Office of the Superintendent


Dear Franklin Regional School District community,

Many exciting things are happening within our schools. Our district has been bustling with activity, and we are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of our students, teachers, and staff.

First and foremost, our academic achievements continue to soar. Our students consistently perform at the highest levels and receive countless local, state, and national accolades.  As a school system, we are highly rated by various publications and websites due to our performance on standardized assessments.  We are proud that the Pennsylvania Department of Education designated us as a High Performing School District.

But it's not just our test scores that make us proud. Our students excel in other areas, such as the arts and athletics. Our music programs consistently win awards, and our athletes continuously set records and bring home championship titles.

Our many extracurricular activities reflect our commitment to providing a well-rounded education. Our clubs and organizations provide students with opportunities to explore their interests and develop new skills.

We are also proud of our efforts to create a safe and welcoming environment for all students. Our district has implemented several initiatives to support our students' mental and physical health, and we have seen positive results in student engagement and achievement.

Finally, I want to express my appreciation for our teachers and staff's hard work and dedication. Their commitment to our students is unparalleled, and their efforts make our district such a special place.

Thank you for your continued support of the Franklin Regional School District. We look forward to continuing to work together to ensure that our students have the best possible education.
