School Information

Franklin School is the Corvallis School District’s only K-8 school and is also the only non-boundary area school. Our diverse student population reflects the Corvallis community. Franklin students experience the Core Knowledge Curriculum, a sequential and structured curriculum designed to give all children the advantage of a solid foundation in cultural literacy.

  • Enrollment at Franklin is done through a lottery process. Families of all prospective new students must submit a transfer request through the Corvallis School District during the transfer window in the spring (typically March or April.)
  • Families of prospective Kindergarten students need to complete enrollment at their home school in March as well as request a transfer to Franklin. Once the transfer request has been completed your registration information will be obtained from your home school.
  • Families must provide transportation for their student to and from school. After-school busing is available to the Boy’s and Girl’s Club of Corvallis each school day.

We are committed to providing all students with a relevant and challenging education that prepares them to be engaged and contributing citizens. Our motto is What You Do Matters!

We believe:

  • All children can learn.
  • Children learn in a secure, supportive environment.
  • Children can achieve high academic performance.
  • Self-esteem grows when accomplishments are made in a challenging environment.
  • Enthusiasm by students, families, and teachers enhances learning.
  • Family and school are partners in the educational process.
