Franklin High School is an interesting place to grow and learn in. It is a somewhat small school, but has friendly staff and gives me an environment where I feel comfortable being in. The school does a good job keeping its students educated and informed, and keeps morality up with pep rallies and spirit weeks. It was, without a shadow of a doubt, a pleasant school to be a part of. The most I can wish for when regarding change is an improvement in the school's resources, food, and diversity in both people and classes.

Arts and music department is one of the best in the area. They just added a creative workshop and I know a ton of kids love it. There is a lot of positive changes they are making to the school to bring a better vibe when you walk in the doors. Most of the teachers are great and will work with all students. From my experience I have never had a problem with missing class for a sport they will always make sure you are mentally and physically okay before they teach.
This school not only greatly lacks a variety of AP classes, but it also does a poor job of preparing students for college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT. In short, it barely prepares students for college.
