Welcome to BF Life!
Welcome to the Benjamin Franklin Middle School community where... You are a unique learner capable of academic success, emotional growth, and physical health. You will learn to appreciate the diversity in others, develop new talents, and become life long learners. Your Challenge begins today!
“The Valparaiso middle schools provide a positive, safe, and nurturing environment where students are empowered to take an active role in their own education and to reach their potential. We believe all students… need to be provided a solid academic foundation which includes communication, research, and technology skills… need skills to adapt, compete, and continue learning in an ever-changing society…need to feel valued and respected as individuals with diverse experiences and backgrounds while developing character, citizenship, and responsibility.”
