    Hello I am a parent of a former student and one currently enrolled at Franklin Elementary School. My oldest son attended Franklin for his fifth academic year and this will be my youngest child's second year attending this school. Prior to my children attending Franklin Elementary I did not know what to expect and my children were a little nervous as well. Their experience at Franklin has been positive. They were able to quickly adapt in this school because of the genuinely caring environment that Franklin provided. My children became confident motivated and enjoyed attending school. It is just the boost that the oldest child needed to accompany him to Middle School. All of the faculty at this school show their concern for each and every child and they encourage parent involvement. I am very pleased with the friendly family atmosphere and the education my child receives at Franklin Elementary School.
