Frederick Douglass Academy Elementary School was started in August, 2008 on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and 2nd Ave. in South Los Angeles. We moved to a new and bigger location at 2400 S. Western Avenue in August, 2010. We currently have 11 teachers, 3 teacher's aides, dean of students, office manager, parent liaison, a resource specialist teacher, and wonderful music, dance, and art programs.
We are a public charter school under the Inner City Education Foundation. In the 2008-2009 school year, we opened with 100 students in Kindergarten, and 1st grade. We were also fortunate to have one class of Developmental Kindergarten that gives those students who need an extra year of Kindergarten that opportunity.
