The Penn Partnership
In June 1998, the University of Pennsylvania, School District of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Federation of Teachers announced an unprecedented commitment to public education: the creation of an exemplary PreK-8 neighborhood public school. The Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander University of Pennsylvania Partnership School was developed with the participation of parents, teachers, university faculty, community members, and neighborhood groups. The school was named for Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander, a distinguished graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. To read more about her, please visit the biography page.
Located on a five-acre campus site, this unique public school has already been hailed as a “gold standard” by the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities for bringing the most effective, research-proven educational practices into the classroom.
Penn’s partnership with PAS is a campus-wide endeavor. The University subsidizes the school with an operating contribution of $1330 per student—an amount that helps to keep the student-teacher ratio low (18:1 for kindergarten and 24:1 for grades 1-8).
