From Benjamin Franklin Charter School - Gilbert

We are a tuition free, "A" rated public charter school! Founded in 1995, we were one of Arizona's first charter schools. Our curriculum is rooted in Traditional Education. We teach students the foundational skills and knowledge needed to prepare them for their future.

Through Traditional Education, we focus on both personal development and academics. We do this not only by offering specials and extracurriculars, but also through our Core Virtues Program (a literature based method of teaching civic virtues).

We offer both HALF and FULL-Day Kindergarten options (both are completely free). All kindergarten classrooms have 2 teachers, and students have small group time and individual attention during the day.

Other Programs and Features: Gifted/Talented Program, Before & After-School Care, Elementary Sports, Band & Orchestra, Music & P.E., a variety of clubs, and multiple recess breaks during the day!
