Where do FFS Families Live?
Our families come from all over the city and beyond. For children in first grade and older who reside in Philadelphia and live at least 1.5 miles from school, bus transportation is provided by the School District of Philadelphia. There are three yellow buses transporting FFS students from around the city, and only FFS children ride those buses.
Older students often take the El to school. We’re just a few blocks from SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line.
Some school districts outside of the city (such as Lower Merion) provide bus service for our students as well. At just 1.4 miles from both the Betsy Ross bridge and the Tacony-Palmyra bridge, we’ve often had students from New Jersey enrolled. Some of our teachers and administrators live there as well.
