FLA Core Values

FLA’s core values are a  result of our collective efforts to strengthen student ownership and commitment to education, pride in their community, and college/career readiness for post-high school opportunities.  Students at FLA will have acquired each of the core values via a Leadership Commitment (chosen from a menu of options) by the time they graduate. Each core value is a leadership quality all FLA students are expected to exhibit and is supported by all faculty and staff.

FLA Instructional Focus

If teachers use data to create learning conditions to engage students in productive struggle via grade-aligned critical thinking tasks and daily academic discourse, then students will be college and career ready.

FLA : A Community School

A Community School is a partnership between school staff, families, youth, and the community to raise student achievement by ensuring that children are physically, emotionally, and socially prepared to learn. A Community School serves as a center of the neighborhood by providing access to critical programs and services like health care, mentoring, expanded learning programs, adult education, and other services that support the whole child, engage families, and strengthen the entire community. In the NYC Community School approach, FLA is paired with Center for Supportive Schools to work collaboratively with the principal and the School Leadership Team (SLT) to carry out the work at the school.
