Overbrook Elementary School is a small, child-centered and family oriented K-5 public school, located in the Overbrook Park section of Philadelphia. It first opened its doors in 1907 and has a current enrollment of 400 students.
Overbrook Elementary School's vision is to create a high-achieving school that makes considerable gains in student achievement each year. The school recognizes the role of technology, community resources, and school support in enabling all students to become lifelong learners.
Its mission is to provide students with a solid elementary education as the basis for future learning and for model citizenship in the twenty-first century. The school emphasizes growth in academic and social skills and strives to make each child feel protected, cared for, and respected as an individual.
The Civic Engagement Office has been involved with Overbrook Elementary since 2001.
