Franklin Central’s academics and arts are amazing, the sports are subpar. Most of the teachers are good, but a few are not. The band program is AMAZING.
I had a great experience at Franklin Central. They make the path to college and college preparation a very easy path to take. I enjoyed almost every one of my teachers and I really found the courses easy to take. They also provide a plethora of scholarships along with how to obtain others.
To be completely honest, it's your ordinary high school. Nothing too crazy ever happens, you have your typical high school stereotypes. Personally, I have yet to face an issue at this school.
Franklin Central High School is a wonderful school. However, they’re too concerned with their athletic department that can’t seem to win anything and neglect their preforming arts department that actually wins things. They waste all their money buying the football team (who went 1-8 last season) expensive equipment that doesn’t help them win. This leaves the preforming arts to fend for themselves whenever they need money for necessary equipment (ex. A new semi trailer for the marching band). The school also constantly hypes up anything “good” that happens with their athletics while completely ignoring anything noteworthy that isn’t sports related.
My experience at Franklin Central has been average. It’s not amazing but it hasn’t been awful. It’s a simple high school with nothing out of the ordinary. Only thing I’d like to complain about are the restroom facilities because they aren’t clean or neat, causing students to hold it in until they arrive home. They should also invest more time and experience into clubs and providing students with more resources, such as actual digital cameras instead of having to use a phone for photography class.
I'm a current senior at Franklin Central High School. Throughout my time at FC, I've learned a lot about preparing myself for the future. The teachers have taught me how to be more independent when it comes to things like preparing for tests and taking my own notes. They stressed the importance of asking questions, allowing me to feel more comfortable when doing so to ensure that I have a full understanding of the topic we're learning about. I would like to see the faculty try to be more involved with the students by getting to know them better on a more personal level, rather than just knowing our name. Also, I would like to see more teachers know other methods of teaching since not all students learn the same.
Franklin Central High school is a great place for a great education. There are lots of caring teachers and the staff is wonderful.
Franklin Central High School is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are all so friendly and constantly engaged which makes the learning experience so much better compared to other schools. The school is very organized with its events and has cleanliness to it that not all schools have. Our facilities are very nice such as our football stadium, our multiple gymnasiums, and our tennis courts. All in all Franklin Central High School is definitely a school I can say that I was proud to go to and it as a very great school.
The teachers are very caring about their students and want to help them succeed, and they offer a very wide variety of classes.
My experience at FCHS has been a variety of ups and downs. One thing I really like about my school is that they help you out when the going gets tough. We have many different tutoring programs and study groups. Another thing I like about FCHS is that there are lots of different clubs/sports. There is something for everyone, from a Gay-Straight alliance club to a special needs cheer team. I think it is really important for a school to have some kind of activities where anyone can be included and FCHS has many. In contrast, one thing I would change about FCHS is its guidance counseling. I am a strong believer in the importance of mental health and FCHS isn't. FCHS does think of grades first and mental health second and that is something that I would never agree on. So like every other school, we have our pros and cons but I do believe it is a really amazing school.
Franklin Central provided me so many opportunities. Playing sports, joining clubs, going to sporting events. They helped me find some life long friends and I was able to build some good relationships between me and my teachers. A few ups and downs but I always knew I had at least one teacher in the school to go to for help.
Franklin Central High School does their very best to bring out the best in their students. Whether it's through a student's education or social life, Franklin Central does their best to support their students and encourage them to do great things. One area Franklin Central High School could use improvement on is their teachers. Some teachers are extremely passion about what they do and take advantage of any opportunity they are given to help a student, while other teachers not so much. From my experience it's a hit or miss situation. However, this variety has expanded my learning skills and has helped me to adapt to different environments to reach success.
The four years I went to Franklin Central High School, I really liked the teachers that I got because they were always so understanding and made me feel included in the classroom. The classes that they offered gave me a lot of knowledge and helped me discover things I didn't know about myself. The reason the school gets 4 stars is because there wasn't so much diversity at the beginning of my freshman year, so I hope there is more diversity in the future.
Franklin Central High School was an amazing place to make great long-lasting friendships while helping you prepare the real world whether that means going to college or going straight into the industry. Our school pride is the best in our state, to say the least. We always had multiple clubs or sports that we could join in on after school. Franklin Central gave me some of the best memories I could ask for.
As an upperclassmen at FC, the teachers and the principal, Chase Huotari, pushed me to speak up, be a leader, and be an advocate for myself and others. I'm very thankful to have attended this school district since Kindergarten. It prepared me well for University. I wish I could've had more experience with diverse staff and clubs, however.
Franklin Central High School has been a good experience for me in preparing my future for work and college.
I will say that the science and math departments of this school were very thorough and effective to my education. However, for the most part, it didn't seem that a variety of learning styles were considered. Many of the teachers assign supposedly "fun" projects that instead come across as patronizing to the students and lead to an even greater deal of stress and self-doubt if any student feels incapable of understanding them. I believe this approach works in small doses, but in some cases it is the bulk of almost every assignment in a class, and I strongly believe that a greater variety of project styles is the best method of teaching.
