About the School

History of the school

Francis Walsh Intermediate school was built in 1972 and was originally called Branford Intermediate School. It was built in the open school style, characterized by classrooms with no walls, open space, and emphasis on community, sharing, and character. While these characteristics still ring true today, a number of classroom walls have been built throughout the years.
