it's a language-immersion Pre-K to 6th-grade school where the children study ALL subjects in both English and either Spanish or French. Seeing my 4-year-old learn to not only speak but begin to think and respond in Spanish has been amazing to me. The teachers at the school are just phenomenal - there's 2 teachers in each classroom, one who focused on English and the other on the target language, and they are some of the most loving, caring, and dedicated folks I've ever seen. The school motto is 'I will take care of myself, of my friends, and of my community,'
I love Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom PCS because is a multicultural lerning enviroment for children and teachers to grow.
My daughter loves kindergarten and she's soaking up Spanish like a sponge. The teachers and other parents are very committed to the education of the kids.
It answers the question of how can the US school system revolutionize education delivery to produce competent, compassionate, and contributing citizens who are interested in the world. My husband and I love it, but more importantly, my son loves to learn in this vibrant academic community.
Elsie Whitlow Stokes is a great community school. Everyone, including the students and faculty, are very comfortable around each other and are always in high spirits.
Its international, multi-cultural, cross-class mutually respectful and creative community
I love Elsie Whitlow PCS because my children are receiving a top notch bilingual education where the faculty and staff really care about my kids educational needs and goals.
As an educator, myself, I have become quite familiar with best practices within a variety of educational settings as it relates to how our children learn most effectively. I can honestly say that EWS has done an outstanding job with combining the latest trends in best practices with providing a nurturing environment for our children to continue to develop, be challenged and reach their highest potential. Their community involvement is phenomenal no matter how you you look at; however, their efforts do not always receive the attention it deserves. Its everyday environment is rich in culturally and academically enhancing opportunities that all the children and their families benefit from. My daughter has a huges smile on her face everyday I pick her up from school, which is accompanied by a new adventure that really made her day. It has been truly a delight and privilege to be apart of the EWS family.
What better place can the family attend a Casino Night to learn fun ways to teach math; share with foods and stories different cultures, nationalities and religions; AND of course have amazing teachers hone your children? No place but Elsie Whitlow Stokes Freedom Community Charter School. Me and my kids love this place and they have become our family over the past three years. The location, the mission and the family atmosphere makes this America's Favorite School!

My school is the perfect place to learn and discover. The staff memebers here at Stokes care about the students. Besides our school provides such an environment for parents that they feel at home.

At ews public charter school, teaching and learning process is integral. My son understands and values self respect, others and the community. It is a place am proud to call Obi's school.
Stokes is a wonderful school that excels with distinction when it comes to educating the whole child. As a new parent to the school, I've grown to love the community parents available to chat with after school. And, i absolutely love the international feel and flair from which everything is done. I can't say enough.
I LOVE EW Stokes Community Freedom PCS because they are student oriented. The teachers and staff are there because they care about laying the foundation to establishing young people that will care about there community and aspire to contribute to a healthy society. The impact they have on the children that attend will be felt for generations. My son loves school. He is excelling by leaps and bounds. He has the freedom to be himself. They have the patience to allow him to be himself. There process is smooth. Even when they coach the students it only endears them. There educational plan is fantastic. Not only are they learning a foreign language they are also learning culture, acceptance of differences, to look beyond themselves, to realize that there is a lot more to this world than what they see in their neighborhoods. With the compassion they show it encourages my child to have confidence in himself. He is not afraid to step out of his normal and tackle new obsticles. Stokes is not just a school, they are a village. I really appreciate that. It still takes a village to raise a child.
