Philly's Future Starts at School
All schools are designed as vivid and inspiring learning environments where students discover and reach their fullest potential.
The future of 215 is bright
As Philadelphia emerges from the pandemic, and aims for a third decade of population growth and economic expansion, we believe we have both a moral imperative and a unique opportunity to improve schools. Out of this difficult time, there are pockets of educational opportunity emerging, and if we develop a thoughtful, ambitious, and research-based plan, we believe we can make a real impact for our children.
In order to do this, civic, business, education and community leaders must come together to focus on the bright spots in our education system, and determine a city-wide vision and plan of action that learns from those bright spots to create system-wide improvements. Together, we can build a better future for Philadelphia, but it starts at schools.
Elevate 215 is a catalyst for preparing students for the world of tomorrow by modernizing the learning experience in Philadelphia schools today. We do this by: investing in schools and talent, collaborating with our partners, expanding access and resources for families, and advocating to create the conditions for success.
