Message from the Principal

Franklin is nestled in a beautiful neighborhood at 2212 North Jarchow Street in Appleton, Wisconsin. Currently, we offer programming to over 300 students in early childhood and kindergarten through sixth grade. 
At Franklin, you will feel the strong sense of community and observe our commitment and dedication to meeting the needs of all students. We provide a joyful and engaging educational environment, nurturing students to become lifelong learners and citizens with integrity.

At Franklin, we offer numerous opportunities for participation and involvement, because we value the school-family partnership. We are fortunate to have strong community support and families who are invested in their child’s education. In addition, there are a variety of co-curricular opportunities that complement the excellent academic program at Franklin, enhancing student-learning experiences before, during, and after the school day.  
Please contact me to set up a tour by phone (920) 852-5475 or by email. I look forward to telling you more about the wonderful services and activities available here, at Franklin Elementary, your school of choice.
