Hamza Abdelhadi
Franklin School Principal
Czar Wiley
Franklin School Vice Principal
Hello Everyone!
My name is Hamza Abdelhadi and I am the principal here at Franklin School.
      I have been an educator in North Bergen for 16 years now.  I began my career as a physical education teacher at Lincoln School before transitioning to the high school after 1 year. I coached football and basketball for 12 years as a way to connect with my community and be apart of school activities. After 9 years, I decided that I could better serve the students as an administrator.  Although I enjoyed that job immensely, I wanted to challenge myself and continue to grow as a person and as a professional. I encourage students to always challenge themselves and with that, I wanted to practice what I preach by reconnecting with students in a way I never knew could be so satisfying.
      Please know that my number one priority is your child's educational journey.  I try to create an environment that is fun for your child, with an emphasis on the importance of education.  Our school is a safe place and a community for your child to grow and be successful in his/her future endeavors.
     If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me at anytime.  I maintain an open door policy for everyone.  We here at Franklin are family!
