I really enjoy Franklin High School! It has great academic programs, including the option of AP and IB level classes. They also offer many Career Technical Education (CTE) courses that really help prepare students for their future. The teachers and administration are all around great! They really account for busy lives students leave. So, while they push us to succeed, they also accommodate very well to student’s needs. Franklin also has a lot of community and really works to bring people together. They offer many ways to get connected - clubs, sports, and a nationally recognized band that all strive for something good! There’s not much I would change! (except maybe county funding for the arts)

My four year experience with FHS was great! The teachers and administration are very involved and go above and beyond to ensure that students receive the best education possible. There is something for everyone at FHS. There is a variety of classes/programs offered at Franklin. There are also numerous clubs and other ways to be involved. I play softball and basketball. Franklin High School is involved in the community. There are numerous opportunities for community service. I will always treasure my days at FHS. I know that my experience at Franklin will help me in the next step I take...college!
There are very few improvements that need to be made, in my opinion, at Franklin High School. The first one that comes to mind is improvements in the athletic facilities. It is one of the oldest schools in Williamson County (in Tennessee) and mostly just needs updates.
Moving to Franklin High School my Sophomore year was one of the best decisions I have made. I have met some of my very best friends at Franklin High and have grown dramatically as a person being a student there. Franklin challenges you academically and my teachers pushed me to do the best and be the best I could be! They are also accepting of you no matter what race, gender, or background you come from. I am thankful I can say I was a student of Franklin High School's 2016 graduating class.
