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.
