Let this school know you found them on Philadelphia magazine’s Find It Philly.

This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Revolution School is a new high school in Philadelphia where students co-create their unique academic journey. We welcomed our founding class in September 2019.

At Revolution School, we break down the walls between learning and life so students never have to question whether what they're learning is relevant. Our place-based, student-driven curriculum allows students to learn in the real world while doing work that truly matters.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

We believe, just as learners are always growing and learning, so should our teaching practices. At Revolution School, we are fortunate to be able to take a principled approach based on current research in education from around the globe.

Using evidence and research to inform our curriculum, we design for outcomes that lead to personal development and high levels of engagement, program growth, and real-world impact. We’re built to remain current.

We build on research and learning criteria that support essential knowledge, future-ready skills, and habits for success. In everything we do, we keep the four pillars of our educational philosophy in mind: diversity, place-based learning, systems thinking, and personal development.

What is your mission statement?

Breaking down the walls between learning and life.
