TPS is a progressive independent day school that educates children for a future that is impossible to know but not impossible to shape.
We encourage children to explore and push the boundaries of possibility to fulfill their intellectual, social, and civic potential. We approach learning through inquiry, projects, and community.
As a preschool–8th grade school, we address specifically how children develop intellectually, creatively, emotionally, socially, and physically. Through our commitment to diversity and social justice, we seek to nurture each student’s moral compass and sense of personal integrity.
Located at 25th and Lombard, TPS balances the resources of its Center City location with opportunities to spend a full day in nature each week at one of the many outdoor classrooms within Philadelphia. Learning in the city and country affirms our founders’ goal of educating children to become responsible and active stewards of the world around them.
Environmental education has been integral to TPS since its founding in 1972. Kindergarten - eighth grade classes spend a day each week in the fall and spring at one of the many outdoor classrooms located within city limits such as the Wissahickon Creek, Awbury Arboretum, and Bartram's Garden.
