I loved the people and atmosphere. I would improve in parent involvement and college readiness. I was not ready for college at all, not good preparation.
Franklin High School is a really great school, everyone supports you and shows kindness. Its a school where you walk in everyday and have a bunch of support and every time you leave you have made a new memory with the people around you. The teachers are willing to do anything to just watch you succeed. One thing I would definitely like to see changed is some of the desk and chairs in the classrooms have been in there for over more than 10 years, you may think I'm exaggerating but I'm truly not. Overall, I've had an amazing experience at Franklin High School and I for sure know that i will always have a place there to call hom.
