The PFFS Commitment
“At Paulo Freire Freedom School we believe that children grow not only academically and physically, but emotionally, socially, and spiritually as well. The growth they experience in these areas is interconnected with their academic success and with their health and happiness as a whole person. We are committed to supporting and challenging every child to rise to their full potential. At Paulo Freire Freedom School we create developmentally appropriate learning environments – each designed to support students’ unique developmental needs and capacities. Within these carefully designed learning environments individual students are supported and challenged to grow and become…to rise and transform…to develop into integrally whole human beings (body, heart, mind, and soul).” see PFFS Mission.
PFFS-Downtown and PFFS-University are committed to creating and maintaining school cultures/communities that are safe for each and every one of the young people (preadolescents) entrusted to us – so that they can grow and discover who they are as human beings. We believe that diversity among individuals and the unique developmental journey of each must be honored and celebrated. And we believe that part of this preadolescent growth and discovery involves their sexual and gender identity. It is critical that every young person feels safe and supported on their own developmental journey. At PFFS, we are allies!
