  • PSAT

    PSAT News


    All 10th graders will be taking the PSAT on October 13th for FREE at FHS.  There is no need to sign up because it is required for sophomores and we are already planning for you to take it.  The PSAT is a practice version of the SAT, a college entrance exam used by some schools.  If you would like to do some test prep for the PSAT here is a link https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-nmsqt-student-guide.pdf and there are also booklets that you can pick up near the main entrance desk or outside the counseling office if you prefer a paper version.

    Contact Alice Headley, Testing Coordinator, with questions at aheadley@pps.net.


    11th graders

    Due to last school year being online, our current juniors didn't get the opportunity to take the PSAT.  This year all juniors are welcome to sign up for the Oct 2021 PSAT at FHS for FREE.  Please complete this form if you are a junior who would like to sign up for the PSAT.   (Juniors will all take the SAT in APRIL as usual).  Taking the PSAT as a junior is practice for the SAT and also the only way to be considered for the National Merit Scholarship if your score qualifies you.


    Here is a link to sign up for the Junior PSAT sign ups https://forms.gle/5KfsUqq8u5nS9Qw79

    Students must be using their PPS email to submit the form. The deadline to sign up for the PSAT is Monday, September 20th. Contact Alice Headley, Testing Coordinator, with questions at aheadley@pps.net.

    Covid Vaccine information for high school students: On August 31, Governor Brown issued an Executive Order that requires all K-12 employees and volunteers to be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. Since student leaders will be volunteering outside of their school community, they will also need to be fully vaccinated along with all of our Outdoor School staff.

Principal's Message

  • Franklin

    Dear Franklin Families and Students:  

    I would like to thank the Franklin community for such an amazing year.  We recognize what we faced as a community starting a school year in CDL and the anticipated struggles associated with online learning.  We understand how this model challenged our staff and students as we’ve grown accustomed to and lean on our beliefs of maximizing engagement, maximizing relationships, and maximizing evidence of student ability.  I am grateful and impressed by the persistence of this community.  You were innovative and did not allow distance learning to separate us, but rather found new ways to draw us closer together.  While there were some low moments this year as we were physically apart,  grieved the loss of former students, became frustrated by new technology and following what felt like an ever changing schedule; we also have so much to celebrate as students were able to physically come back to school, athletic contests resumed,  extracurricular opportunities opened, new friendships were formed, and this past Tuesday we were able to celebrate the graduation of the Class of 2021.

    I wish each and everyone of you a safe and enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing everyone this fall.

    Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier
