School Background

John B. Stetson Charter School is a community school serving  more than 800 students in grade 5-8. Our school is open to students who live within its catchment zone which includes parts of surrounding neighborhoods like Kensington/West Kensington, Tioga Park, Juniata and Richmond.
Since ASPIRA Schools began management of Stetson in 2011 as part of the Philadelphia School District's Renaissance initiative, the school has seen dramatic improvements in key areas of academics and school climate. It also continually expands its work out of the classroom with students, parents and the local community at large to fulfill its role as a community school. Today, it's a key institution embodying education and social improvement for an entire community.
Stetson offers year-round open enrollment for new students who qualify. We encourage you to learn more about Stetson by exploring this website, following us on social media and speaking to members of the John B. Stetson Community.
