Strategic Priorities

We are committed to supporting students, families and staff by dismantling racism and other systems of oppression and inequity. We empower each individual for success by valuing race, environment, culture, ability, gender identity and sexual orientation.

We believe that all families want their children to succeed and represent the most valuable asset in supporting students’ educational experience. We rely on community resources beyond the scope of schools to help students thrive academically, socially, physically and emotionally.

We are committed to engaging all students in rigorous, relevant, high quality work.  We see students in their entirety, recognizing that each student approaches their learning with a broad range of strengths and needs, that trusting relationships create conditions for learning, and that quality instruction helps to move them toward understanding, growth and achievement.

Franklin Pierce School District was established in 1949 and has a history of forward thinking that ensures student success is our #1 priority. Our 1,000 employees proudly serve nearly 8,000 students from preschool to grade 12 in a variety of settings including an early learning center, eight elementaries, two middle schools, two traditional high schools, and one alternative high school. Over 65 of our teachers are National Board Certified, 65 percent of our teachers hold a master’s degree of higher, and two of our principals were recently recognized as principals of the year.
