Welcome to Benjamin Franklin High School!
On behalf of the staff at Benjamin Franklin High School, I am happy to welcome you to a new school year! I look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure your children can achieve their highest potential. The previous two years were challenging for everyone, but BFHS persisted and demonstrated notable gains and experienced many celebratory opportunities.
BFHS is a school rich in the tradition of excellence where children are the focus. I am very impressed with the professionalism and dedication of our staff, the parental support and the students' involvement in the many diverse opportunities here. I join in the partnership of all stakeholders involved in working together to ensure that our students experience success each and every day.
Whether it is through focusing on academics, student leadership, extra-curricular activities or volunteering, I challenge you, the students, to make the most of your school experience and to get actively involved in everything our school has to offer.
With each new school year come some changes, with the goal to make Benjamin Franklin High School even better. What will never change, though, is the effort to create a welcoming environment which fosters the educational and social growth of the student body. We will strive to teach and provide students with the knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary to have a successful future. We will encourage and teach curiosity, problem-solving, and help to instill a life-long love of learning. Teaching our students to have a growth mindset and perseverance so they can learn to face challenges with confidence and perseverance.
I look forward to an outstanding year of watching your children flourish. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. My door is always open.
