FPS offer a comprehensive, well rounded Pre K - 12th grade education. Special Ed, Title I and Gifted programs supplement regular classes to accommodate and challenge students of all levels, abilities and interests. Important areas of education exploration include agriculture, the sciences, business and entrepreneurship.
Our student-teacher ratio is excellent, with a K-12 enrollment of approximately 320. Dual credit classes are offered where high school students can earn college credit at a fraction of the cost with 120 college credits earned in 2007. A number of scholarships are awarded every year by private, public and charitable donors on an annual basis to deserving graduates.
FPS student assessments and school ratings for math, reading and ACT profiles were consistently and significantly above state and national averages and exceeded peer comparisons as well. These results reflect the excellence in FPS teaching skills, training and qualifications and the emphasis and insistence on teaching excellence at the administrative and school board levels. Franklin “Flyer” Pride is a living concept and is earned every day.
Award-winning activities and sports programs include FFA, FCCLA, Quiz Bowl, Future Problem Solvers, Science Club, Speech, Drama, Band, Vocal Music, Football, Cross Country, Volleyball, Wrestling, Basketball, Track and Golf.

The Nebraska Volunteer Service Commission provides a resource for prospective and current students with disabilities who are looking to pursue a college education within the state. The site also discusses the offline and online educational paths one can follow to obtain a degree from an accredited institution. Since most schools must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504, students with disabilities in Nebraska can rest assured that their school will provide at least a basic level of accommodation.
