Among the standout schools in the district, James Sales Elementary stands out with its strong state-wide ranking, high test scores, and 3-star rating from SchoolDigger. In contrast, Midland Elementary and Perry G Keithley Middle School struggle with low state rankings and test scores, which may be linked to their high percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. The small Gates Secondary School stands out for its low student-teacher ratio and 0% dropout rate, but its overall state-wide ranking is the lowest among the district's high schools.

The Franklin Pierce School District as a whole is ranked 208 out of 249 districts in Washington and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger, indicating significant challenges in providing a consistently high-quality education across all of its schools.
