Franklin High School is a public high school located in Franklin, Massachusetts, USA.

Their main sports rival is King Philip Regional High School in neighboring Wrentham, Massachusetts. In 2005, the school was placed on Warning Status for Accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), so a new Franklin High School was constructed on what was once the old high school's athletic fields. It was first open to the public about 2 weeks before the first day of school (September 3, 2014.). The plan is to have the new athletic fields and the old school demolished by the spring of 2015.[2]


Franklin High is proud to share that their girls varsity soccer team became state champions in 2012. As of 2015, three years have elapsed and a sign has since been erected to commemorate this achievement, very much like a highway vigil. [3]Additionally, a new building has recently been constructed after ten years of neglect and indifference for the general safety of the student. Nevertheless, there are many new facilities and fields for our teams to lose their respective matches now.
