Franklin City Schools dates its history to 1848, with the construction of the Union School on what is now Main Street. 

Today, Franklin City Schools’ mission is to “guarantee all students can grow, develop, and learn to their fullest potential by providing a challenging, individualized curriculum; an exemplary, compassionate staff; and a state-of-the-art, safe and supportive learning environment.”

District enrollment is approximately 3000 students. To enroll a child in the district, please contact the Welcome Center Registration office at 937-743-8602. They are open Monday - Friday from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm and are located at 150 E. Sixth St., Franklin. 

The Board of Education meets twice monthly, with work sessions held on the second Monday and regular meetings held on the fourth Monday. Meetings are generally in the Hampton Bennett Administration building. 

Please visit the district website for the most current district information.
District Facilities

The district operates an Early Childhood Center (preschool), five neighborhood elementary buildings (each serving grades K-6), a junior high school (grades 7 and 8), and a high school (grades 9-12). 
In November 2020, district voters overwhelmingly passed a bond issue that will completely update district facilities. A new high school will be constructed on the site of the current junior high school (the old high school) and Hampton Bennett Early Childhood Center. The anticipated opening date is the fall of 2023. Shortly thereafter, the current high school will be completely renovated into a middle school serving grades 6-8. Three new elementary schools (preschool through grade 5) will be built, replacing the current five.
