About Franklin High School

Franklin High School is a large, public urban high school respected for its traditions of student and community involvement and academic preparedness. The student body is a richly diverse balance of ethnicity and culture: 40% Asian descent, 28% African American, 10% Caucasian, 14% Latino, and <1% American Indian.

Franklin students spend their school years learning with and about students of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Thus our graduates, in addition to being high caliber academically, receive another enriching educational experience – that of community – learning to live and get along in a complex urban society.

Well done is better than well said.

~ Benjamin Franklin
