PFFS telescope and girlCITY Center for Collaborative Learning operates three small secondary schools in the downtown/university area of Tucson, Arizona. The schools’ teachers and leaders work together daily – in collaboration with our 335 students and their families – to design and implement the innovative and exemplary practices that we hold dear.

  • The Paulo Freire Freedom Schools, at two locations, serve a total of 150 middle school students in grades 6-8.
  • City High School has 185 students in grades 9-12.

As part of our project based learning curriculum and commitment to creating real world connections for kids,  we view our downtown and university neighborhoods – and all of Tucson and Southern Arizona – as our larger learning environment.
