Welcome to The Facing History School!

Our mission is to graduate students who are: a) lifelong learners with the skills and knowledge for academic and professional success and b) prepared for the responsibilities of being active, thoughtful participants and leaders in a democratic society.
We opened our doors in September 2005, and many of our core founding values have remained the same: a focus on performance based assessment; a belief in distributive leadership; an emphasis on building relationships among staff and students and a desire to know each child – their academic strengths and challenges, their interests, their lives outside of school and their dreams.
We believe that our relevant, academically rigorous program and the supportive, caring structures we have in place make us more than just an excellent school, but an excellent learning community. With the guidance of our lead partner, Facing History and Ourselves, we ask our students to go on a four year journey to help prepare them for the ethical and moral decisions of adulthood. Our school’s activities, structure, and curricula are centered around four themes: Identity, Caring and Responsibility, Decision-making, and Choosing to Participate.
