At Pan American Academy we believe in achieving our goals through a rigorous curriculum and a strong school community.
Authorized in 2013, Pan American Academy became the first and only school in Philadelphia to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. We are one of four schools statewide offering this program to students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
Authorized in 2017 for the Middle Years Programme, Pan American Academy extended the International Baccalaureate to our middle school students in grades six through eight.
Pan American Academy prides itself on our positive school climate. We were identified by the School District of Philadelphia as a peer leader in the measures of school climate and student and parent engagement.
Students at Pan American Academy are committed to their education. We boast an average daily attendance rating of 95% or higher each day.
One metric the state of Pennsylvania uses to assess school performance is an indicator of Academic Growth (PVAAS). This metric measures how well students perform compared to how they have performed in the past on state assessments. According PVAAS, our three year average growth measure in English Language Arts met the state standard for PA Academic Growth. The three year average growth measure for math shows that our students have exceeded the standard for PA Academic Growth.
