U School REPPIN At University of Pennsylvania's Ethnography Forum

Our 9th and 10th grade students ( Soloman G. (2 sessions), David A. (2 sessions) - Shaniya A, Brian M, Emaih F, My L, Barbara C, Jamira R) did an awesome job as presenters and ambassadors for U School in front of a national audience at the Ethnography Forum this weekend. Students shared their stories, ethnographic research, media making, and made an overall great impression of our learning model and values. Way to go!


Our Core Value for the month of February is Creativity - the use of the imagination or original ideas.


All students will get a new start ( second first day of the school year) with newly formed classes. Students will have plenty opportunities to demonstrate creativity in your new classes.
