Welcome to Franklin Elementary

Franklin Elementary School is committed to developing respectful, responsible and productive citizens who will meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Franklin Elementary School is located in the northwest area of Baltimore County in the center of historic Reisterstown. Franklin Elementary opened its doors to students in September 1955 and has remained a stable school community over the years.


Many students who attend Franklin Elementary have parents who graduated from the school.  Our dedicated and talented faculty and staff are tireless in pursuing the Vision of the Baltimore County Public School System.


Our PTA is run by parents who support the school and their children with endless enthusiasm and energy. Franklin Elementary School has great traditions and values its reputation as the “Franklin Family”.  Check out the PTA page under the parents tab!  Look for the kindergarten meet and greet events!

Justin Berk's science talk and the Wind For Change wind speed contest work together to fundraise for an amazing local charity: The Cool Kids Campaign. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for pediatric oncology patients and their families by focusing on the academic, social and emotional needs brought on by a cancer diagnosis. Cool Kids Campaign offers programs completely free at their Learning Center such as personalized tutoring, ‘Mommy & Me’ guided playtime, ‘Teens.CanSur.vive’ teen support group, and even a support group for the siblings of kids with cancer called ‘Team Sibs.’ Cool Kids Campaign also sends care packages nationwide to kids with cancer when they are first diagnosed in hopes to brighten their day. 100% of the funds raised through Wind For Change go directlyto these programs.
