Welcome to the Ben Franklin Junior High School website - Thanks for visiting the online home of the Chargers!


    Junior High is such an important time for kids as they transition from the strong foundation of elementary school and start to think about their own interests and plans for their future. School changes to a place where they begin to make their own choices and pursue their goals and interests. I'm excited to support a student-centered community at Ben Franklin with a staff that is committed to the growth of every child with engaging classes and high expectations.

    Ben Franklin Junior High offers a wide range of extracurricular activities and elective class offerings. Students have the opportunity to explore different areas and discover their strengths and interests.  

    I welcome parent communication, dialogue, and participation. Parents can connect with me about any questions, concerns, or suggestions, and to offer to volunteer or help at school. The diversity of our families and your expertise and experiences in so many different things is a huge gift to the Ben Franklin community!

    It’s a good day to be a Charger!
