Frank Principal Martha Jacobo-Smith


Welcome to Frank Elementary School, home of the Panthers!

We are a community of learners, committed to academic success for each student. We honor the rich diversity in our school, for we know it is our strength!

Frank Elementary School is a Pre-K through Fifth-grade learning community that serves approximately 600 students. Our students have access to special education programs, gifted programs, P.E., Music, computer lab, and library instruction for K-5 students, and Band, Orchestra, and Choir for our 5th grade students. We continue to provide our students with classroom technology to support the various learning styles of our students and to ensure continued mastery and preparedness for the rigors of the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards.

At Frank Elementary, we are committed to providing a positive learning environment and rigorous instruction that’s differentiated to meet the success level of each student. All materials and resources are research-based and together with frequent teacher collaboration during our Professional Learning Communities, all students will experience success. We are determined to do whatever it takes to ensure success for each student. We also expect excellence from our students by involving them in setting goals for learning and by requiring the very best from every student.

We value and welcome the partnership with our parents, community, business partners, and community groups. It is through our combined efforts that we can make the biggest impact in the academic lives of our students. We welcome the opportunity to work together with our parents to support the instructional needs of all our students.

You will find that our school is an amazing place for your child to learn and grow. I encourage you to remain connected and highly involved through the various school events and opportunities that support our students. With your support, we will continue to provide the best educational experience for you child!
