Where Reading Matters Everyday Everywhere!

Welcome to Francis J. White Learning Center, known affectionately to all who know us simply FJ White. I am so glad you are visiting our website, and I hope it will help you get to know our school.

With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, dedicated teachers, and a rich tapestry of cultures representative of our community, F.J. White is a wonderful place to teach and to learn.  FJ White is committed to academic excellence.

Together with our families and the community, the staff and students of FJ White work toward clearly focused educational, personal, and social goals. Parents are encouraged to become involved in the school. When parents attend school functions, they demonstrate to their children that they value school and education.  Parents can attend events such as Back-to-School Night, Open House, special school events, parent/teacher conferences, serving on committees such as the School Site Council and the English Language Advisory Committee meetings are all important ways that parents learn about what is going on at school.

I am so proud of our students. They work hard. They care for one another. They listen. They play. They learn. They are kind. They want to be here at school.

I am so proud of the FJ White staff. This group of dedicated individuals continually seek to do more. They look for a need and fill it. They inspire our students to want to learn. They believe in our students. They teach and teach again – this time a different way – to ensure that all students learn. Our staff cares about our students. Their safety, their heart, and their triumph matter.

I am thankful for this privilege to lead this school community, to do my part in this amazing environment, to watch these students learn and grow, become skilled, and move onward toward success in life. This is a gift, and I am so grateful.


Nancy R. Stidman, Principal
