Furley Elementary School develops lifelong learners and problem solvers with the skills to become productive citizens and future leaders. As part of our positive environment, we welcome parents/guardians, family members, and all community stakeholders in supporting our students to become college and career ready, equipped with problem-solving strategies and skills that will prepare them to compete in a global society. Working together as a team, we hold high expectations for all members of our school community to contribute to creating a school climate that is safe, orderly, and inviting, where students will flourish and achieve success. The Board of School Commissioners voted on January 11, 2022, to amend Exhibit 6 of the 21st Century Buildings Plan to extend the length of time the schools housed in the Thurgood Marshall Building remain in the building through the 2024-25 school year.
