Why Blow Pierce?


When it comes to success in the classroom, character matters just as much as rigorous academics. Just look at the outcomes from Blow Pierce Elementary and Middle. One of the District’s highest-performing Tier 1 charter schools, Blow Pierce builds scholars who pursue academic excellence with integrity, perseverance, confidence and courage.

Blow Pierce pre-K3-3 students develop a strong foundation in core subject areas through a thematic approach that brings social and cultural relevance to reading, language, mathematics, science and history. By focusing equally on students’ emotional, social, physical and academic development, Blow Pierce creates an environment of safety and respect where students embrace the character traits of high achievers.

Grades 5-8 at Blow Pierce Middle build on this approach by helping students gain a deeper understanding of core content, while taking ownership of their learning. Consistent with Friendship’s focus on early college exposure, students are introduced to the major concepts they will put to work later in Advanced Placement courses and Friendship’s Early College high school program.

Guided by dedicated teachers who are vested in each student’s success, Blow Pierce builds scholars who are on their way to becoming college completers.
