Frayser Community Schools - Our History

If you stop by one of Frayser Community Schools’ locations, you might find Dr. Bobby White dressed in a t-shirt and jeans, inconspicuously talking to students or helping out during lunch duty. It’s an unconventional role for a charter school CEO, but it’s one he says he prefers the most.


“If I could be in our schools every day, talking to students and parents, I would.” -Dr. Bobby White

This hands-on, intentional approach is what some would say is Frayser Community Schools’ ‘secret sauce’.

White founded the organization in 2014 with the community in mind. This model for operating true neighborhood charter schools has made him a sought-after education professional allowing him and his team to grow Frayser Community Schools from one to three schools in less than five years.
