Message from the Principal

Welcome to Franklin Middle School

Home of the Franklin Quakers

Each day hums with activity as 825 students and staff converge within the halls of Franklin Middle School. Sitting on the southeast corner of picturesque Franklin Park in the heart of Yakima, we are proud that our school population truly reflects the diverse cultural nature of our valley. Our varied curriculum offers an opportunity for all students to excel. Our motto is "Respect and Achievement" for all students.

Our major focus is on reading, writing and mathematics. Other goals include creating a safe and positive atmosphere for all students, increasing parent involvement and communication and focusing on programs for at-risk students.

Thank you for supporting your child and the Franklin staff. We are looking forward to teaming with you as we all guide your student through this next phase of their education.

William N. Hilton Jr.
