Mastery Charter School – Clymer Elementary is a turnaround school based on the model developed by Mastery Charter High School -- Lenfest Campus (founded in 2001). Mastery Charter’s mission is to prepare urban youth for success in higher education and in the global economy. Mastery was selected in March 2011 by the Clymer Renaissance School Advisory Council for a complete restart to begin in the fall of 2011. Clymer is a K-8 school in the North Philadelphia section of the city. In September 2011, the George Clymer Elementary School was converted into a new independent charter school within the Mastery Charter School network. The existing students remained but Mastery implemented its own program. Since that time, the Mastery network along with school-level leadership and members of the SAC (current membership is more than 50% returning Clymer parents) have worked together to refine and implement the plan now in place for turning around this once failing school into a high-performing school. We received positive reviews for the initial changes and are confident that, supported by our robust planning process, our students are more than capable of achieving a high level of success. Mastery Clymer serves approximately 540 students in grades K-8.
