Franklin Regional Senior High School Reviews

Overall, Franklin provided me with a quality high school education. I disliked the fact that for students in my year (2020) and above, + grades were nonexistent; it was only A, A-, B, B-, etc. Additionally, a 91 was considered an A- when for most other schools, a 90 is still considered an A. The bag checks after our high school stabbing on 4/9/2014 were largely ineffective and seemingly was put in place to make the school "look like it was doing something". Most teachers were amazing, but several graded unfairly and it was unfair for students taking the same class with a different teacher.

From afar Franklin Regional looks like a stereotypical high end public school, but within the walls of this high school there’s a loving community that sticks together through thick and thin. Because of the high attention in education and students’ wellbeing’s, Franklin Regional has a strong and young group of highly intelligent people.
My experience with FRHS has been overall very good. There is a diverse population of students with various backgrounds and cultures. At FRHS, it is very easy to make new lifelong friends. Most teachers really care about their students and are creative in their techniques to help students learn. One thing I would change is campus traffic. There are not a lot of parking spots at the high school, and in the mornings, traffic gets really backed up along the main roads. Overall, Franklin Regional is a great school with great faculty and great students.
