Comments

In 1864, classes from the Penn Grammar School on 8th and Thompson Streets were moved into the Park Avenue School and Penn School became a secondary school. Both the boys and girls school were held in the same building. This building was within the twentieth section: "The boundaries of the Twentieth Ward of the City of Philadelphia, which comprises the Twentieth Section of the First School District of Pennsyvlania, are Broad and Poplar Streets, to Sixth Street, to Susquehanna Avenue, to Eleventh Street, to Montgomery Avenue, to Broad Street, to Poplar Street," (Curtis, p. 357).
