From Benjamin Franklin High School

We are a tuition-free, "A" rated high school serving grades 7-12 in Queen Creek, Arizona! Founded in 1995, we were one of Arizona's first charter schools.

Our mission is to train students to be intellectually curious and pursue academic and moral excellence through the pursuit of what is good, true, and beautiful; to teach them how to think instead of what to think. To that end, BFHS uses the classical model of education.

Many of our parents find that our emphasis on both academics and moral character aligns with their own moral vision and instruction at home. Our students fall in love with knowledge, and use the talents they acquire to become thinking, moral citizens.

Other Programs/Features: Dual Enrollment, Junior High & High School Athletics, Award Winning Fine Arts, AP & Honors Courses available, Student Government opportunities, World Language courses, a wide range of elective courses, clubs/extracurricular activities, and individual tutoring available.

A common misconception is that the liberal arts preclude STEM, but in fact, the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are included in the liberal arts! Science and math offer new approaches and unique opportunities to explore truth and beauty. We are committed to pursuing excellence in the hard sciences as well as the humanities.
