Philadelphia High-Achieving Schools To Increase Enrollment

The Philadelphia Inquirer (4/18, Graham) reports that nineteen of Philadelphia's highest-achieving schools will offer enrollment to some 2,300 more students next year, adding, "The expansion 'lets the city of Philadelphia know that the School District of Philadelphia is investing in the growth of high-quality, high-performing school options,' Penny Nixon, the district's chief academic officer, said at a news conference Tuesday at Girls High. ... The high schools are all citywide or magnet schools that already require an application for admittance; elementary schools will be open to students who qualify for a transfer under No Child Left Behind guidelines, and then for any student who applies for a voluntary transfer."
