Mission Statement
The O'Farrell Charter School is a community-oriented institution dedicated to fostering high academic standards, ensuring emotional and social growth, and maintaining a safe and secure learning environment for all its students.

The O'Farrell Charter School's academic and extracurricular programs draw on the sustained efforts of motivated students, a talented and well-prepared faculty, and the ongoing commitment of supportive parents or guardians - all committed to the Falcon Way - such that all students are empowered to become critical learners and thinkers, and responsible, contributing citizens.

The O'Farrell Charter School provides a multi-cultural, linguistically and racially diverse learning environment in which students experience educational equity and are encouraged to celebrate their own individuality.  All students, upon graduation, are expected to have acquired the fundamental tools and skills to move seamlessly onto the high school of their choice.
