Fanny Edel Falk Laboratory School is a K-8 tuition-based campus laboratory school affiliated with the School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh. Since 1931, Falk has been known for providing a learning environment that is grounded in community, diversity, progressive and experiential education, individualized instruction and a low teacher-student ratio. Being grounded in progressive education principles means the school community has a child-centered approach to learning that focuses on the social, emotional, and academic needs of each individual. It also means an emphasis on collaboration, intrinsic motivation, and active learning. The Falk community is also guided by the thoughts and intentions found within the faculty created booklet, Wishes for our Children.

Each year, our 60 faculty and staff members work with more than 6 intern teachers, 25 student teachers, researchers, and visitors to perform the major functions associated to Laboratory Schools: the development of innovative practices in education, research, the preparation of new teachers, professional development for practicing teachers, and the education of children using best established principles of education.

K-12th grade
 
Founded in 1845, Germantown Friends School (GFS) is a Quaker, K-12, co-ed independent day school dedicated to reaching that of God in every person. Our mission is to seek truth, challenge the intellect, honor differences, embrace the city, and nurture each student’s mind, body and spirit.
 
GFS takes its strong identity from five distinct elements: a vibrant intellectual community of teachers and students; an urban setting in the historic Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia; a diverse and multicultural faculty and student body who value difference as indispensable; a Quaker vision of what is possible for both individuals and communities; and a belief in fulfilling this vision through reflection, collaboration and action.
 
GFS seeks bright and eager students who demonstrate the potential to engage deeply with an intellectually rigorous academic program, and who will contribute to our vibrant school community.
