Franklin High School Reviews
Franklin High School has a great education program and provides a variety of courses from dance classes, to AP Environmental Studies, to Japanese, to Multicultural Literature and more! The staff are very friendly and inclined to help and treat students in a way that lets you know they take their job seriously. This school is safe and we aim to included all people of different cultures, the LGBT community, disabled and more.
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.
I loved the tech ed program at franklin, was educated in all different types of trades and possible careers that you could go into. The school has cameras covering every square inch of the school covering multiple angles except for in the parking lot. Had my car vandalized and upon multiple incidents at school it seemed that they were more concerned their political agenda for the school than actually helping the students. Everything the front office does is more of a front than actually helping their students. Also you would think that since they put however many million dollars into their Saber Center auditorium that they could actually hold graduation there. Nope, it’s used all of about 12 times per year during the plays and concerts they have there but otherwise it’s pretty much useless. Meanwhile they continue to shrink the budget of all of the other departments especially the tech ed departement to maintain and improve all of the arts programs.
