Transforming a neighborhood high school

Yesterday we were pleased to announce a $1.1 million grant to Roxborough High School to support an academic turnaround. The school, led by Principal Dana Jenkins, will be implementing a plan to improve academic performance by better aligning their robust career and technical education (CTE) program with their general education classes. You can read more about it in the Inquirer.

Improving postsecondary outcomes at neighborhood high schools is one of Philadelphia’s toughest challenges. We believe that Roxborough, with their inspiring leadership team, dedicated teachers and strong community partnerships, is on the path to success.

We are proud to support this and other school improvement efforts across the city to help ensure that every child in every neighborhood receives a great education. Please contact us if you want to get involved.
