We are thrilled to host you in the School District of Philadelphia (SDP) for your student teaching field experience. Our school district is the largest in the state of Pennsylvania, with more than 113,000 students attending one of 200+ district schools across the city. We believe the size and diversity of our district creates a unique training opportunity for teachers in training.
