Opening in Sept, 2011, The Philadelphia Free School will be the only Sudbury model, democratic free school in the Delaware Valley. Serving children ages 4-19, it will create a space that rejects grades, bells and conformity, and centers instead, on curiosity, trust, and self reliance. Students will direct their own learning based upon their interests and passions and curiosities. The school’s driving principles will be meaningful learning, citizen-building, and re-envisioning urban youth.
The Philadelphia Free School will host an information session and discussion about the school on Monday Feb 21 from 1-3 pm at Weccacoe Rec Center. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Michelle Loucas, Co-Founder.
