School Notes:

  • Students are surrounded by challenging and caring teachers and mentors
  • Individualized student attention in an average of 10 students per class
  • The school is neighborhood focused, most students go home for lunch
  • All teachers live within 2 miles of the school
  • Critical thinking and life application focused teaching
  • The Infusionomics program teaches economic literacy in all school subjects
  • The F&F reading curriculum which has produced tremendous student achievement gains in vocabulary, reading comprehension, total reading, critical thinking, problem solving, and written expression.
  • Accessibility to those least able to afford it. LOGAN Hope tuition pays for less than 10% of the school's operating budget and there is usually little or no charge to attend the other programs.
  • Infusionomics: An economic literacy program where the infusion of economic thinking and concepts into the core academic subjects results in a multi-dimensional understanding of free market economic concepts and sound decision making. At the same time this program also engages students in all core academic subjects due to the relevance of the economic concepts to their everyday lives.
  • F&F: A uniquely designed research-based and research-supported instructional reading program. We adopted this curriculum in 2005 and have witnessed tremendous student achievement gains in vocabulary, reading comprehension, total reading, critical thinking, problem solving, and written expression.
  • Field trips: LOGAN Hope is able to do experiential education by taking advantage of the many field trip opportunities that exist throughout the Philadelphia area. These out-of-classroom experiences serve to contextualize and concrete concepts learned inside the classroom.
  • Real life application & critical thinking emphasis: At LOGAN Hope we concentrate on developing real skills and deep understanding of material instead of the test-taking skills taught at the other neighborhood schools. Because of our emphasis on critical thinking and life application our students consistently out-perform their public school neighbors.
