Welcome to Lea from Principal Jennifer Duffy
We Welcome You to the Lea FAMI-Lea
As an introduction please view our welcome video posted on the link below. We hope this tells you how special we think our FAMI-Lea members are and hope you will join us if you have not already.
Literacy is the Focus
Parents - It is important to stress literacy at home and prepare your child for the educational rigor that the classroom teacher will be providing in that setting. We request your support in pushing your student beyond the levels they think are their limits. Please see our Curriculum page for more information.
Please check our About Us page for documents you can download and print in preparation to enroll your child.
Note: The Registration Requirements page will list the documents you need to bring to the school with you. You can also click on the School Finder link to determine which school catchment you live in.
Lea has developed a School Yard Greening Master Plan with the support and consultation of West Philly Coalition for Neighborhood Schools, and the program was facilitated by the Community Design Collaborative. The school participated in a full day Design Charrette which included Students, Teachers, Parents, Administration, and the Community, to come up with a design which will support functions at the school and present a place for the community to enjoy when school is not in session.

WPCNS, Community, Students and Parents thank you for your support!
