Welcome to Benjamin Franklin

At Benjamin Franklin School we value our tradition of excellence. Our goal is to develop and shape our students into passionate, confident, life long learners who have competence and strength of character. We want them to realize their aspirations and be prepared to contribute to a diverse and ever changing world.
The scope and magnitude of our responsibilities to our students, their parents, and the community, are infinite. Our words, actions and inactions have a profound impact on the lives we are responsible for. It is, therefore, that we offer nothing less than our best every day to succeed in providing everything we can in “making a difference”.
At Ben Franklin, students are taught that "Ability can take you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there!” Our ability to work together will make a difference in the lives of our children.
