Franklin high school is filled with opportunities for it's students. I have never seen a faculty that cares so much about the students. The teachers are the best teachers you can find. They are knowledgeable and they pay attention to every student. Sr. Nemo is my all time favorite teacher. He taught me Spanish for 2 years and he is extremely considerate and caring. The clubs are amazing. Franklin offers almost all clubs that one can think of. I was in Forensics club, which helped me gain tremendous confidence and friends. We went for tournaments for public speaking and our school excelled at it. The only problem is that some of the students are no welcoming and are bullies which is something the school needs to work on.
The general atmosphere of Franklin is good and welcoming. I think the teachers are mostly very involved in the academic lives of the students and help them in their best ability. The best part of Franklin High School is the wide variety of clubs and activities to be a part of. We pride ourselves on our well performance in sports along with after school organizations. There are many teachers that devote an extreme amount of time for their students through running these clubs and coaching these teams. One area I wish Franklin would work on is the safety and communication of the school. We received a lot of threats this year fro current or past students. Although these threats were "not liable" they still made everyone nervous to go to school. The communication of these threats was not executed well and could have been better. Therefore, the school experience for me has been average, because there was some really good experiences and some not good experiences.
