School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2016-17)
Francophone Charter School of Oakland offers an engaging, well-rounded, bilingual education that supports academic success for all students.
The mission of the Francophone Charter School of Oakland (Francophone Charter School) is to provide a dual-immersion curriculum to a diverse community of students. Our goal is to develop bilingual and bi-literate global citizens who are open-minded and value intellectual curiosity, personal integrity and creativity.
Francophone Charter School will achieve its mission by:
- Providing an academically rigorous curriculum that teaches students to excel in French and English and prepares them for the best high schools and colleges;
- Preparing students for the 21st century by offering a well-rounded education that also incorporates global themes, arts and technology;
- Valuing and incorporating community into the life of the school, including civic engagement on a local and global level;
- Recruiting and maintaining a diverse student body and staff;
- Teaching the value of inquiry, analysis, evaluation and creative problem solving as strategies for making well-informed decisions;
- Encouraging students and staff to work in teams, learn from each other, and share in the decision-making process;
- Fostering values of accountability and responsibility.
The focus of our instructional approach is the dual language immersion model, in which students spend at least 50% of their instructional day learning in French and the remainder in English. Students in transitional kindergarten, kindergarten, first and second grades will receive 90% of their instructional time in French. The ratio of French to English instruction gradually decreases over a student’s experience at Francophone Charter School until reaching a ratio of 50/50. The common core state standards form the baseline of our academic expectations for our curriculum and our students.
Educating the Whole Child
In addition to our core instructional approach, we also intgrate social emotional learning, technology, arts and culture, global citizenship, and college and career into our curriculum and into our daily school life.
Our goal is to develop engaged, well-rounded, bilingual students who have a strong academic foundation to lead them into the future.
