Education

YESPhilly has classes in all the core subjects required by the School District of Philadelphia, as well as media and technology classes.   Our school is designed to help students become confident and competent lifelong learners while preparing them to succeed in post-secondary education and careers.  Classes are small and are designed so students can work at their “right” instructional level and get the individual attention they need. YESPhilly classes are varied, and include hands-on and group activities with materials that make learning fun, relevant and effective. 

Being in the YESPhilly program has been a big help for me. The people here make sure you stay focused and are all about helping you become a successful person. Since I've been here, I’ve learned that no matter what you're working on, try your hardest and you will get good results. "Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard."
