Discover Franklin

8th Grade Students and Families…
Come Discover Franklin High School at the Marshall Campus


If your student is a current 8th grader and will attend Franklin High School starting September, 2015, join us on Thursday, December 4, 2014 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Marshall Campus located at 3905 S.E. 91st Ave. Franklin students will attend the Marshall Campus while Franklin undergoes modernization starting next fall.

At this annual event incoming Franklin freshmen and their families will learn about Franklin’s nationally-recognized Advanced Scholar Program, Advanced Placement options and our dual-credit program (where students earn college credit); talk with teachers from all disciplines; meet with current coaches and players from a variety of athletic teams; and see the wide array of clubs available to students. Franklin High will be modernized during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years.

This is your opportunity to see the Marshall Campus that will serve as Franklin High School’s home until the fully modernized school reopens in the fall of 2017.  More extensive tours of the Marshall Campus will be held this spring. In addition to learning about what makes Franklin so unique, people can view a sneak peak video of what the newly modernized Franklin will look like when it opens in September, 2017. 

Freshmen starting at Franklin next fall will spend their first two years at the Marshall campus then attend the newly modernized Franklin High School for their junior and senior years.
