Profile: Math, Civics & Sciences Charter School (MCSCS) is one of only a few charter schools in the city to offer instruction from grades 1 through 12 under one roof. The school’s curriculum is designed to prepare students for either college or vocational training; the overhwelming majority of graduates (97-98%) go on to two- or four-year colleges, with the remainder entering vocational schools. Civic involvement is as important a part of the educational experience at MCSCS as math and science are, as the school has as a major goal producing “good citizens through the promotion of caring, character, and community service.” Among the projects MCSCS students have engaged in over the years are voter registration, feeding the homeless, and supporting Philadelphia police officers.
