Steve Ahaus l Franklin Community High SchoolWelcome to Franklin Community High School! It is an honor to serve the nearly 1,650 students attending our school.

I feel fortunate to have spent my entire professional career working for Franklin Community Schools. After spending the first 12 years teaching mathematics at Franklin High School, I spent two years as Assistant Principal before becoming the Principal in 2015 at Franklin Community Middle School. I returned to the High School as Principal in 2017.

I love the community of Franklin and the wonderful teachers, counselors, support staff and administrators I am fortunate to work with each day.  Each year, we strive to provide each student with a safe, supportive, and positive learning experience. We encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year. Go Grizzly Cubs!
