Our school, formerly Live Oak Elementary, was opened in August 1968, as a kindergarten through sixth-grade campus. In 1997, Live Oak Elementary was renamed Ed Franz Elementary after Edward Franz, a former assistant principal of Live Oak Elementary and principal of Candlewood Elementary. In 2007, the school went through a renovation to update the facilities and add a new wing and cafeteria. Recently, the campus went through a redesign process during the 2021-2022 school year to become a Leadership Academy. The goal of Franz Leadership Academy is to empower our scholars to become well-rounded leaders who are responsible and accountable for their actions, can manage their emotions, make good decisions through problem-solving skills, and strive to become good citizens in the community.
