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.

By embedding our STEM curriculum in real world societal challenges we mold engaged citizens who are committed to the collective good.
