Franklin Township Community School Corporation Reviews

Franklin Central is a challenging school that offers a diverse option of AP classes. The teachers are very helpful when you need something. "FCHS" offers a diploma that is inclusive to our school, which is a step higher than the Indiana Academic Honors diploma, it's called the FC Honors diploma. It's the most rigorous curriculum you can take that requires dedication to your school career. It is a special honor to attain this prestigious diploma. It proves that the student is serious about his/her future. I'm a proud FC Student and I'm happy to have the opportunity to go here.
The only disappointment I have is, if a AP course you are really wanting to take, and there aren't "enough" students to enroll in it, it won't be opened.

I will admit that the school was not very diverse when I first got there in 2009, towards the end of my high school career it did become more diverse. I liked every teacher I had there, they knew who you were and did their job like they were supposed. I was able to go to a career center and get a little taste of the dental field. In school they were pretty strict but also lenient at the same time. I was a part of the cheer team and i loved it. Cheer was so fun I loved being a part of the school spirit, which was very high.
Overall our kids have received a great education. Having one in college, I believe she was prepared for the increased responsibilities and workload college brings. Our kids have had plenty of opportunities to get involved in extracurricular actives including sports, music, leadership, service and cultural groups. Franklin Township schools have great teachers and offer a small town community feel with all the advantages of a larger school.
