Energy and persistence conquer all things. Genius without education is like silver in the mine.

— Benjamin Franklin

Welcome to Franklin Elementary

Our school, located at 3130 Avenue C, serves more than 350 students in Preschool through 5th grade.  We have over 45 licensed and classified staff members who provide a variety of opportunities for students.  Franklin offers three sections of each grade level, except for 5th grade where we have 2 classrooms.   We have 2 Preschool classrooms serving 4 year olds and one classroom serving 3 and 4 year olds.  Physical education, vocal music, and art compliment our academic opportunities for students.  We also offer Reading Recovery, special education, and TAG (Talented and Gifted) services.  A complete remodeling of our building was completed in 1998.  This major project resulted in a wonderful facility where learning and student achievement is our major focus.  Please feel free to visit our school and your child’s classroom whenever possible.  We’d be happy to have you!
