My experience at Franklin High School has been amazing! As soon as I came to FHS freshman year, I instantly felt welcome. The teachers here are very kind and excellent at what they do. They take the time to make sure you understand the content being taught and prepare you for a successful future. The environment of the school is very welcoming and makes me feel proud to be a Franklin Saber. I've met many amazing people here that I know I'll be friends with for the rest of my life and I know that I'll be prepared to enter the real world because of Franklin High School.
Review Franklin High School
Given that there are several after-school clubs and organizations, I am always happy to attend school. The clubs I partake in, which are Boys' Tennis, Forensics, Tutoring and Mentoring, Math Club, and Psychology Club, can be improved with effective communication, in case of a cancelled meeting or meet. Other than that, the school's clubs are well supported by the administration and offer students an exposure to similar events in society. For example, by partaking in Forensics tournaments, I realized how my physical presentation and speech can intertwine to make myself an effective speaker ; those aforementioned aspects will be needed for college life(i.e debates).
All of the teachers bring technology into the classroom and apply real life to their topics. There are a variety of business, art, science and social studies classes. I am majoring in the business field so I took every course possible from a communications class to advertising & print media. The homework is light and can usually be done in class if there is time. The rest are exactly what we learned in class with questions that apply to what we learned but require us to think outside the box and stretch our knowledge a little further.
