Urban Issues Class

Student Mentoring
William Penn Charter

The Urban Issues class of seniors at William Penn Charter works with one of Penn Charter’s public school partners, the Lingelbach School.. Seniors are placed in the K-8 classrooms of Lingelbach and serve as mentors, tutors and friends to the students. These classroom visits coincide with the Urban Issues class the seniors are taking at Penn Charter.  Through this study, they can examine more closely the opportunities and challenges public schools face.  As a result of this interaction, many Penn Charter students stay on at Lingelbach in the spring for their Senior Project in the same classroom where they worked during the year.
