John Bartram High School

Message from the Principal

Welcome parents and friends to a new school year! 


Bartram High School, home to nearly 600 scholars, is a school with a new vision and mission.  Led by dedicated students, teachers, parents, and community partners, Bartram High School will be incorporating project based thematic approaches to teaching and learning. Along with following the Pennsylvania Common Core Standards and The School District of Philadelphia's High School Curriculum, we will infuse themes directed at developing our students and families' cultural awareness, social consciousness, and teach them how to plan for their futures.  


We are partnering with several companies that provide professional development, coaching, resources and services to improve curriculum design, instruction, school culture, leadership, and assessment practices. We will teach students how to learn through a focus on academic achievement, critical thinking and social responsibility, while preparing them for both college and careers.   


The school's learning experience shall include a focus on reading and writing through literature, a rigorous math program and common math assessment, research and thinking skills, documentation of students' work, regular fieldwork that takes place outside the classroom, consistent engagement and collaboration amongst the entire Bartram High School Community, and restorative practices that will teach our scholars how to be productive citizens throughout the world. 


As a proud Bartram Alum, Class of 1983, I will work tirelessly, while partnering with all parents and community stakeholders, to ensure that every child graduates and is globally prepared, to achieve their goals after they leave Bartram. I will be hosting a monthly meeting, workshop, or social event to engage our entire school community, for the purpose of establishing Bartram as the Hub of Knowledge, Wisdom, and Understanding for all of Southwest Philadelphia! 


Thank you for sending us your scholar(s). I look forward to working together. Please visit our website often for details about the school, various updates, and other pertinent information that will enable "OUR CHILDREN" to be successful this school year and beyond.
