  • Mr. Barksdale's Message


    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! It is my sincere hope that you were able to find adventure, excitement, and relaxation over the summer months. I find that the ability to refresh and recharge during the summer break is critical for students and their families to embrace a productive and successful learning experience during the school year.

     This school year will no doubt be unique, memorable and, at times challenging. I am confident that we will come together as a community to create the very best experience possible for our students.  We will continue to strive for academic excellence and support of our students with their social and emotional well-being. We will continue to work in collaboration with parents and community members to facilitate our FHS students in realizing and achieving their fullest potential.

     As you work through your years at FHS, I challenge each of you to set goals and standards that will be above those set by most high school students. Your time at FHS is foundational to your future success, and we are confident about the positive impact each of our students will make in the  world.  I look forward to the challenges of tomorrow and, with that, I am excited about the future of Franklin High School.  Together we will continue to move forward and find new ways to achieve academic greatness.
