I grew up K-12th grade in the school district of Franklin County Public Schools. My mom couldn't have put me through a better and caring system than she did. The teachers care so much about the content they are teaching, it is simply awesome. Unlike some students, I looked forward to getting on the school bus (and then my car later on down the road) and arriving at school. The teachers made learning fun, as well as involved. They constantly talked to us about post middle and high school, and began teaching us about the real life world. Unfortunately we weren't taught how to do taxes (lol!) but we were taught what opportunities were out there for us, and how we needed to seize those moments when they came along. Overall, my experience in this district was amazing and thank everyone for that wonderful journey. Go Hills!

Franklin County offers so many activities for all ages of students to participate in, I have been involved in archery, choir, band, the musical, clubs, and cross country since 5th grade. They always make sure there's enough for all students to participate in. The teachers could be a little more cooperative with the way students learn though, when students express that they learn best by hands-on, teachers don't pay attention and work straight from the book.
I enjoy how involved the teachers and administrators are in students lives to best help the student. The only thing I would like to see change is more challenging work and less lecture teaching from teachers, more hands on work to help all students learning abilities. The staff is always looking for what is best and safe for their students and are serious when needed but also relatable for the students best interest.
