Frederick Douglass Academy Middle School opened its doors in the Fall of 2006, under the direction of Chartering Director, Karen Anderson. Located in one of the most beautiful historical neighborhoods in the West Adams District, our school community has established strong partnerships with UCLA, Iridescent Learning (USC), and the David Lynch Foundation to provide additional academic support to teachers and students. Our mission is simple, “To prepare students to attend & compete at the top colleges & universities in the nation.” Our mission reminds us to discover the gifts and talents of each individual student in our school by integrating Academics, Arts, and Athletics with a rigorous curriculum and expectations that engages students. In addition, our program highlights championship seasons in Girls and Boys Basketball, Track, Flag Football, Archery and Volleyball. We hope to continue another standout season! As well, our FDAMS students have the opportunity to tour colleges and universities both local and statewide. Thank you for choosing Frederick Douglass Academy Middle School – We are the Lions!
