Francis Reppert Jr., 26, a high school teacher and tennis coach accused of taking photos up girls’ skirts

Francis Reppert Jr. spent his workdays as a math teacher at Palisades High School in Bucks County, about an hour north of Philadelphia. But he was using his classroom for more than teaching, according to the district attorney.

Reppert, 26, of Quakertown, faces criminal charges after police discovered upskirt photos of his female students that he had taken with his iPad, according to an affidavit filed in his arrest. On the device, the affidavit says, investigators also found photos of Reppert exposing himself in his classroom and writing “r/teachersgonewild” on a whiteboard, an apparent reference to a pornographic forum on the website Reddit.

Reppert was arraigned Friday morning on a charge of indecent exposure and six counts of invasion of privacy, court records show. He was released on $500,000 unsecured bond.

His Center City attorney, Matt Sedacca, declined to comment.

The district suspended Reppert in October, when an alleged victim contacted police, according to investigators. Palisades last month fired Reppert, who also coached boys’ and girls’ tennis.

Reppert’s arrest marks the second time in a year that a former teacher from the Palisades School District has faced criminal charges for victimizing students.
