Franklin Academy High School Reviews

Franklin Academy has had a great influence to make me the man that I am today. I have taken courses that have challenged me to work tirelessly so that I maintain a 90 average. I have made friends with both students and faculty. I have even been a section champion on several sports teams that I have participated in. However, Franklin Academy lacks consistency and appears to not be able to maintain certain rules, hold its students accountable for their actions, or be able to keep teachers for more than a few years. There are several cases of special privileges for students that are children of the Board of Education and certain teachers. Although, I never felt that I was unsafe at Franklin Academy. Franklin Academy provides two armed officers on campus that are fully capable of protecting the students and faculty.

I had a good experience attending this school. There are opportunities available for all different kinds of students. There is the BOCES program to prepare students to join the work force, and there are AP classes, honors classes, and dual enrollment classes for students preparing for college. I wish there was more involvement in academic extracurriculars. I also wish the student body was more ethnically diverse, but that's not something that can be changed.
Franklin Academy is a very good school where the teachers care about every individual student and if they are having problems the teachers try and make it an easier day for you at school. I’m going to be a senior this year and I have been in this school district my whole life and I wouldn’t have chosen any other high school to go to. I love Franklin Academy!
