Meet Your Neighbor: Bodine High School for International Affairs


I remember my Senior Year of High School. I remember my friends, the teachers, my sports, my hair! It was the 80's and mullets were cool then! I remember counting the days to summer that last year as a Bay Side High Senior and pondering my future as a Tennis Pro/Surfer/Accountant. Decisions, decisions...Yeah, those were special days for me and I am sure for many of you as well. If we only knew then what we know now, right?

That is why it was my great pleasure and honor to speak to the Graduating Class at Bodine High for their first ever Career Day this month. I wanted to introduce them to you by sharing the letter they sent to me. I wish the best for the students and want to say it is a privilege to have Bodine High School right here in Northern Liberties.

Bodine, which consistently ranks as one of the top high schools in the country, is an academic magnet school for students in grades 9 - 12. It is a smaller school, with less than 600 students, and is affiliated with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, with a focus on international affairs.  The school is located at 1104 N. 4th Street.
