About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Boys Latin of Philadelphia Charter School Reviews
THIS SCHOOL IS GREAT FOR THE TRANSITION OF BOYS TO MEN!!!
Boys Latin is a fantastic school for our young men of Philadelphia. The staff take their time with each student and they are always on point. They care about these students and I would encourage any parent that have a teenage son, grandson,nephew,etc to consider sending that child here. My son has been here for 2yrs and he really enjoys it. Also, the entire staff have cellular phones so that each student can call them whenever they have a problem with their assignments, so whats that telling us as parents-"No child should fail". Thank You Mr. Hardy, to you and your staff.
This is a very good school. The teachers are very nice and patient with the students.The teachers goes out they way to help both the parents and the students. For example I e-mailed a teacher about a questions and it was late in the evening, could not believe that the teacher e-mailed back in less than 5 minutes. My son LOVES the school and all his teachers. I can't stop him for talking about how he loves this school. He is doing well. I don't have to worry about my son getting into any fights because this school has very good security staffs that patrols the area before, during ,and after school. The after school program is great. This school WILL get your son in the RIGHT directions for college. I am so glad my son goes to this school!
