The mission at Franklin-Randall — an energetic, child-centered community of learners — is to embrace the diversity of our school community, assure academic success for all and enable all children to be joyful, lifelong learners who respect themselves and others, and who recognize their responsibilities to the group and to the larger community through:
- An integrated, developmentally-based, multicultural curriculum designed to meet every student’s needs
- A caring, safe, respectful environment
- High expectations which enable all students to reach their potential
- A school, family, community partnership sharing responsibility for student learning.
Franklin-Randall is unique in that two neighborhoods join for kindergarten through second grades at Franklin and third through fifth grades at Randall. Franklin is located on the south side of Lake Monona Bay. Randall is located near the University, two blocks west of Camp Randall Stadium.
The SAGE (Student Achievement Guarantee in Education) grant from the State will keep kindergarten and first grade classes at 15 or fewer students. Second and third grade language arts and math classes have student/teacher ratios of 15 to 1; classes average 23 students during the rest of the day. The total enrollment at both campuses is 720.
Wisconsin Third Grade Reading Test: 88% of the Franklin-Randall third graders who were assessed in the spring of 2002 scored Proficient or Advanced. Climate Survey: Franklin-Randall parents recently graded our schools 3.47 on a 4.0 scale!
Franklin classrooms are each equipped with at least two computer stations incorporated into the daily curriculum. Randall has a fully equipped and networked computer lab.
