From the Ground Up: We Are Growing Our School!
From our start, we have worked to create a school that feels welcoming, where our students, staff, and families know they are safe and valued. Our physical space has presented many challenges to our goal! We are so excited how a physical school building that will reflect and enhance the welcoming culture and community that is at the core of Franklin.
We moved into the first phase of our permanent home in August, 2019. This beautiful new building includes 6 regular classrooms, 2 science labs, an art room, a music room, offices, a welcoming reception area, and a large multipurpose “community” room that serves as a gathering and performance space.
In January 2022, we launched construction on the next phase of construction. Up first is completion of the 2nd floor of our existing building. This project will be completed in July 2022, and will allow us to move all high school classes into our new building. We will add 9 additional classrooms, two more science labs, a second art room, and additional offices and collaboration spaces for students. We will then build our school gymnasium with a full-size basketball court, locker rooms, and bleachers. The final phase will include a second classroom wing, allowing us to move all of our classrooms into our new and permanent building. We are currently working with our construction team to finalize the building plans for the gymnasium and final classroom wing – stay tuned for exciting updates on our progress!
