The Floral Park-Bellerose Union Free School District is committed to fostering a safe learning environment that promotes social-emotional, physical and intellectual growth, where students use their creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills to be successful, kind and compassionate members of a global society. Students will be prepared for their future, while embracing their individuality with an eagerness to face challenges. Through open, on-going communication, we strive to have our parents, teachers and community members actively involved in educating and developing the whole child.
