About Us

Founded in 1995, Benjamin Franklin Charter School was one of Arizona’s first charter schools and has been “Educating Arizona...One Student at a Time”™ ever since. Our mission is to offer a well-rounded education with proven superior academics, exceptional programs, time-honored values, and a high level of parental participation.
We have three elementary (K-6) campuses and one JH/HS Campus located in Arizona’s East Valley. Our campuses rank within the top 10% of Arizona’s 445 districts. We offer our students not only a world class education, but also extracurricular activities, fine-arts programs, and athletic programs.

We believe that learning, hard work, and fun are not mutually exclusive and that learning should be a joyful and exciting endeavor, especially for children.
