We love this space and we think you will too. It has been a school for many years, and is ready to go as a learning space– complete with cubbies and chalkboards. It has plenty of space in several large classrooms, plus an office near the front door, and a lovely wall of windows for fresh air and sunshine that runs the whole length of the building. The location is fantastic– in South Philly, not far from Center City, amidst a neighborhood full of newly renovated properties. There are three different park/ playgrounds within three blocks of the school– one a grassy sitting garden, one with a huge soccer/frisbee/football field, and two with swings, slides, basketball, and baseball facilities. And every weekend we can rollerskate on the first floor of our building!
Stay tuned for invitations to a series of open houses and other events in the new space. And for those of you who have offered to volunteer, we could use a hand in the first weeks of July moving in. Please email us to let us know if you can help!
See you soon at the Philly Free School!
