Franklin High School offers great academic opportunities. The school offers many Advanced Placement and Capstone classes. It also offers Dual Enrollment classes. Counselors and teachers help students get internships or volunteer opportunities that they can earn credit through as well. Our facilities could be better. We only have one gym that has one main court. Our wrestling room is small and has to be used as an upper gym for gym classes. When 35 kids are crammed into a small space for gym class, it does not work out well.
It's a fairly good school with many opportunities for kids interested in several different areas. We have a good Musical/Theater organization. We have a good art program. We have a good construction program for hand on kids. Franklin High School has more than what many schools have and it leads kids in the right direction into the future. That being said, they need to become better and controlling those who try to annoy/bother the other kids that are actually trying in school.
