Friendship Public Charter School is the area's largest non-profit public school management organization, serving nearly 8,000 students from pre-school (three years old) to 12th grade on ten campuses. Friendship operates both public charter and partnership schools with Baltimore City and District of Columbia Public Schools. Since its inception in 1997, Friendship Public Charter School has enabled thousands of students in underserved communities to become real achievers. Friendship students live in some of the city’s most underserved communities where 75% are eligible for free or reduced lunch. Friendship applies its unique educational model with winning results to improve academic performance, educate the "whole child," and offer families support services with the goal of preparing 100% of our students to enter and complete college. Friendship operates around a simple principle: all students must be prepared for higher education and the career of their choice by ensuring mastery of the skills, knowledge and tools needed to succeed in the 21st century global economy. The Security Officer performs all tasks directly related to providing a safe, secure learning and working environment at their assigned school, including the physical security of the building and grounds, the safety of the assigned staff, students, and visitors at the school, and the safeguarding and protection of Friendship Public Charter School system assets.
