Deep Roots is an actively anti-racist and inclusive organization. We serve all students, support all families, and advocate for our communities. Our learners and team will discover their purpose, potential and actively work to dismantle barriers within and beyond our walls.
We are the first charter school in Philadelphia to be approved in 10 years, and we are located in the Kensington catchment community.
