What a fantastic school!!! Franklin Elementary has fabulous staff, teachers and facilities. Our son attended Franklin from 2000-2003 and had exceptional teachers. We have lived all over the country and chose to move back to Pullman so our daughter could attend Franklin the past three years. The principal, Mr. Moore, is a kind man who cares about each student and parent. Our daughter is a very shy 3rd grader who has blossomed while attending Franklin elementary school. Her teachers have met and exceeded my expectations and we are sad to leave this special school. You will love it!!

Every teacher and the principal, Mr. Moore, has gone above and beyond whats expected, even the front secretary! They know all the kids and parents by name, which makes you feel like they have an individual concern for each child. Three of my boys have gone through this school and they loved it and we wish that we could have continued on here. Franklin has an awesome math and reading program, which helped my son get back on track. We loved everything about this school!

Franklin school was one of the best experiences my family has had during our years in Pullman. Such a devotion to students and their parents, friendly atmosphere and very high level of education - I am strongly recomending this beautifull school and its stuff to everyone. They have great ESL program, they recognize student's individual abilities and they work hard and consistent on developing them. The student-teacher ratio is better than average, thanks also to parents who spend their time daily helping in the classrooms.

I am impressed that this school acomidates all special needs programs. I was blown away by their special education teacher. She was wonderful, kind and made me seriously consider Franklin School as a possibility for education. Their advice and extraordinary ability to teach sets them apart from all other schools. Well done Franklin!

I have, on several occasions, experienced above and beyond services from many faculty and staff members of this school. I am also very impressed with the faculty and staffs ability to reconize not only children, but parents and refer to them by name! My son loves this school, and felt right at home after a few short days! The activities and chances for you to be involved with your child are wonderful (not to mention fun)! I thank the faculty and staff for doing their job wonderfully!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
