Franklin Regional School District Reviews

The biggest downside of Franklin Regional Senior High School is that there is so little diversity. I love getting to know people of all backgrounds, regardless of race, religion, socioeconomic background, etc. Our community is mostly white upper middle class. If there was more diversity at my school, I truly believe that my experience would be more wholesome. On the other hand, my school is very strong in academics. The Franklin Regional motto is that we "strive for excellence," and this is evident from a combination of challenging course offerings, an extensive honor roll, and high standardized test scores.

My experience of Franklin Regional was diminished by the student body. People tended to form cliques that were very difficult to get into if you weren't there from the start. Perhaps this can be addressed in the Elementary and middle schools. Many teachers were very invested in what they taught, some were not. Only about half of the college board AP courses were offered. It prepared me for academic rigor of college but little effort was spent in preparing me for a career and turning classroom experiences into a career.
Franklin Regional successfully creates a tight-knit community in which parents, students, and teachers all work toward success. It is easy to get academic help or to get enrichment opportunities in and outside of class. Counselors are always doing their best to see that students are challenging themselves, while also keeping a reasonable course load.
There is a large variety of clubs, sports, and other extracurriculars, from your run of the mill chess club, to Tibetan Culture Club.
The only part of Franklin's academic program that is lacking is the music department, which is sorely understaffed.
