The School District of Philadelphia is the eighth largest school district in the nation. We are a community of 19,000 caring employees working together with parents, families, volunteers and community members to serve over 203,000 students, who come from diverse socio-economic backgrounds and speak 166 languages.
Our mission is to deliver on the civil right of every child in Philadelphia to an excellent public school education and ensure all children graduate from high school ready to succeed, fully engaged as a citizen of our world.
The School District's commitment to the success of all students is reflected in its four anchor goals:
1) 100% of students will graduate ready for college or career
2) 100% of 8 year-olds will read on or above grade level
3) 100% of positions are filled by great principals, teachers, and employees
4) 100% of funding for our schools is secured with zero deficit
