Vision Statement

Academic excellence is a priority of the Fall River Public Schools. All students are challenged and supported to meet and exceed the rigorous Massachusetts State Standards. We are responsible for ensuring that all students become literate thinkers and problem solvers with an enthusiasm for lifelong learning. Children are nurtured as individuals with social, emotional, physical and academic needs.

Learning is not limited to the boundaries of the classroom. We provide opportunities for children to explore their interests,broaden their horizons, and develop their talents and creativity. We respect, value, and celebrate diverse traditions, beliefs, and languages. Each person is an individual of great worth. Collaboration among staff, parents, and community members maximizes the resources and support available to our students. Our school community shares responsibility for student success. Communication is key. We believe that everyone should be respected and that all voices should be heard.

As a school family, we strive to provide a safe, supportive, and stimulating learning environment. We model and expect responsible, respectful behavior, and students are held accountable for their choices
