Philadelphia Family Education Guide: Stories

As COVID changed the world, PA Cyber never stopped learning.

Margaret Metz, Friends’ Central School’s Director of Enrollment Management, shares her insights for an ever-changing educational landscape.

Within a framework of evidence-based teaching methodologies, The Philadelphia School applies a distinct progressive educational approach that is renowned throughout the region and has established the school’s reputation as a center for joyful, life-long learning.

Silver linings help remind us of our community’s resilience and this opportunity for growth during a school year that is unlike anything we have ever experienced.

“We want to help students feel good about finding their own voice, and to feel supported in sharing their truth.”

How can you design home spaces in a way that allows your child to be independent? Greene Towne Montessori School shares their tips!
