Edward W. Bok Technical High School - Closed 2013

Bok Tech, located at 9th and Mifflin in South Philadelphia is one of a handful of the city’s remaining technical schools.  I wrote about the history of the building and of technical education for Hidden City here.  To comply with fire code, the top two floors have been sealed off for decades, you can see those photos all the way at the bottom.

In April of 2013, the state-appointed School Reform Commission voted to close 22 schools, Bok is one of them.
