The Keller School was built in 2002. Its modern design features wide hallways, well-lit stairwells and lots of artwork throughout the corridors and public spaces.
Artwork and projects done by students fill the hallways with interest and color. Keller students also get to enjoy wall murals recently painted by internationally-acclaimed artist Bren Bataclan.
These murals are based on the ‘Oceans of Fun” theme selected by the majority vote of all Keller students. Mr. Bataclan incorporated into the murals images and designs created by Keller students. Mr Bataclan works out of Boston and has been profiled on the CBS World News. His works have appeared in print publications ranging from Smithsonian Magazine to The New Yorker.
‘Cheerful, fresh and clean’ are the words that best characterize the classrooms at Keller Elementary, as befits Franklin’s newest elementary school.
The technology in the classrooms is up-to-date as well. Many classes have interactive whiteboards connected to document cameras (real-time image capture devices).
This technology allows a teacher to display on the whiteboard what she is writing on paper and to display and manipulate objects while the class watches in real time. In addition, every classroom at Keller has two student computers.
Beautiful Media Center/Library
The soaring atrium ceiling at the Keller Elementary School’s Media Center/Library creates an energizing sense of space, while the stacks and reading areas convey a warm, cozy feel.
The Keller Elementary School’s Media Center/Library is dedicated to instilling a love of reading in Keller students while helping them develop the technological skills that will be needed in middle and high school. The Media Center/Library is used by both Keller Elementary and Sullivan Middle School students.
The Cafetorium at Keller is one of the centers of life at the school. Its uses go way beyond just serving lunch.
The Keller Cafetorium is the site of many fun and educational school activities including singing performances and art shows as well as an annual Science Night where kids get to explore, experiment and have fun!
In short, the Keller Cafetorium is a very special place!
