The mission of Benjamin Franklin Elementary is to foster the creative minds, healthy bodies, and ethical spirits needed to contribute wisdom, compassion and leadership to society. Our academic program is rigorous and constantly evolving; we lead students to be flexible and take responsibility for learning and good choices.  Franklin Flyers are respectful; they resolve conflicts honestly and fairly, right their wrongs, and celebrate learning each day.
Core Knowledge
Are you interested in learning what the Core Knowledge Academic program at Benjamin Franklin Elementary could offer your child?  You are invited to attend an information meeting to learn more about  Core Knowledge, and what it would mean for Franklin to become an RUSD specialty (magnet) school. We look forward to seeing you at 6:30 in the MPR!
Working with Teacher
Don't miss this informative workshop on 
effective communication strategies with your child's teacher! 

All RUSD schools have an assigned Student Assistance Program (SAP) Counselor. These are licensed clinicians who provide a variety of services in our schools including individual and group counseling, social skills groups, and classroom presentations. Students are referred to the counselors by staff members, parents, and other concerned people. Students may also refer themselves to the counselors. Upon receipt of the referral, the SAP Counselor will connect the parent/guardian to schedule a Family Interview. For questions about SAP Counseling at Franklin, please call Kariann Herrera at (951) 571-6502 x 41213 or Katarina Roy Schanz, SAP Coordinator at (951) 352-1200 x83013.
