Fannie C. Williams Charter School

Wednesdays are Warrior Folder Day! Parents, please check those book bags for important papers needing your attention.


The mission of Fannie C. Williams Charter School is to achieve the highest success through collaboration of staff, parents, and community.​​

Welcome from our CEO/Principal

We're back on campus, staff and students, beginning the 2023-2024 school year. As always, we are pleased you have selected Fannie C. Williams Charter School as your family's learning community.

In our 17 years as a community of learners, we've traveled a long way. FCWCS has been around long enough to see former students return with their children and this year, we have a former student on the instructional staff. There is no greater affirmation of what you're doing than to have former students return as parents or staff members! .

We will also keep you in "the know" by communicating with you through this website, our monthly newsletter–The Warrior News–the Family Handbook, Class Dojo, School Message, Facebook, Instagram, and JPams. Also, any questions you may have can be answered by email using Your inquiries will be answered by me or someone else knowledgeable on staff.

Hoping to see you soon, on campus, at the many activities we have planned for the upcoming year.

Kelly S. Batiste CEO/Principal

There were many illustrious names above the entrances of New Orleans schools before the disasters of 2005 struck. Some remain; others are now footnotes in New Orleans educational history. A. P. Tureaud, Langston Hughes, Thomy Lafon, Ernest “Dutch” Morial, John McDonogh, L. B. Landry, Israel Augustine, Valena C. Jones, Sarah T. Reed, Warren Easton, Alceé Fortier, George Washington Carver, Booker T. Washington, Walter L. Cohen–the list was and is endless. Our campus is graced with the name of Biloxi native and outstanding New Orleans educator Fannie C. Williams.

Fannie C. Williams was born March 23, 1882 in Biloxi, Mississippi. She moved to New Orleans to attend high school and finished both the College Preparatory and Normal Departments of Straight College (now Dillard University) in 1904. In 1920, she received two baccalaureate degrees from Michigan State Normal College at Ypsilanti (now Eastern Michigan University) in Pedagogy and a Master of Arts degree from Michigan University at Ann Arbor in 1938. Later, she pursued further study at Ohio State and Columbia Universities.
