I like franklin because it’s a small school and everyone gets to know one another, in a way everyone is the popular kid. You also get to have a little family there and everyone has a hand out for one another there. Even if you might not speak to someone every day they would still help you out. At Franklin Military there are no thief’s and it is a bully free zone. It is different from all the other schools in the district and that is because the preparation they send you off with to college or into the world. Over all it is a safe and friendly place where your voice can be heard and you won’t have much to worry about. The only thing I would change about the school is the building, although nothing terrible is wrong with it it’s really old. I wouldn’t change anything else I would just add sports teams.

Franklin Military Academy is a good school. The clubs and activities are great. At Franklin Military Academy they make sure every student feels involved. You never feel left out. They have the right amount of discipline so everyone feels safe. Bullying is nonexistent at Franklin. I believe that is due to the amazing staff. It is overall a great school to attend.
I have attended Franklin Military Academy for one year and it is an overall great environment. The entire school has a forward thinking and driven mindset. Every student is prepared to do what it takes to grow and become functioning adults and achieve their dreams. The teachers challenge the kids to become more intelligent and responsible students and it pays off in the long run. There is nothing I would change about Franklin except that it is a smaller specialty school and therefore has no sports teams.
