FPHS Sports!

FPHS Athletes and Families,

Thank you for helping Franklin Pierce HS get through numerous challenges this year and getting our students back into interscholastic athletics. We now look towards next year and back to growing the programs at Franklin Pierce HS. If we didn’t already know… or we had forgotten… This last year reminded us of the impact athletics has on our students and on the culture at Franklin Pierce HS. Continue to reach out to coaches and programs. Remain connected with your teams as we head off into the summer. Franklin Pierce HS wants to continue the momentum built in these last four months and into the next school year.

Please see contact information for all of our programs below.
