Comments

The school was organized in 1850 and a secondary and primary section was added. In 1867, the secondary section moved to the Cohocksink School on 4th Street and Montgomery Avenue, (Curtis, p. 351). This building was within the nineteenth section: "The boundaries of the Nineteenth Ward of the City of Philadelphia, which comprises the Nineteenth Seciton of the First School District of Pennsylvania, are Frankford Avenue and Norris Street, to Oxford, to Sixth, to Germantown Avenue, to Lehigh Avenue, to Kensington Avenue, to Front Street, to Norris, to Frankford Avenue," (Curtis, p. 347).
