Every student should experience learning successes,.
become literate, confident and caring, be able to think critically, solve problems, and .
communicate effectively. Students will become productive respectful members of the .
My school is being created to maintain an environment that allows students the .

Port Richmond Charter (PRC) will be located on the 2800 block of Richmond .
Street. I believe this would be an ideal location for various reasons. This location has .
easy access to and from I-95. There is an abandoned warehouse that stands there at the .
present time. My plans include demolishing the warehouse and building the school from .
the ground up.
The construction of the school will start in the basement. The basement is going .
to be the most complicated portion of the project. The intention is that the basement will .
include the principal characteristics of the school, the cafeteria, the gymnasium and .
ultimately a theater. The cafeteria will be equipped with an industrial kitchen so that all .
food will be served hot, fresh and extremely nutritious. There will be drama .
classes given to all students who are interested, explaining the need for the theater. .
Sometimes the children will write their own plays; other times they will perform more .
traditional ones. The theatre will also be used for dance lessons, such as ballet. The .
majority will be ballet, but students at PRC will also have the opportunity to take music .
instrument lessons in the theatre as well. The gymnasium will be the most elaborate .
segment of the project. It will obtain a basketball/volleyball court, all equipment needed .
for gymnastics, also an indoor field that will be used for field hockey and soccer. .
The expected ages for this school is the pre-teen ages (12-15). It is my belief .
that we are compelled to not only educate their minds but we must do our best to keep .
