Mission Statement


Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School’s mission is to provide an environment that enables all students to grow academically, intellectually, socially, emotionally, culturally, and, most importantly, acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to become college and career ready.  Teachers from our school will strive to help our students work to their fullest potential and meet academic excellence.


Vision Statement


Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School’s vision is to offer a wide variety of rigorous coursework that will nurture student success within a large comprehensive high school.  The FDR school community will address the needs of the whole student.  This will be achieved by addressing the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of our diverse community of learners.  In an effort to prepare all students for college and career pathways, and to provide real life application of learned academic concepts and skills, FDR will be a place where a cohesive and collaborative community develops instructional strategies, curricula, and authentic assessments that meet the needs, interests, strengths, and abilities of all learners. 


Instructional Focus


Quality instruction in FDR classrooms is grounded in the belief that students learn best when provided differentiated opportunities and experiences based on continuous assessment which impacts instructional planning and shifts, so they may improve their understanding of their coursework and its relevance in the real world.
