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.
This is really a top-notch high school. The building is clean, modern, and has a pleasant aesthetic. The course offering is great; there’s no shortage of AP classes, and there are career-specific courses such as architecture and coding. Franklin High is also the only school in the county to offer the IB program. As for the school culture, Franklin High is one of the "hypest" schools in the county. The sports seasons are always full of energy and school spirit. I only have a little criticism. First, the student body isn't very diverse. Also, there are a couple teachers who fall below the school's high standard. They're widely known among students for sub-par teaching abilities or simply being "scary". Despite these few faults, Franklin High is definitely a five-star school.
