Message from the Principal

Stephen Girard is located at 18th and Snyder Ave. in the heart of South Philadelphia. We take pride in our school and in our children. We believe every child can and will succeed.

Girard School is committed to continue development of an educational environment in which all learners succeed.  Reflecting on our own collective knowledge and the research on the best instructional practices, we envision that the educational environment will be cooperative, interactive, rigorous in standards and responsive to the diverse needs of learners.

"You give us a child who is ready to learn, and we'll give you a shining star in return."
