Principal's Welcome!


Welcome to the Franklin School website.  I hope that you will find it useful in getting to know our school. 

Franklin School is an extraordinary school with a long-standing tradition of excellence. Children are greeted each day by a staff of dedicated and caring teachers, secretaries, custodians and administrators who work together to create a warm and nurturing environment for each and every child.

We are the largest elementary school in Westfield with approximately 640 students in grades one through five.  The Franklin parents are an integral part of the school community.  Thanks to their efforts, our second, third, fourth and fifth grade classrooms are equipped with Smartboards to enhance interactive instruction.  First grade classrooms are now outfitted Eno boards as well.  We believe that today's digital learners must have the tools of the 21st century. 

In educating the whole child, it is our goal to guide youngsters socially and emotionally as well as academically.  We know that lessons of kindness, caring, fairness and integrity take place throughout the school, throughout the day.

Louis Pasteur once wrote, "When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments; tenderness for what he is and respect for what he may become."  It is with tenderness and respect that we welcome all children to Franklin School.
