Onward and Outward 2021

Penn Alexander is pleased to present Onward & Outward 2021.  Charting the next course for our school community and building on the accomplishments recognized by the 2016 US Department of Education National Blue Ribbon award for exemplary accomplishment in closing in the achievement gap, Onward & Outward 2021 outlines a shared vision for the next three years of impact and sets key three-year planning goals and initiatives for Penn Alexander.

We will be guided in our work by a deep commitment to our Vision:

By providing an equitable and purposeful learning experience that pushes us to build a just community, we ensure that all students are prepared for a vibrant future, responsible to each other, our city, and our world.

Our school serves as a learning hub of professional practice for Philadelphia educators seeking to maximize their own and their students’ growth, and a space for our school community to come together to grow and learn.

These Five Pathways will drive us forward:
