Parents and students interested in Paulo Freire Freedom School for the 2015-2016 school year are encouraged to join a tour/presentation next week at each of the two schools on Thursday, 1/29. The PFFS-Downtown (47 E. Pennington St) experience will be from 5:30-6:15 pm and the PFFS-University (300 E. University Blvd) experience will be from 6:30-7:00 pm.
The formal ‘Open Enrollment’ period for Paulo Freire Freedom School – Downtown and Paulo Freire Freedom School – University is January 1st through March 15th. We are accepting enrollment applications for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade in 2015-2016 at both schools. There are 25 6th grade openings at each school, however, openings in 7th and 8th grade will be limited. Current students in 6th and 7th grade have enrollment preference for the 25 openings in the 7th and 8th grades respectively in 2015-2016 at the two schools. However current students are not automatically enrolled for the next year. All current 6th and 7th grade students who would like to return for 7th and 8th grade next year must also submit an Open Enrollment application at this time or they will not be enrolled in the 2015-2016 school year.
The ‘Open Enrollment’ period will close on March 15th and shortly thereafter we will conduct a lottery at both schools at each grade level where there are more applicants than openings available. If you are interested in enrolling your young person for next year’s PFFS 6th, 7th or 8th grade you may enroll online at Enroll PFFS-D and/or Enroll PFFS-U.
There will be evening presentations/tours at each school in January and February for prospective parents and students. Student shadowing can also be scheduled by contacting each school (PFFS-D 520-352-0057 and PFFS-U 520-624-7552).
