Paul Cuffee School, a K-12 public charter school of choice, educates a diverse community of students from Providence, Rhode Island. We respect each individual and the world we share. This quality of our community is central to our mission.
In the spirit of Paul Cuffee’s life, we teach students to value and practice personal initiative, perseverance, and social responsibility. Our School accomplishes these goals through a rigorous academic program which, enriched with maritime experiences, fosters discovery and critical thinking. We prepare students for higher education, lifelong learning, and active citizenship.
The mission of the Paul Cuffee School Libraries is to provide materials and access to materials for educational and personal growth and enjoyment that reflect and support the mission of the School. We adhere to the American Association of School Librarians Standards for instruction in grades K-5 and the Intellectual Freedom Tenets of the Freedom to Read statement as published by the American Library Association.
