I had a great experience at Franklin High School. If you want to grow tremendously and be successful, there is numerous opportunities to do so. However, these won't be handed to you. You have to step up. Similarly, if you just want to get through high school, that's possible too!

Franklin High is a very wonderful high
School that appropriately prepares students for college and how college will work. Some courses may even be more difficult than college courses as the school holds itself to a high standard and most of the students at franklin high school are very involved in academics and extra-curricular activities. For a public school there is a big underlying subtext of competition amongst some, if not most students to do the best, the most and get into the best colleges which translates to be very beneficial to those who tend to slack off or be less academically focused
This is a great school to attend. The academics are strong, many teachers and counselors are supportive people, and the extracurriculars are diverse. There are a lot of activities a student can choose from. We have award-winning sports teams, national honors societies, musical and art groups, and scholastic competition groups. The resources are plentiful when it comes to the technologies and library.
