Message from Our C.E.O./Principal

Greetings and welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We always appreciate parents taking the time to visit our school’s website for information about Fannie C. Williams Charter School.

This marks our 10th year as an educational institution serving the children of our community. Six years ago we became a charter school striving to form a team between staff, parents, and the community to develop our scholars academically. That mission has not changed. It is our mission to achieve the highest academic success through the forces of these stakeholders in the development of our youth.

Fannie C. Williams Charter School is a Type 5 charter developed under the auspices of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. We are currently in our 6th year operating as a charter school. During the 2015-2016 academic year, our charter was extended by BESE for an additional six years.

FCWCS operates as an open enrollment facility for students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8. Current enrollment usually is composed of about 610 students from approximately 360 families. We have spent 10 years developing a culture of stressing the 4Ps–promptness, politeness, productivity, and preparedness–all invaluable traits that we attempt to instill in our Warriors from Pre-K through Grade 8.

We appreciate your interest in our family of learners and educators. Please join us during the many opportunities to visit and interact with our Fannie Family that have become traditions on our campus.

Best regards,

Kelly S. Batiste
C.E.O./Principal
