A private school
located in Philadelphia
, founded by William Penn
himself in 1689. As it was founded by Penn, the school follows the principles of Quakerism
. Despite it's motto, "Good Instruction Is Better Than Riches
", the cost of being able to attend is at least 5 figures a year
A K-12 school, the student body is less than 1,000, and, for the most part, is composed of rich white kids, including some so dumb that the smarter students question on a daily basis why they haven't been expelled. Though one would think that such a school focuses on academics only, Penn Charter holds the record for longest scholastic rivalry with Germantown Academy. Despite this, the drama and music programs are excellent.
Over the 01-02 school year, a new addition in the Richard B. Fischer Middle School was constructed. So, starting in September 2002, the Upper Schoolers will have the run of the Main Building.
