Vision and Mission


We believe that all students deserve equity and access to a curriculum based on the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century skills.



Franklin High School envisions a sustainable educational system that prepares students to address complex future challenges with the knowledge and skills necessary for college and career readiness in the 21st century. Franklin High School will develop students who are active citizens, creative and critical thinkers, and effective communicators.

Upon matriculation, our Franklin High School students will be college and career ready. They will possess socially conscious perspectives and strong morals to contend with our rapidly changing global society. They will be prepared to make positive contributions to their communities. They will exhibit creative and critical thinking through thoughtful explanation, interpretation, application, perspective, empathy and self-knowledge. They will communicate effectively and confidently in collaborating with others. They will explore, define and solve complex problems and apply them to real life situations. Franklin students will be involved with project-based learning that requires them to explore their community and asks students to work collaboratively and hold each other accountable for learning. They will have the technological skills to adapt to a continually changing technological world. The knowledge that they gain at school will prepare our students for the academic rigors of college and the future expectations of employers.

The mission of Benjamin Franklin Senior High School is to educate our diverse student body in a safe, nurturing environment and to promote life-long learning, technology use, responsible citizenship, respect, and success in our rapidly changing global society. (2006)
