For the Middle Grades (6-8)
Paulo Freire Freedom School – Downtown is located in Downtown Tucson at City High School. PFFS-Downtown opened in 2014 as a full-immersion STEM middle school (see Arizona STEM Network’s STEM Immersion Guide) and the vanguard demonstration site/lab school of CITY Center for Collaborative Learning. STEM education means many things to many people. STEM education at PFFS-Downtown is about empowering students to tackle the real world challenges faced by the larger community. Our students are practiced problem solvers who think creatively and analytically; who propose solutions both in the classroom and the community. By embedding our STEM curriculum in real world societal challenges we mold engaged citizens who are committed to the collective good.
