• A Message from Principal Brandt
    Welcome to Franklin Grove Elementary School!
    Exciting things are happening everyday at Franklin Grove Elementary School! I invite you to visit our school to see the quality teaching and learning taking place in every classroom.

    Located in the far northwest corner of Decatur, Franklin Grove has a beautiful campus. Ben Franklin Elementary opened in 1967 and merged with Oak Grove Elementary at the start of the 2021-22 school year.  Our colors are blue and white and our new mascot is the Tornado. You will find Franklin Grove to have a warm, friendly atmosphere where families and visitors are always welcome.


    If you have questions or need assistance please contact us, we will be happy to help you. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m Monday through Friday. You can reach us by phone at (217) 362-3560 or click here to email me.


    Thank you,
    Dianne Brandt
