Eleven Philadelphia schools removed from state’s ‘persistently dangerous’ list

    There’s less Philadelphia representation on this year’s list of the state’s persistently dangerous schools. The School District of Philadelphia reduced its qualifying schools by about half, knocking 11 schools off the list.

    The Pubilc School Notebook has the compelte list of Philadelphia schools classified as “persistently dangerous,” as well as the list of schools removed from the list.

    All the schools on the current list are high schools, and span several parts of the city. Those removed cater to various ages, and include three Renaissance Schools and three Promise Academies.

    Persistently dangerous schools get their rankings based on the type and number of dangerous incidents among students in a given school year.
