New student registration will be held on Tuesday, August 11, from 8am - 3pm. The following documents are required: birth certificate, immunization record, social security card, notarized proof of residency form (must include a bill, lease or driver's license with your physical address on it. PO BOX not acceptable).
In efforts to increase safety and prevention in athletics, FISD is requiring ANNUAL physicals for all student-athletes. Annual screening of athletes is imperative because medical conditions can change from year to year and the development of subtle issues may be overlooked. The pre-participation exam is designed to help identify athletes that may be at risk for medical issues before he or she participates in a sport.
Physical can be obtained by your primary physician or orthopedic doctor. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Marissa Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org or 979.255.5409.

The Franklin High School Band closed a great show featuring the choir and bands of Franklin ISD on Tuesday, May 21. The Franklin Ranch Amphitheater was the scene of a fantastic musical extravaganza to close the performing season for FISD bands and choir. A standing-room-only crowd was treated to music ranging from The Farmer in the Dell to Frozen's hit, Let It Go. A great job by the student performers, their directors, and the support staff.
An article from The Eagle newspaper recently reported that three Brazos Valley schools have made U.S. News and World Report's list of best high schools. The magazine reviewed data on more than 19,400 U.S. public high schools to compile the list. A&M Consolidated High School was 114 on the state list (1,096 nationally), and Bryan Collegiate High School came it at 134 in the state (1,370 nationally). Franklin High School was ranked 185 in Texas and 1,966 nationally.
The rankings were based on student-teacher ratios, schools' performance on state assessment tests and how well they prepare students for college. The School for the Talented and Gifted in Dallas was the top-ranked school in the country; the Dallas school district's School of Science and Engineering Magnet was eighth in the country. There were no other Texas schools in the top 10.
