Supporting the design and development of new and innovative school models.

Welcome to the Office of New School Models.

The School District of Philadelphia is committed to the opportunity for communities to explore innovative, successful educational ventures for all students. The Innovation Network is part of Superintendant Bill Hite’s Action Plan 3.0, which opens up the opportunity to explore evidence-based personalized learning models for high schools. The Action Plan details our efforts to build on our prior work, and design a system that serves the needs of our diverse students and their communities. Our objective is simple: Every child can learn. Every school can be great.

Whether you are interested in innovative school models, special admission schools, or opening a nontraditional school in your community, our office is here to answer your questions and guide you in your process.
