A New Frontier Of Learning - Legacy-Advisors

St. Martins de Porres School is a Catholic grammar school for grades K-8 located in North Philadelphia in an economically depressed and crime-ridden area. The school has served poor and minority families for over 100 years. Their mission is to provide an excellent, affordable and sustainable education in their community for years to come. The Friends of St. Martin de Porres School is a charitable organization that was formed in 2004 and in 2010, its Board of Directors assumed the leadership and future financial sustainability of the school in an agreement with the Archdiocese. The Legacy Foundation grant provided two Smart Boards, which are computerized, interactive video and audio blackboards, for their 2nd and 6th grade classrooms. These Smart Boards allow teachers to utilize the internet with special software and touch screen technology, therefore engaging students and providing a higher quality instruction.
