I appreciate my high school experience, because it shows me the real world and how different people react to situations. I did not have the ¨perfect high school life¨, but who does? Every school has unfair situations, bullying, and misunderstandings but that does not matter as long as the student has people or just one person to help and support them. I would like to see Franklin County High School change the way they handle some situations and have more of an open mind to what the students want to see happen in school.

I am a current student attending Franklin County High School. The number one thing I enjoy about Franklin County High School is its educational opportunities and teachers. There is honestly no specific thing that I could see added to the school. It's in a good area, has a great athletic organization, offers many general classes as well as college readiness courses and has a high graduation rate.
The quality of education is very good for a public school. Multiple college and AP classes offered for students looking to take challenging classes. Clean, friendly, and inclusive environment. It is very evident that the teachers not only care about you as a student, but as a person and are looking to help better you as much as they can.
