This Philadelphia charter school has seen 17 students shot, 7 killed in the last thirteen months

How is this possible?

Simon Gratz High School is a charter school run by Mastery Schools in Philadelphia. Mastery Schools says the High school specializes in STEM, advanced placement classes, technical training, and dual enrollment. Video clips show a very modern and lavishly funded school.

During the 2020-2021 school year, a staggering fourteen students were victims of shootings. Five of them died!

In September of 2021, two more students and a recent graduate were shot and killed. A third student was seriously wounded by gunfire.

The school was once featured on the list of “Persistently Dangerous Schools” but was removed in 2012.
