The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) recognized our high school as a “School of Promise,” which highlights schools that are making substantial progress to ensure all students achieve at high levels. Battelle for Kids also recognized our district with a “Most Improved Award” because our students made tremendous gains in value-added growth.

Our schools are new or newly renovated with current technology in every building.

Preparing all graduates to be career or college ready, our dedicated staff of highly quali ed teachers and support personnel is committed to provide opportunities to maximize all students’ potentials and to ensure a safe learning environment.

We are a top performing district based on the Ohio Department of Education Report Card.

As an “Excellent” district in 2012, we are pleased with our performance on the new A to F report card. Franklin Local earned A’s and B’s on most measures.
