Class of 2026


Ms. Jen Reed: Freshman and Sophomore Academies Principal

Dear Bartram Class of 2026 Parents and Guardians:

My name is Jennifer Reed and I am honored to be the assistant principal for the 10th Grade Academy at John Bartram High School.  I look forward to getting to know you and your high schooler – the newest members of Bartram’s Class of 2026.  Welcome!!

Please frequently check all your devices and mailboxes for information on important events, and most importantly, guidelines to help you and your high schooler with the transition to Bartram.  Communications about timelines, access to technology, and important 9th grade events will be coming from the School District of Philadelphia, our Principal, Mr. Brian R. Johnson, and/or myself.

Here is a little bit more about me:

–        I was born and raised in Philly;

–        I love music and movies;

–        I am the first person in my family to go to college;

–        I am currently in my last year of a doctoral program at Saint Joseph’s University;

–        I am the proud mom of recent twin high school graduates.

As we all know, these are challenging and unprecedented times; our lives changing from minute to minute.  The John Bartram High School community is committed to uniting and supporting one another and doing whatever we can to be there for the students and families in our school.  It is our goal that every member of the Class of 2026 will finish high school on time and on track.

The Bartram teachers and staff are unwavering in their dedication to your children and educational excellence in our city.  I am proud to work alongside of them and to be a part of the leadership team.

You will soon be receiving more information about the transition to school in the fall.  In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.  I am here to serve you.
