Program Overview
Wonders Extended Day at School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens
School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens provides every student with a rigorous student-centered academic program led by nurturing educators who empower students to be risk-takers and critical thinkers in order to become productive and global citizens. Their mission is to make SWWFS a diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning environment that promotes integrity, respect, intellectual curiosity and global citizenship with the purpose of inspiring students to excel both academically and socially.
Extended Day teachers and children enjoy afternoons of indoor and outdoor active games that allow them to develop skills and practice teamwork, making music together, and experimenting with art and science. Time is set aside each day for homework and a healthy snack.
The primary goal of our school-age program is to create communities for children and their families that are fun, nurturing, and enriching. Children are active learners.

Wonders Extended Day at Francis-Stevens provides an environment where children can safely grow through self-guided and structured play. In addition to fostering imagination, play challenges children to expand social, emotional, and intellectual tools. School-age teachers carefully plan the program to balance homework with exercise and promote healthy eating habits.
