Welcome to Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom PCS
The Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School prepares culturally diverse elementary school students in the District of Columbia to be leaders, scholars and responsible citizens who are committed to social justice.
Stokes teaches children to think, speak, read, write and learn in two languages: English and French or English and Spanish. With a dual focus on academic excellence and community service, the Stokes School accomplishes its mission by creating an environment of achievement, respect and non-violence.
The Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School’s vision is to be recognized, respected, and emulated as a premier model of urban education in the United States.
