FPHE Business Partner Program: We believe that strong schools have a direct impact on the overall health of a community, including their businesses. Communities focused on education have a vibrant commerce, higher home values and lower crime rates. A city with highly performing schools attracts and keeps families who are vital not only to our community, but to a healthy business climate.
