The Wissahickon Charter School has been planned around three essential elements:

  • An environmental focus recognizing the importance of active learning that allows students to experience the curriculum
  • Recognition of service learning projects as a key element in students’ academic success
  • An emphasis on family involvement at all levels of the school organization, with special emphasis on parents as partners in the learning experiences of their children
