Nationally recognized, Mastery Charter Schools is a growing network of college preparatory, middle-high schools that serves 1,750 neighborhood students throughout Philadelphia. Our first school, our Lenfest Campus located in Center City, has increased the reading and math proficiency of incoming freshman by an average of 35 percent.
Three of our schools were conversions of Philadelphia public schools: Shoemaker in West Philadelphia, Pickett in Germantown and Thomas in South Philadelphia. Since Mastery assumed management of these schools, grades have increased an average of 35 points in all subjects and in all grades and both violence and student mobility have dropped, 85% and 30%, respectively. Mastery Charter Schools Shoemaker Campus, located in West Philadelphia has eliminated and has, in fact, surpassed the achievement gap.
Mastery combines a rigorous academic curriculum with a “sweat the small stuff” culture and a proactive attention to culture. We integrate modern management and educational best practices to drive a results-focused organizational culture. Mastery insists on both high expectations and high support so all students can achieve success.
