My time at Gratz has been nothing more but an adventure. As an alumni, I can finally say that my high school has prepared me for college. Since I have walked through those bright red doors back in 2013 my life was changed forever. Rather if it was due to friends, academics, or even the staff (who eventually become family).
I know some of the current students will possibly disagree but every staff member shows up to work because they are care about the children. The bond between teacher and student is crucial and I know without this loving Gratz family, my high school experience would be totally different.
Philadelphia is one of the biggest cities in the United States, which means it has a lot of other high school to compare it too but I would recommend Simon Gratz Mastery Charter to all the coming 8th grader as well as transfers.
I do genuinely love my high school.

What i love about my school is that the teachers are very involved with the students and when your child becomes a senior, our senior seminar teachers make it their first priority to get your child into the college of their choice. My school makes it their priority to provide us with the best learning and safety everyday. The school grading system is very strict and it pushes you to become better at your work and help you become stronger with your work.
The teachers really care about your well being not just academically, but socially, mentally, physically, emotionally and of course academically. Just because it is in a bad neighborhood does not make it a bad school, in fact I think that's what makes it a better school.
