Our School


    Located in the foothills of the Franklin Mountains on the Westside of El Paso, Franklin High School opened its doors for the first time in the Fall of 1993 with approximately 900 freshmen. The school was temporarily housed at Hornedo Middle School for one year until the completion of the Franklin High School facility in the fall of 1994. Each year another grade level was added until the school had its first senior class in the 1996-1997 school year. 

    The highest award in the State for school architecture, the Caudill Award for Design Excellence, was presented to Franklin's architects, Stanley and PSA and Joint Venture Architecture of El Paso, for their design of Franklin High School.Included in the 300,000 square foot facility are 14 science labs, 8 computer labs, 3 gymnasiums, a separate fine arts building with theater,and a state-of-the-art library. The campus has a football field with a track, baseball and soccer fields, tennis and handball courts, and an outdoor basketball arena. Due to the rapid growth and expansion of the Westside, the Franklin campus also includes 18 portable classrooms.


    I want to take a moment to introduce myself, Amanda Bowser, as your new Franklin Principal. This will be my 17th year with EPISD, the past 8 of those years I have served the Franklin Feeder Community as an instructional coach and Assistant Principal at Polk Elementary, as well as Assistant Principal at Franklin High School. I am extremely honored to continue serving the community I love as your Principal. 


    Franklin High School is committed to do what is right for students every day.
