Franklin County High School Reviews
I graduated early from Franklin County High School. I wanted to get out of there as soon as possible! I wasn't happy, a lot of people were very close-minded. It is a small town where everybody knows everybody. The demographics range from rednecks to city boys to foreigners to athletic people. This school is huge! My graduating class was around 500 people. I think because the school is so big it is hard to maintain friendships with people because you are so spread out. Location is beautiful!
Franklin County High School is a 6A school with a very large campus. I really enjoyed having such an immense environment because it gives the school more of a college setting. All of the administration at Franklin County have a passion for what they do and are very caring to all the students. I do think that some of Franklin County High School needs remodeling or needs to be updated, due to it being an older school. I am very excited to go to college and experience everything the future holds for me, but Franklin County has been an amazing school.
Franklin County High School is a fairly large school for the area, but it is also the only High School in Franklin County. However, this school is spread out over 8-9 buildings with a very diverse range of courses to take, making it feel smaller than it really is. There are countless clubs (HOSA, Skills USA, FFA, ect.) available on campus, as well as extra-curricular activities (Drama, Odyssey of the Mind, ect.) a large band program (Marching Band, Indoor Drum Line, Jazz Band, Concert and Symphonic Bands, ect.) and athletics that are open to almost all students. Also, there are Pre-Advanced Placement, Advanced Placement, and College courses (with Dual-Enrollment options with the local community college) available to students looking for more challenging classes.
