About our school: Francine Delany New School for Children is an amazing community where students, families, staff members and community members come together to grow, learn and support each other. We are a tuition free, public charter school that serves 176 students grades K-8. Students are challenged to develop critical thinking skills and to reach ambitious academic goals while developing self-respect and respect for others. Curiosity and creativity are valued; teachers function as guides and partners. Students read in self-chosen age-and ability-appropriate novels, write on self-chosen topics, use primary sources for research, and use manipulatives to study math concepts. This method of teaching requires small classroom sizes (we average 20 students per class), and a strong sense of personal accountability from each student. We believe that each student learns differently and work to incorporate a variety of methods including integration of arts, differentiation and focus on individual strengths in our teaching.

We value social justice and teach through this lens throughout the grades.

FDNSC Social Justice Statement: Francine Delany New School for Children is an inclusive community that is committed to promoting social justice and preserving the inherent worth and human dignity of every person. As individuals and as a school we will: Practice fairness and equality for people of every race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic status, religious belief, political view and other identities. Analyze multiple perspectives on historical and contemporary issues. Build a community of critical thinkers who are active in the world. We are committed to ongoing learning, raising awareness, and fostering dialogue around issues of social justice.
