F. S. Edmonds School

Our Vision

The vision of F.S. Edmonds School is to develop and sustain an academic community in which every stakeholder- teachers, staff, students and their families- consistently model lifelong learning, selflessness, and respect of themselves and others so that our children will become positive, contributing members of society. Our school will promote a positive, safe, and nurturing culture while providing consistent, rigorous academic instruction so that upon leaving the F.S. Edmonds community our students will have the character, knowledge, skills and self- and societal awareness to determine their own personal and professional destiny.

Our Mission

The mission of F.S. Edmonds School is to educate children in a safe, caring, and nurturing environment so that they can excel academically and socially.  We believe all students should be respectful, responsible and safe. We believe that all children are capable of mastering the standards outlined in the PA Common Core.  Students at F.S. Edmonds are viewed as individuals and every effort is made to accommodate each child’s unique talents.  Our mission is to prepare young men and women to live lives that are full within the global community, to embrace and enjoy many cultures and to become proud, productive citizens.

School History

The F. S. Edmonds Elementary School was built in 1948. Our school is named for Dr. Franklin Spencer Edmonds, a distinguished educator and legislator. In 2004, we dedicated the Richard Topolsky Memorial Playground. The playground was a cooperative effort between the school, community and district to provide the neighborhood with a safe play area. Our mascot is the Falcon, a symbol of leadership and strength. Please visit the School Song Page to learn the lyrics of our school song.
