Our four outstanding schools - North, Pietrini, Passow, and Hester - reflect the values and beliefs of the Franklin Park community that are outlined in this mission statement. They are staffed by excellent teaching and support personnel who, on a daily basis, apply their creative talents to ensure all of our students, regardless of circumstance, are appropriately challenged, supported, and motivated to achieve academic success. Through the lifelong application of the academic, technological, and social skills obtained throughout the course of their experience in District 84, our students will be more than prepared for a successful and productive future-whether that includes college, a career, or both. We are grateful for the parents and community partners who assist us with this mission every single day.
It is my pleasure to work closely with our students, teachers, parents, and community-at-large to uphold the mission of School District 84 and provide a productive and rewarding educational experience for all the students we have the privilege to serve.
