Franklin Township Public Schools are excellent! Best features are: diversity, multiple clubs, great curriculum, supportive teachers, parent/family support, excellent events, and school incident transparency. If there was one thing i would change, it would be to have better school lunches with fresher, healthier foods (versus processed food). Overall, an excellent district that prepares students for the future and supports families.

Franklin Township has to have been one of the most diverse school districts I've ever encountered in my life. I definitely appreciated the variety in the student body, and it really allowed me to experience and learn about so many different cultures! I had so many great teachers throughout all of the years as well, and had the opportunity to form positive relationships with almost all of them. But, I will say that I wish Franklin Township started challenging their students a bit earlier. For example, when I was in Franklin Township I didn't have the chance to be in an honors science course until the ninth grade, and as a student that always excelled in my academics this made things difficult for me in middle school because I wasn't surrounded by like-minded, motivated students. If Franklin Township could start those concentrated, advanced courses earlier in the grade school process I feel like the students who wanted to go far would get more of an opportunity to do so.
Franklin is a place that is highly diverse, where everyone is free to express and be themselves. I remember always great about going to school, where I felt like my education was valued. The home of the warriors will always be a home to me no matter wherever I go. Go Warriors!
