Overall, FA is a pretty good school. We have the problems that most schools in upstate New York do, like some crappy teachers, a mostly decrepit building, and the overwhelming smell of cow manure in the Spring, but our school has good qualities too. We have some major problems with our building including three extremely old girls bathrooms, a leaking roof, and a carpeted band room floor that has been soaking up spit and valve/slide oil for 20 years, not to mention the completely unpredictable heating and air conditioning. Regardless of this, our school has many clubs and sports that students can participate in, and many honors, AP, college, and extracurricular classes so students have the opportunity to take what they want, (when the horrible scheduling permits it).
The past 3 years I have spent at FA have shaped me into the woman I am today. Due to FA being in a small town, it contains an intimate atmosphere. This atmosphere creates a healthy relationship between a teacher and student. I enjoy being able to freely ask for assistance regardless of the subject and receive immediate feedback. Another aspect I appreciate is the positive attitude displayed in my school. The teachers in my school enjoy their job and dedicate time to their students and their futures. Though my school has many positive attributes it also has room for change. It would be convenient if FA had counselors solely dedicated to the topic of college, therefore lessening the stress of a student. Another possible place for change would be the availability for a class centered on life. One that teaches students how to write checks, pay taxes, insurance, etc. After high school, some are thrown right into life and have no idea how it works, so a class like this would be beneficial.
Franklin Academy does a great job of allowing students to explore their interests. The school offers a plethora of clubs, classes, and sports. Along with this, there are great opportunities for students interested in music with three bands, three choirs, and music classes. The school also prepares students for the future by offering many college classes. One of the few things the school is lacking is preparation for the real world outside of college.
