We would like to welcome you to Franzen Intermediate School.  Franzen Intermediate School is located in Itasca, Illinois.  Our current enrollment is approximately 350 students in grades 3, 4, and 5.  Our average class size is 23.  We are proud of our school community and are honored to work with dedicated professional educators whose primary purpose is to provide a positive learning environment for all of our students.

The District supports the use of technology as a tool for learning and instruction. Emphasis is given to the use of technology in the classroom.  Each grade level is currently equipped with a laptop cart.  In addition, every homeroom teacher has access to an interactive projection device that corresponds with our reading and mathematics curriculum.

Some of these programs are:  a Character Counts!, the Education Fair, and the Franzen Challenge.
