The Franklin Special School District’s vision of Excellence in Teaching and Learning for All is the basis of all instructional programming. Because the FSSD is committed to a deliberate focus toward individualized and personalized instructional experiences, the district offers an Honors Program for qualifying students in grades 5-8. By the time students enter the fifth grade, some have reached a level of academic proficiency which enables them to participate in a learning environment which delivers faster-paced curriculum, more rigorous and complex instruction that emphasizes more in-depth study, analytical thinking, and creative problem solving.
The FSSD will host an Honors Program Parent Information meeting at Freedom Intermediate School January 12, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. This meeting is open to families of current 4th grade students (rising 5th graders) and presenters will address issues such as eligibility criteria, the registration process, testing dates, and qualification notification.
