During my years at Franklin Learning Center I learned a lot. From getting certified in First-Aid, CPR and Medical Assisting to making lifelong friends and connections. The diversity in the school also taught me a lot about different cultures and learning where people come from. I had a good 4 years of high school! The only thing that sucked was the food.

I've spent 4 years at FLC and I will say this; I do not regret those last 4 years. I've learned so much, not just in the classroom but outside the classroom. The teachers are awesome and are mind opening. The atmosphere overall is great. In a place where you're allowed to be your true self. It's a very diverse school, which is amazing. It really gives you the opportunity to learn about the world around you and about others. There's rarely any bullying there, to be honest, and plus if you have any problems whether they are in the classroom or just personal problems of your own. they have a lovely counselor who can help with your needs. And lastly, this school is just a pretty nice school overall, good vides, with a pretty nice staff.
I think there should be more facility for the dance department, as a dance major there were over 90 members all together with only one paid teacher. Which was stressful on us and our teacher. Who not only had to teach dance but also take care of the academics of dance, costuming, show prep, and more. While other majors had two to eleven different staff members. Our studio was also falling apart at one time, nails coming out the nail floor and holes in the ceiling that often leaked, which you can imagine was dangerous. Overall I loved my high school.
