New website to help parents choose a school in Philly



Many Philadelphia parents want to take advantage of the city's varied school options but feel they need better information.

The goal is to provide parents with a one-stop shop for information and quality ratings on the vast majority of Philadelphia's district, charter, and private schools, which number close to 500.

"Right now, you have many parents who don't realize the options available to them," said Mark Gleason, PSP executive director. "We've taken on the challenge of creating a multimedia resource that allows them to search for almost every school in the city of Philadelphia."
