I liked how involved all the staff and students are with eachother. I also really like the resources the school offers and the accomidations they make to ensure every student feels safe and happy in the school environment. With a new school, there are many advantages with the state of the art technology and access to very good resources to help give students the best education possible. The administration is understanding and provides comfort and support for all students going through struggles and transitions. All the staff is very well equipped to help students reguardless of their issues and never fail to show compassion and flexibility when needed. Al other calculations and staff want what is in the best interest of the students and will not hesitate to help make accomidations in order for one to be successful.

My experience at Franklin High was excellent because of the many opportunities and experiences open to myself and those around me. Franklin High maintains great social and academic diversity, with students coming from a vast variety of backgrounds, and classes respectively varying to match all levels of performance. It also hosts an array of opportunities for sports, civil rights, and the arts, and because of this variety in academics and activities, great experiences are always around the corner at Franklin High, like concerts, field trips, art shows, and a ton of after-school clubs. With classes like Animation, Conspiracy Theories, and even Jazz Studio, there's plenty of opportunities for students of all grade levels at Franklin. As well as this, all of the teachers there excel at interacting with their students on an individual level. In general, I would not be where I am, academically, artistically, nor socially, without all of the great experiences I had at Franklin High.
The school was rebuilt 3 years ago so the facilities are very good. You receive a good education at Franklin High and the teachers are generally good. The student body is focused on academics and is well behaved; there are not a lot of fights or dangerous behavior. Most of the kids have been in the Franklin Public School system since kindergarten so by the time you get to high school, you end up knowing almost everyone (there are only three middle schools). My time at Franklin High School has been good and I think I'm prepared for the challenges of college.
