School Summary

Franklin Sherman Elementary School is a neighborhood school with historic ties to Fairfax County. Franklin Sherman opened in 1914 as the county's first consolidated school. Nine decades later, our school community is now enriched by a marvelous international population. Built in 1952, the present-day Franklin Sherman Elementary School serves a population of students from preschool through grade 6. An extensive renovation began in January 2008 and upon completion, will include a new media center and administrative wings as well as classrooms equipped with upgraded technological capabilities. Our staff provides a nurturing and safe learning environment, in which students and families enthusiastically contribute to the school's success.

Franklin Sherman emphasizes high academic achievement for all students. A dedicated and enthusiastic PTA works with the faculty to strengthen the instructional program and promote a positive school culture. The diverse cultural and professional resources of the community further enrich the educational program.

At Franklin Sherman Elementary, children are recognized as individuals with diverse backgrounds. Our character education program focuses on respect for individual differences, responsibility for academic and social actions and interactions, and cooperation with one another. We are a community of educators with clear goals for student achievement; we strive to build a strong foundation of knowledge and skills, foster independence and a positive self-image, maximize learning opportunities, and prepare each child for the challenges of the 21st century.
