This was SJGR's first visit to this historic Quaker school in Northeast Philadelphia.  The Frankford Friends School has been educating students since 1833, from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, and is still using the original Meeting House building from 1833.

After the investigation, it was found that there were several similarities in the psychic impressions separately reported by members of different teams. Two investigators sensed the presence of a young boy in the main room of the school, possibly named either ‘Marshall” or “Matthew”. A third investigator also reported the energy of a small child in this area, but did not specify a name or gender.
Investigators also reported either seeing or sensing adult males & females in both the basement and main room of the schoolhouse. One investigator thought the young boy was trying to convey the name of his mother & that the name began with the letter “A”, while another investigator reported the impression of a young female in the basement by the name or “Allison” or “Alice”. In addition, these two investigators also independently reported a male presence in both the basement and balcony. The male on the balcony gave the impression of the name “Eddie”, while the male in the basement crawlspace also gave the impression of an “E” name. It is unknown if these are separate entities, or perhaps a single male & single female spirit who was moving from one area of the building to another.

The physical evidence collected consisted of 14 EVPs, some of which appear to interact with investigators and their questions, and 35 positive photos with anomalies in them. Slightly more than the average of 4 to 6%, 7% of the photos and video obtained contained energy orbs, which may be one indication of spirit activity, and some photos correspond to events investigators were experiencing at the time the photo was taken.
There was no anomalous EMF, motion sensor, or temperature readings obtained during the investigation.
