Swansboro Elementary School is located in south Richmond in the Swansboro community. The school was constructed in the early 1900's when it opened as Franklin Elementary School. In the early 1980's, the school housed The Franklin Military Academy. In 1986 this community petitioned the Richmond Public Schools to remodel the building. The school was refurbished, reopened, and renamed Swansboro Elementary School after the community in which it resides. Classes began in the beautiful, historic school on September 1986 and continue today serving Kindergarten through Fifth grade students.
