Franklin teachers care about thier students. 9/10 teachers are top of the line, but there will be a few that fall short of incredible. Teachers here want to make a difference. Franklin offers many clubs and athletic opportunities. Although our football team is not the greatest, there are so many more things to be proud of; Choir State Champions, Swimming State Champions, Wildlife Team National Champions, and more! Franklin has increased their safety protocols to make the students feel safe. There are 15+ clubs to join. The school was built several years ago so it is fairly new. It may seem ginormous on the outside, but it feels a lot smaller on the inside and is easy to navigate.

I enjoyed my experience at FCHS very much. I learned so much beyond the classroom and felt all my extracurriculars were beyond worth the time. At FCHS I participated in the state's top choirs and participated in the women's soccer team. At FCHS I felt we had some of the states, top-level teachers. They always put forward everything they could in order to make sure that we were as successful as possible. Our school campus and facilities were equally as rewarding. At FCHS we have been lucky enough to have an incredibly beautiful school and campus with supplies and technology that help us succeed. I felt FCHS provided a wonderful and rewarding experience for me to receive my high school education.
I would say that Franklin Community High School is an amazing school to attend due to the fact that the teachers really are there for every student and want to know how they can help inside and outside of the school. We have made sports and other extracurricular activities an amazing thing to be apart of with excellent facilities able to be used. Along with this, they make sure every student is given the best learning opportunity the school can offer.
