Greetings SWW@ Francis-Stevens Community,

Welcome to SY 2022-2023! We are excited to welcome everyone back to school for in-person instruction at our “new” transitional swing space located at the former Banneker Senior High School, 800 Euclid Street, NW. We know this will be a spectacular school year, unlike any other, as we plan to ensure that our institutional core belief remains at the forefront of our thinking that “everyone is a learner, and every experience is a learning opportunity.”

This year we will reiterate our commitment to excellence in all that we do, as we seek to provide quality instruction daily, with the expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We will continue to provide equitable opportunities for all students by placing a stronger emphasis on small group instructional practices, addressing academic deficiencies through MTSS data-informed discussions, and remaining grounded in our intentions to dismantle racial inequity embedded in our 5th R core belief.


We also value the communication connection between home and school and encourage you to contact us when the need arises to remain informed about your child's studies, assignments, assessment performance, and school-wide activities and events. For families that are new to SWWFS, we want you to know that you are coming to an amazing institution where students continue to learn and grow.

I am excited about everything this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively to ensure that all students are provided with the best educational experience possible. We are a strong, united community that is willing to go the distance for each other and the students we serve.

Look forward to another incredible year located in our new, institutional space. Welcome to school year 2022-2023! Let’s go Tigers!
