Franklin High School Reviews
My high school experience so far has been amazing. The school is fairly large, holding 2,000+ kids. My freshman year it was a lot to grasp, especially being with three other grades of kids who much older than me. Ages would range from 13-19, which was very intimidating. The school in itself was very nice, the beautification as the years went on only got better. The staff and administration team are beyond helpful. Everyone is looking out for you and wants the best for you. The high school offers such a wide variety of classes, sports, activities, clubs, and electives. The list is endless, whatever you are interested in there's something for you at Franklin(there are a few exceptions but you get the point). Diversity is 6/5 stars! It is a great place to get an education.
Franklin High School is the best school. I love my school. This school has a number of athletics and social programs available for students. There are clubs and opportunities that allow the children to grow. With its solid to excellent programs for academics and extracurriculars, Franklin High School certainly has many of the elements of a great secondary institution. Opportunities for individual students to excel both in and out of the classroom abound. More strikingly, most of the students from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds find here a place to grow academically and find their paths to good levels of success. However, the recent history of turnover in school leadership may hamper other strong efforts. We'll see. Go, Franklin!
FHS is often stereotyped as a rowdy, unsuccessful high school filled with delinquents. Prior to my attending it, I feared I would end up in a completely unsafe environment. However, I learned soon that the case really depended on who you decided to befriend and hang out with. This school is filled with so many good people- people who are simply not afraid to hide their true personalities! The same situation applies to academics as well. As long as you keep pushing to have the best grades possible, you will definitely end up meeting good teachers amongst the sea of good and bad. I actually perish in some of my classes from the difficulty, and keeping my grades up as an all-honors student, some, AP-level classes, proves quite difficult, but I manage. Simply put, don't judge a book by its cover. This school is a perfect example of that metaphor.
