Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School is committed to placing students at the center of their own education. We partner with the New York Performance Standards Consortium to anchor our work in student portfolios and performance assessment; we partner with Big Picture Learning to anchor our work in real world learning.
The Night of Resistance is a celebration of immigrant identities. It is a direct response to the negative stereotypes and politicians that paint immigrants as criminals and invaders. We resist this narrative.
FLHFHS has been included in the Christensen Institute's national Canopy Project. The Canopy identifies schools across the United States that are leaders in innovative approaches to student-centered learning. FLHFHS is one of only 9 schools in NYC to be awarded this identification.
More than 160 Fannie Lou students participated in the Summer Youth Employment Program. Our students worked to create new media with Career Clue and Educational Video Center, to care for Concrete Plant Park with Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice, to explore environmental justice issues with Children's Aid to name just a few of the wonderful opportunities.
