Our Mission and Vision...and how we make it happen!

Mission Statement

 

Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School’s mission is to provide an environment that enables all students to grow academically, intellectually, socially and emotionally. We recognize the importance of celebrating diversity and culture in our community. Our focus is on personalizing our environment; students start in different places.  By developing a growth mindset, we help them activate their passion and persistence, so all students can reach their highest potential.

The FDR community works together so our students acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to be lifelong learners.  Our students will become college and career ready and are prepared for the emerging demands as global citizens of the technologically evolving 21st Century.  We focus on homecoming and return from the pandemic, as we rejoin, relearn and move forward.
