Philadelphia School Partnership

OverviewSuggest Edit

PSP is a nonprofit organization that invests in the creation and expansion of great schools in Philadelphia. PSP is raising a $100 million “Great Schools Fund” in support of education reform in Philadelphia, and investing those funds as growth capital to support the transformation, expansion and start-up of high-performing schools in the charter, District and private sectors. We measure success by the number of students the City moves out of failing schools by creating better-quality school options, and we judge school quality on the basis of student academic outcomes.
