Principal’s Message


Welcome to Franklin Magnet School, home of the Proud Owls!  Franklin is an extremely unique and special school that offers four different dual language programs (French, German, Italian, and Spanish).  As our mission statement communicates, we provide a rigorous and relevant multilingual/multicultural curriculum that prepares students with a strong foundation for future learning and 21st century career readiness.

Students have the opportunity to become academically and socially well-rounded individuals.  The Franklin staff is highly dedicated to student success and has high expectations for student achievement and conduct. We will guide students to develop their capabilities and will hold them accountable for their behavior through our Be SMART Positive Discipline initiative.  SMART stands for . . .

Solve Problems
Make Good Decisions
Act Responsibly
Respect Yourself, Others, and the World Around You
Take a Second; Make a Difference

Students thrive through the partnership between educators, students, families, and community members.  I am overwhelmed by the amount of support and pride I see from our outstanding school community. There are numerous ways to be involved at Franklin from volunteering and donations to supporting school attendance, timeliness, and academic practice.  Thank you for your support in helping us to give your children an exceptional educational experience.
