Known as a trusted Facebook Group in our area, local families are always ready to share their expertise in the Philly Family Community. That’s why when we asked “Who are the top Elementary and Lower Schools in our area?” they helped us get started (but we still need YOUR HELP)!
First, we’re pleased to introduce you to our Philadelphia Family Education Partner Members, who support our Community and Education Guide. Have you had a great experience with any of them? You can help other families benefit from your experience with an endorsement on their Profile Page!

“The community. Principal Mason, the faculty, staff, Friends of Mifflin organization, and Mifflin students and families make Mifflin a genuine, thriving, inclusive, dynamic, diverse, and holistic-learning community. Our daughter has been at Mifflin since Kindergarten and she is now in second grade. All of her teachers have been creative, honest, engaging, and inspiring, even throughout a pandemic. Our kiddo loves knowing so many kids and teachers at the school and Principal Mason and teacher Michelle Shaw-Carpenter are beacons for the students grades PK-8. The Friends of Mifflin and parent-teacher organization are also such supportive entities for the students and teachers, even raising funds and rallying with the district for a new playground to be installed at the school, a many, many year commitment and accomplishment. We feel quite fortunate to be a part of such an awesome community.” – Jill H.
