Welcome to Gilbert!
Welcome to Benjamin Franklin Charter School, Gilbert campus. My name is Jennifer Hawks and I am the proud principal of the beautiful Gilbert campus.
I feel very fortunate to be a part of this Franklin Family and am especially grateful for our Gilbert campus. I have high expectations for myself, the staff, the students, and the parents alike. I am looking forward to working with the Gilbert community to help inspire and optimize the potential of every student entrusted in my care. I view this opportunity as a privilege and am eager to continue to serve with the level of excellence you have come to expect.
As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year there is one word that stands at the forefront of my mind and that is resilience. I believe that we have the perfect opportunity to demonstrate great resilience this school year. We will overcome and emerge from the obstacles of last year. I believe that how we overcome a setback and face the future will have a colossal impact on the lives of our students. Our focus this year is to instill the importance of resilience and grit in our students as they achieve the high standards of academic excellence and personal growth that are associated with Benjamin Franklin. At our school, we will work hard to create a positive environment that allows every person to feel welcome and valued.
I am honored to serve as the principal of Benjamin Franklin Charter School - Gilbert. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where teachers, students, and parents care for one another and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to stop by the school, introduce yourself, visit for a few minutes, or even take a tour. Our friendly office staff is here to help! Let’s make it a great year!
