About Freire Schools
Freire Charter Schools opened their doors in Philadelphia in 1999 as a catalyst to the accountable schools’ movement that has taken place across the region since then. Since Freire’s founding, the network has achieved excellence for our children through a rigorous college preparatory program and a commitment to peace and nonviolence in our community – both within our walls and beyond. Across our four campuses in Philadelphia and Wilmington our teachers now serve over 2,000 students in grades 5 - 12.
Freire students beat local, state, and national averages year after year in their college persistence rates. In each graduating class, 89% to 92% of all of our first-year college freshmen return to college for their sophomore year, compared to just 69% nationally. Our growth mindset is deeply rooted in all we do. We are safe, we are real, and we need you to push us even further!
Freire offers a very competitive salary and benefits package, a strong commitment to developing all staff as professionals invested in life-long learning, and the opportunity to work with the best students in the nation.
