think School District of Philadelphia need to better support students outside of the academic community and also in the social life.
The Philadelphia School District focuses mainly on the school who are already excelling instead of improving schools that are underrepresented. Instead of trying to put all your resources on schools that perform well how about you help the majority so that the School district as a whole can be greater. Constantly feeding resources and opportunities in lesser schools only create a divide opposed to a community where we help each other. All we do is help ourselves but not our community, and when we do it’s because of personal gain. Overall we can excel and do better but it’s up to us to create a better culture here in Philadelphia.
Philadelphia City School District supports a platform for thousands of students to study and grow. There are sufficient teachers who dedicate themselves to nurture their kids. We have free lunch and advanced equipment to contribute our learning process, we visualize better, understand deeper, and grow up faster. But there still remain some problems that we need to work on together. It would be great if the quality of the lunch is better, so that students would be willing to eat school lunch instead of purchsing snacks from school stores.
