Great News: Two Philly high schools to plan for turnaround

Yesterday we announced four investments in public and private schools, including our first investments to help transform a neighborhood district high school – Roxborough High – and a Catholic High School, Neumann-Goretti in South Philadelphia.  
 
Read about the investments in today’s Inquirer.
 
These investments underscore the fact that Philadelphia has great schools of all types, but they share a common thread: outstanding teachers and visionary leaders who believe all students can achieve at high levels.
 
To date, the Great Schools Fund has invested $35.8 million in Philadelphia schools to give nearly 16,000 students the opportunity to receive a great education. This year, we expect to invest millions more in schools of all types. As always, please contact us to get involved.
