Dr. Ethel Allen, Heston, John Marshall, EW Rhodes and Steel Schools! Please reach out to them for further details.


We are the Acceleration Network of the School District of Philadelphia. The Acceleration Network is a community of schools focused on improving student achievement through a highly-structured approach grounded in research.  Our vision is “We will dramatically improve our lowest-performing schools by investing in principals, teaching and learning, professional growth, climate and culture.”

Be part of our school’s transformations and support SDP’s work of creating a system of equitable schools.
