Our district is a large area consisting of 562 square miles and Franklin High is within walking distance of Historic Downtown Franklin. The renovated FHS Claude Yates Annex has added 16 additional classrooms to the main building, which opened in 2006.

Franklin High was recently named a Reward School and U.S. News & World Report​’s annual rankings lists the school as the #9 comprehensive high school in Tennessee. Faculty and staff look forward to seeing you in the upcoming school year, sharing our long-held traditions and creating new traditions to continue over our next 100 years.

Anchored in Tradition

In 1910, Franklin High School opened its doors to the students of Williamson County with two teachers and twenty students. Over 110 years later, Franklin has grown to almost 1,800 students and over 100 faculty and staff. We celebrate our past as the Pioneers and the Rebels as we begin a new era as the Admirals. Franklin High takes great pride in the tradition of excellence that began in 1910 and continues today in all of the Academic, Arts and Athletic programs.
