Chesapeake Bay/Delaware Valley Chapter

Region Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

Chapter Event

Thursday, November 16, 2017
9:30 am to Noon

Workshop School
The Workshop School
221 Hanson St., Philadelphia, PA 19139

The Workshop School, located in a garage type facility that once housed the Automotive Academy for West Philadelphia High School is the place, but the building is not the focus for this event. It's what's happening inside that is truly noteworthy. The Workshop is a Public Citywide School, enrolling 250 students in grades 9 through 12. There is no academic admission requirement. The school's environment is hands-on and project- based, and successful students are those eager to explore their interests and passions, willing to collaborate, and able to persist through highs and lows. Academic skills are developed by working on real world challenges. The culture of the school fosters creativity, risk-taking and responsibility for self and others. Students are encouraged to own their successes and challenges and chart their own course to a fulfilling, meaningful life as students, workers and community members.

Learn about Workshop Industries, a unique after school program where students receive first-hand experience on learning how a business operates. Students conceive, design, manufacture and sell the products they create. In this non-graded adventure, students are rewarded with monetary compensation, just as they would be in any other business. This is real life at its best – real work leads to real money.

  • Experience The Workshop School, an innovative, project-based public high school with a mission of teaching students to change the world.
  • Interact with "Students in Action" unleashing their creative and intellectual potential to solve the world's toughest problems.
  • Hear from co-founder and Principal Simon Hauger, winner of the Philly Geek 2017 Mission Leader of the Year Award.
  • Engage in a panel discussion with Teachers and Students.

Attendance is limited to 20.
