UPenn Acceptances!

SMP loves to celebrate the work of their students! We are proud to announce that for 2015, we had a record number of our students accepted to the University of Pennsylvania. Six students were accepted to PENN and five are enrolled. These students make up the freshmen class of 2019 and are Najay Greenidge, Helen Huang, Lizette Grajales, Zahraa Mohammed and William Trang. They graduated from various Philadelphia public and charter high schools including MaST Community Charter School, Central High School, Freire Charter School and the Franklin Learning Center. Helen is a student in the School of Nursing while the remaining scholars are in the School of Arts and Sciences. We are excited to welcome them to campus and look forward to watching all that they achieve during their time at the University of Pennsylvania!
