Widener Memorial School

Student Mentoring
William Penn Charter

William Penn Charter has partnership with Widener Memorial School, the only school in the Philadelphia School District exclusively devoted to physically disabled students. Students entering Penn Charter in pre-K will have at least four different service learning experiences with Widener before they graduate: in the 4th grade, students from both Widener and Penn Charter pack food together at a local food recovery agency, Middle and Upper Schools students work at Widener during their Days of Service and the Penn Charter Varsity Basketball team plays an annual game against Widener’s Varsity team.  Finally, the seniors at Penn Charter can take a class titled “The Art of Caring; working with physical disabilities.”  Through this class, the students focus on disability issues as well as work directly with students in the Widener classrooms.
