According to the old folks of the community, school children at Frances used to study in a primary school in San Miguel, Calumpit, Bulacan, a nearby barrio of Frances. Later, a river was formed separating the two barangays, and the site where the school was located became a part of Frances. Since then, the school was named Frances Primary School. For almost two decades, it remained as a primary school where pupils from Grades I to IV studied.
It was in 1968, when the residents felt the need to expand and organize additional classes. They realized that aside from the rapid increase in enrolment, their own children would be benefited for they need not to go to the town proper just to pursue their elementary education. Headed by Mr. Abraham Navarro, the school head, the late PTA President Mr. Pablo Censon, Brgy. Capt. Lucas Bautista with the joint efforts of Barangay leaders, PTA, and community people, a resolution requestion the opening of intermediate classes was made. Through the assistance of the District Supervisor, Mr. Geronimo Victoria and Provincial Board Member Amado Pineda the request was finally granted.
To cope with the increasing number of enrollees a bigger site was needed. Mrs. Apolonia Leyba, a generous resident of Frances donated her 5,000 sq. m. lot where Frances Elementary School (main) was located. In 1969, the first graduation exercises was held.
Since then, Frances Elementary School moved forward. Schoolheads came and left just as the pupils and teachers. Lots of improvements had been made both in physical and academic aspects.
At present, FES (Main and Annex) has a population of less than 500 pupils, 13 teachers including a kinder teacher, headed by a principal. It has 8 school buildings composed of instructional and non-instructional classrooms, a Home Economics Building, and an office. Frances Elementary School is continuously working hard to provide quality education to school children and produce graduates who are "Bayani at Marangal".
