Fannie C. Williams Charter School

School Profile

Fannie C. Williams School was established during the 2007-2008 school year on the site of the former Fannie C. Williams Middle on Dwyer Road in New Orleans East.

It was opened as a RSD school–Recovery School District–with open enrollment for families returning to the city’s eastern area after the storms of 2005. We have open access for all students who reside in Orleans Parish. FCW educates students in grades Pre-K through 8, and we currently have a population of about 610 students for this academic school year. This academic year, 2014-2015, marks our fourth year as a Type 5 charter school (Type 5 charter schools are sanctioned by the Recovery School District).

Our student body is composed primarily of African-American students (97%), but we do also have students of Hispanic, Asian, and European descent in our school body. We welcome all to our family of learners.
