As the nation's first multi-campus charter school, Friendship Public Charter School has been producing college-ready students for over 15 years. From Preschool through 12th grade, Friendship invests in providing a rigorous academic curriculum that enables our children to excel as ethical, literate, and well-rounded leaders in a 21st century economy. We surpass our peers across the District in public education with a 91% graduation and college entrance rate. To this end, we also hold the quality, success, and development of our teachers with paramount importance. We provide a number of professional growth and development opportunities which have afforded us both the 2010 and 2011 DC Teachers of the Year, and a number of outstanding leaders who launched their careers in our classrooms.
The FPCS welcomes volunteers of all ages who are willing to dedicate their time and skills to support students, teachers, and administration.
FPCS contracts with a variety of volunteer groups in the District of Columbia, to recruit, screen, train, place and support volunteer academic mentors in the District of Columbia Public Schools. School volunteer programs are designed to provide ongoing support to students in grades K-12 during the school day and beyond. Our partners coordinates tutoring and mentoring programs in literacy, math, enrichment, MCAS preparation, career education, coaching and more.
If you are a teacher seeking a classroom volunteer, be sure to get the permission of your principal or headmaster.
