Message from Principal Dr. Sonya Harrison
The focus of all staff at Lea School is to provide a high quality education for our students. Our educators are dedicated to provide an environment where children feel motivated to learn and reach their full potential. We believe that every child has the ability to achieve excellence.
The same approach used for our general population is applied to our Special Education and English as Second Language Learners programs. We feel whatever barriers a child has, none are insurmountable and all deserve the opportunities that a great education affords.
The 21st century is a dynamic time and Lea is dedicated to providing a dynamic education for all our students.
The Arts at Lea

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.
