The mission of Benjamin Franklin Elementary is to foster the creative minds, healthy bodies, and ethical spirits needed to contribute wisdom, compassion and leadership to society. Our academic program is rigorous and constantly evolving; we lead students to be flexible and take responsibility for learning and good choices.  Franklin Flyers are respectful; they resolve conflicts honestly and fairly, right their wrongs, and celebrate learning each day.
