I love Franklin Central! There are many activities and opportunities. Most importantly, they support me and offer ways to get involved with the special needs community. This is very important to me, as I plan on pursuing a special education degree.

Franklin Central's curriculum is fairly difficult, if you choose the right classes. I've felt like I learned a lot, but one thing I would like to see changed is an excessive amount of 'teaching to the test'. I'm aware that test scores are essential to the funding the school receives, but the number of times I have heard, "You don't need to know this, it won't be on the test," is astounding. Pandering to the test and the test only just inhibits a student from obtaining all necessary knowledge and not being as fully versed in a subject or matter as possible. That said, the teachers here do successfully teach what they see fit, and I do feel that they have done their job (which unfortunately is to teach to the test) successfully.
As far as academics goes Franklin Township staff wants to get the absolute most out of every student. They all want to see each student go on to success past high school. Whether that is college, military or whatever the case may be. The school spirit for the sports teams are also very good. The student section at all of the big games is unparalleled. Everyone at the school is proud of all of the other sports teams or other clubs or choirs. The best part about the school system is how everyone is always supportive of one another whether it be fundraisers for Riley children's hospital or the sports teams or the bad or choirs. While the township does have its faults I wouldn't change my experience in the township for anywhere else.
