About the Provider

Description: East Franklin Elementary School was built during 1951 and 1952, consolidating four small community schools. The building originally had ten classrooms, a lunchroom, auditorium and administrative office space. In 1956, four more classrooms were added to the East end of the building. This addition provided a library and expanded the dining space. In 1969, ten new classrooms and a new Media Center were added to the West end of the original building. This addition resulted from the consolidation of East Franklin Elementary School and Franklin Elementary School.

A bond referemdum in 1981 resulted in major renovations costing approximately one half million dollars. Renovations happened again in 2001. The construction was completed in January 2002.

Renovation to the existing building began in November 2007. The renovation plan involved remodeling all classrooms and work areas within the existing building. The office area received only cosmetic improvements. The gym was converted into three new classrooms. All work was completed by August 2008 still leaving 9 portable classrooms behind the school.

Construction of a new addition began July 2008 and completed September 2009. The new addition included a new gym with a stage, three kindergarten classrooms with activ boards and a workroom. No more portable classrooms!

We are currently developing a new playground area and other outside resources.

Presently, East Franklin Elementary School serves Kindergarten through Fourth grades with an enrollment of 450 students. We were a School of Distinction from 1998-2005. There are thirty three certified teachers, fourteen teacher assistants, one secreatry, one bookkeeper, one data manager, six cafeteria staff, three bus drivers and three custodians assigned to our school.

We are proud of our diverse school where everyone is a team player. East Franklin Elementary is a place where everyone is an unique individual with high self expectations.
