Franklin County High School Reviews
Review Franklin County High School
Franklin County has provided me with a great education for the area that it is in. I am fortunate enough to have had a school that employees for the most part well qualified teachers and allows students access to many programs at Virginia Western Community College. However, the AP program at my school is sad. I feel as if the school is trying to phase out AP classes and replace them with Duel Enrollment ones when those classes simply cannot be compared. There are no college bound classes here either which is unfortunate for students who simply cannot fit another AP class in their schedule but have no business being in a regular English or history class. Overall, I think that Franklin County should reevaluate its academics and realize that there are many intelligent students in the school, but given the class options and lack of adequate support to the AP program these kids are not able to flourish academically.
Throughout my high school career at Franklin County I joined several clubs that helped develop skills needed for college. I liked how they offered clubs for just about anyone. I also participated in a variety of the trade classes Franklin County offers. I loved how Franklin County allowed students to further their skills by taking classes in TV production, building trades, collision repair, and so much more. My high school offered several opportunities on how to prepare for college and how to get involved.
Franklin County High School has a fair amount of clubs and organizations. Our administration enjoys getting involved and helping any way that they can. Our school has right many clubs, giving a variety to students to involve themselves in. There's something for everyone! One of the most successful clubs at our school would be FFA (Future Farmers of America), because many students that attend Franklin County High School have an interest in learning about tractors, animals etc. FFA has an annual "Tractor Day", which allows students to bring their own family tractors to school and show them off. This gets a lot of the students involved.
