Welcome, Head of Academics

On behalf of the faculty and staff, welcome to Freire Charter School. I am looking forward to working with all of you to provide our students with the opportunities, guidance, and support they need to succeed in school and in life.

With a student-centered pedagogical philosophy, we deliver a public school education the way it should be—intimate, reflective, and rigorous.   Our demanding college prep program focuses on educating the whole person and ambitiously seeks to achieve multiple goals.  We strive to help students, teachers, and parents realize the joy of learning for all our students.  We strive to facilitate in any way we can the intellectual, emotional, civic, and social development of young people so that they can become tomorrow’s leaders.  We strive to offer your child an array of challenging courses to maximize his or her college readiness so that he or she will be a “College-Ready Graduate at Graduation.”  These students are:

  • Intellectually competent
  • Socially skilled and mature
  • Socially just and responsible
  • Well-rounded

Please explore our website to learn more about our school and what it has to offer all members of our school community. My door is always open, and I welcome hearing from you at any time.
