I like how pretty much all the classes teach curriculum that help students prepare for college. Overall each class promotes college readiness. The school offers many classes in all sorts of different interests. For example, there are business classes, music classes, tech ed classes and foreign language classes. FHS opens students up to new experiences that will help them choose a career in their future.

I've been a student at Franklin Public schools for four years now. What I want to see change is several things, but most of all the faculty members. Many teach poorly, and I believe the students deserve a better teacher. I have come across many who have not tried to help students, and those were the ones who have struggled and eventually given up, when they could've been saved if they just could have gotten the help or aid from a successful faculty member.
I personally love the school or academics as they provide a wide variety of different opportunities for college credit before college. But when it comes to the administration, and the diversity of the high school, they lack greatly. The administration is VERY controlling and, yes, they should have control of their school, but due to an incident last year, you are not allowed to use any of the common areas after school has completed for the day. The tax payers spent millions upon millions of dollars and due to that single incident, they force you to wait outside for your ride or to go to the library which is a whole entire different story. Now let's move on to diversity, Franklin High School ships in minority students from the Milwaukee area to allow for funding that would otherwise be used else where. Other than that, the school is great, but it has its flaws.
