Dear Parents and Guardians:


With our summer break quickly approaching it is very important our students continue to read each and every day.  Please take your children to the library. If they are young please read to them as often as possible. Also, please review their math skills nightly. This will help them retain their skills which they worked so hard this year to achieve.


The last day of school for students is Thursday, June 18, 2015.

Congratulations to Hau Phan of 205.  Hau finished 8th in the Philadelphia Sumdog Contest individual score.  This is a mathematics competition open to all students in the Philadelphia School District.  Also, room 205 finished 5th in the contest.  We take pride in all of our students who participated in the contest.  Again congratulations.


During May the students of Juniata Park created the Museum of Knowledge. All classes selected topics of interest to explore. The students' displays were enjoyed by the Juniata Park Academy community.

Message from the Principal

Welcome to the Juniata Park Academy Website. We are excited about having the opportunity to showcase all the exciting projects that are taking place at our school. Our school is the shining star of Hunting Park Avenue! We have a diverse population of students who are eager to become productive citizens in a global world. Our staff and students have the most up to date technology at their fingertips. Classrooms are equipped with computers and Promethean boards (interactive white boards). We have so much to offer our community.


At Juniata Park Academy our staff realizes the importance of teaching the whole child. Today, more than ever young people need caring adults to help guide them through life's challenges. These caring adults are called mentors. They are parents, teachers, coaches, tutors, pastors and neighbors. They are the people who always take the time to listen, guide, support and help our young people. Who mentored you? I urge you to thank them and pass it on! Why not become a mentor? Our school is always seeking volunteers! I invite you to come and visit and lend us a helping hand.
