Our School

The Senator Frank R. Lautenberg School (SFLS) sits at the center of the 4th Ward of Paterson, NJ, just 20 miles west of New York City.  Historically SFLS (formerly known as School 6) has endured many challenges requiring special attention to our students and families.  Therefore, we have become a full-service community school that serves to meet the unique needs of our families.

At SFLS we embrace the Paterson Public Schools district mission of recognizing proud traditions, a diverse community, and partnerships, by providing an academically rigorous, safe and nurturing educational environment by meeting the social, emotional and academic needs for our students.
