Ben Franklin Elementary School

Empowering Academic Achievers and Lifelong Learners

  • Attention Elementary School Parents, Guardians, and Staff,

    The Harrisburg School District is in the planning stage of relocating fifth grade to our elementary schools for the 2022-23 school year. Currently, our elementaries are kindergarten through fourth grade, and our middle schools are grades five through eight. We believe relocating fifth grade to our elementaries will help us to increase academic and other supports to our fifth graders and provide a stronger educational experience. All fourth grade students will remain at their current elementary school for fifth grade. Students will not transfer to another elementary school for fifth grade unless they apply to Marshall Math Science Academy, which involves a specialized curriculum. Additional information will be shared at the April Board and Receiver's Business Meeting.


    Mr. Eric Turman, Superintendent
