William Penn Charter School is committed to the Quaker testimony of stewardship. We continually develop our educational program to include environmental concerns, teaching our students to be good stewards of the earth. We make decisions around resources that are mindful of their ecological impact. By cultivating a respect for nature and the interconnectedness of the world’s systems, we inspire students to become lifelong stewards and agents for global change.Mission Statement
Supported by the Strategic Vision
Penn Charter's Strategic Vision articulated a "green" strategy for the school — and that initiative is well under way. These pages demonstrate some of the exciting work in classrooms and clubs.
