Our School's Mission Statement
(Developed by Students)

We, at Franklin School, will encourage ourselves to be respectful, honest, responsible throughout life, and help others to do the same.



Franklin Borough School
 

Welcome to Franklin Borough School!  Our school educates students from preschool through eighth grade.  At Franklin we strive to provide the best possible educational experience for all students in a safe and nurturing environment where all students are supported.  This is possible through the efforts of our dedicated faculty and staff, the hard work of our students and the support of our school parents.  I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our school community.  


 

Sincerely, 

Mr. J.R. Giacchi
Superintendent

Philosophy of Education and Mission Statement

 

We believe that the Franklin Borough School staff must know each child, plan an appropriate program for each child, provide a wide variety of experiences to meet his/her needs, reveal and develop his/her gifts, and strengthen his/her self-confidence, and nurture in each child his/her zest for learning.  It is the expectation of this school district that all pupils achieve the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards at all grade levels. 

 

Therefore, it is the mission of this school community to assist each child to the limit of his/her abilities:

 

1.  To think

2.  To use communication skills effectively

3.  To become adept in the skills necessary to solve problems

4.  To make intelligent choices, based on a growing set of moral values

5.  To create and appreciate beauty in music, art, literature, and nature

6.  To be healthy in body and mind, with wholesome feelings towards self and others

7.  To contribute as a citizen, with a sense of loyalty, understanding and interest in his/her own land and the world at large.
