- Friendship Public Charter School Online is a unique partnership between the Friendship Public Charter School and K12. Our students are proud members of the Friendship family who engage with their education in a virtual environment. Friendship PCS Online offers the award-winning K12 curriculum in an effort to provide our students with current, meaningful, and interactive lessons in reading, language arts, mathematics, history, science, music, and art. Friendship PCS Online even offers World Language courses in five languages, including Spanish, German, French, Latin, and Chinese!
- Our students range from kindergarten to grade 8, and are assisted by highly qualified, motivated teachers both virtually and in person. Our academic leaders and teachers also support parents or other adults in the home as they take on an important role as a student's "learning coach." Although many of the lessons and learning activities occur online and in the home, Friendship Public Charter School Online students are often brought together through face-to-face learning sessions at the Nicholson Street campus. Our students and families are also invited and encouraged to attend a wide variety of fun and educational family outings and field trips each month.
