The Folk Arts-Cultural Treasures Charter School comes out of a history of struggle: for equity and justice for Asian American students and immigrant and refugee students of all races; for public investment in the Chinatown community; FACTS will provide an education that has high academic standards, is community based, incorporates and respects the lives of students and families, engages students in understanding their own cultures, and engages students in working for a just society.
