“Giving meaning to the lives of our children in the present while preparing them to become active citizens in a democratic society” – Grace Lee Boggs
The Folk Arts – Cultural Treasures Charter School comes out of a history of struggle for:
- equity and justice for Asian American students and immigrant and refugee students of all races in the public schools;
- public investment and public space in the under-served Chinatown community;
- public schooling that engages children as active participants in working for a just society.
FACTS provides students in grades K-8 with an exemplary education that utilizes traditional arts and cultures found within their own and neighboring communities as the catalyst for critical inquiry and community engagement.
