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 contributors to their communities and the world.
Our teachers are key in determining our scholars’ development as intellectually curious, life-long learners. Friendship Public Charter School’s teachers exceed expectations and take on a range of responsibilities in order to ensure every student achieves the academic skills, intellectual habits, and character traits necessary to succeed in the nation’s top universities and beyond. With unwavering commitment, passion, and exceptional talent, our teachers lead our vision for quality and equitable education. Friendship teachers recognize the challenges faced in closing the achievement gap, but persist in leading our children to exceptional heights through data driven academic gains, comprehensive and engaging instruction, and outstanding leadership.
To help our teachers excel, 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.
