Help Us Get Funding!

You can now fill out your meal application online!  Remember, please fill out the form whether you qualify or not, as Franklin benefits from every single form submitted.  If we get 100% filled out, we will get the much needed funding for the kids that we missed out on last year because we didn't get enough filled out.  THANKS!  LAUSD Meal Application

Welcome to Franklin Avenue Elementary

Dear Visitors,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Franklin Avenue Elementary school’s website. The faculty and staff join me in welcoming you to our small corner on the World Wide Web. We hope that you will find our website both useful and informative.

Franklin Avenue Elementary is a very diverse community of committed people. Our community includes parents, families, friends, as well as teachers, staff, and students. We work together to lead our students toward becoming disciplined, productive, and fulfilled individuals who apply critical and creative thinking skills in their journey of life-long learning.

Within the walls of our school, we house a diverse mix of cultures and languages. We continually set high standards and expectations for our students. Through the work of a very experienced staff and with the strong support from the parents and community, we continually reach and set new higher goals.

We are a community of learners constantly working towards excellence, and we all strive to make Franklin Avenue the best school for our students. Welcome to our school!
