We are excited about the future of Joplin High School and Franklin Technology Center. For the last two years, we have been working behind the scenes to prepare for the opening of our new school. Joplin Schools’ educators and local business partners have worked together to create the next generation of JHS/FTC – a comprehensive college, career, and technology focused high school designed to prepare our students for a successful life.
