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 530 students in Preschool through 5th grade. Our caring staff members provide a variety of opportunities for students.   Physical education, vocal music, and art complement our academic opportunities for students.  We also offer Reading Recovery, special education, and TAG (Talented and Gifted) services.  A renovation and expansion of our building is happening during the summer of 2014. This major project is creating an even more 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!
