The mission of the Farmington Public Schools is best captured in this statement:
Students will effectively learn academic content, demonstrate skills and achievement at high levels, and develop their individual talents and interests in an atmosphere that promotes cooperation, respect and lifelong learning.
The impact of this mission or belief set is as clear in kindergarten as it is in the 12th grade. Indeed, it extends to the needs of some children for early childhood intervention to enhance their opportunities for learning once they reach kindergarten and to our adult population served with our extensive continuing education program.
