Philadelphia Normal School for Girls
Due to growing demand, the school moved from Chester Street to a larger building made specifically for the school at Sergeant Street in 1853. Sometime during 1853, the Old Central High School (Juniper Street) occupied the Model School building while the new Central High School was being built at the southeast corner of Broad and Green Streets. The Model School moved in 1854 to a new building at Sergeant Street. The schools' new title was the Girls' Normal School.
