The Albert M. Greenfield School is part of the Philadelphia District, and was named in honor of real estate developer Albert Monroe Greenfield. It was built in 1970 in the Rittenhouse neighborhood of Philadelphia.[1] The school serves students from Kindergarten to eighth grade. In 2015, Greenfield was at the center of an intense discussion of representation, when Philadelphia Magazine profiled it as one the best schools in the city[2], but the issue was widely criticized for featuring a group Greenfield students on the cover, and included no African American students. Many readers found that this did not reflect the diversity of students in Philadelphia[3][4]. In 2018, Greenfield was named a Department Of Education Blue Ribbon school.[5] The principal is Dan Lazar who joined the faculty in 2008, and the school mascot is the Greenfield Ram.
