Franklin Pierce School District Reviews

It's not very often that we hear of high school making us humble, but mine did. I've never been to a more diverse, cultured, and aware school. Every kid had a different background, yet we were all brought together by our interests. I've learned so much more over my high school years than just math and science. Sometimes silence is golden, and taking a minute to listen to someone's story can make all the difference.

Franklin Pierce high school gave me the opportunity to branch out of my comfort zone without fear of rejection. The teachers actually cared about me as a person, and not just a student. They got to know me on a more personal level which lead me to trust them as well. While there are some negative people who say that Franklin Pierce is terrible, but high school is really what you make of it, and I took every opportunity I had to make my high school experience worth while.
Franklin pierce high school gives many opportunities to students to graduate and make high school wonderful. I personally say that it is a wonderful school for education. I’m currently taking and aerospace class that guarantees a job after high school not many school have this program. The teachers at fp are very respectful and amazing. The spirit of fp is very aware and exciting.
