CEO Message

Dear Benjamin Franklin Families,

I welcome our returning families as well as those who are new to the BFE family to the 2023-2024 school year! This is our sixth year as a charter school under the Legacy of Excellence Board. We are reshaping our culture and focusing on our vision to accelerate the learning of all students through data driven inquiry, reflective teaching and powerful learning. With your active support of our school, we can make that vision a reality.

The theme for this year is “Structuring Opportunities for Academic Rigor (SOAR).” This theme will help us close the achievement gap and get us in tune with reshaping our culture. We continue on our path to excellence. We hope that you will connect with us on many levels to further the education of your child and the betterment of our school.

Thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education,

J. Cornell Brooks, Ed.D.
Chief Executive Officer​
