Our Vision is that EFC students challenge the predictable patterns of performance and access to opportunity in this country by demonstrating the essential academic competencies, personal agency, and integrated identity necessary to be prepared for a meaningful and productive life.
90% of the children who enroll at EFC qualify for free and reduced lunch; many are academically already behind when they first enter our schools. We therefore focus intensely on accelerating growth to ensure our children are prepared for college, career and life.
Our students currently are making significant growth, at a faster rate than schools in Oakland or the State. We are focused on making steady progress towards our Vision.
