Mission and Vision

At Dante B. Fascell Elementary School, we begin and end each school day with clear goals in mind. These objectives define our school-wide purpose  and shape the work we do. DBFE is driven by the collaborative efforts of students, staff, parents, and the business community to build a solid foundation that includes the underlying beliefs and values that all children can and will learn, given mutual respect and support.


Our school-wide mission is to brighten the future through the power of knowledge, using a multiple-intelligence approach.


Dante B. Fascell Elementary School will help individuals excel by discovering their full potential, experiencing the lure of the future, and dreaming of and actualizing the possible. The vision will be accomplished by: daring to dream, nurturing the intellect, expressing emotions, raising achievement, sharing responsibility, and fostering the love for reading.
