Rigorous Hiring Process
The Paulo Freire School is committed to providing the families of Newark with the high quality secondary educational opportunity. Therefore, we believe that a rigorous hiring process, which includes an in-depth analysis of a candidate’s pedagogy and praxis, will ensure that our students receive the highest quality of education possible. Our students’ academic success demands that we are very selective in our hiring process. Mission-oriented, results-oriented, energetic, flexible, creative, and positive candidates will be hired by The Freire School.
The Paulo Freire Charter School is designed to close the achievement gap and promote social engagement through community service. Our mission is accomplished through an extended school day (8:40 am - 3:40 pm), and extended school year (185 days).
