Just transferred with this year being my first year. Coming from a very small school, the first thing i noticed was the STRONG sense of pride! People actually go to school events(even the more optional ones) which completely shocked me. The teachers are really cool and do their jobs well but i do believe some should challenge students more. Although I've yet to join a club, the selection seems to be pretty good and useful. People seem to take sports serious here and teams are decent(some more than others). All in all, Franklin is a great school:).

During my four years at Franklin High School, I have always loved being involved with sports, clubs, and social activities. I have played soccer and volleyball, and participated in leadership and linkcrew. These activities have made my high school experience amazing!
Franklin High School is a diverse and opportunistic academy with a wide variety of classes, clubs, and athletics.
Our school's strong connection to the community and nearby schools creates a lighthearted and inclusive environment. I recommend all lower class students take a tour of our campus and attend Franklin!
