The teachers are outstanding and the academics and are great. There are also so many extra-curricular activities to be involved in. However, the two things that I would love to see changed is the school's tolerance for bullying and more acceptance and open-mindedness of LGBT students.

The best teachers are at Franklinton. They care about the students and their future endeavors. The teachers are encouraging and really makes a difference in the students lives. I love this hig school and the teachers dearly. I also love the principal. She is a very nice, fun, loving person all the way around!
I suffer with A.D.D and have had alot of trouble through school my whole life (not for lack of trying). Trying to cope with their school work and the overall lack of caring of most of the teachers really took a toll on me. If school has always been easy for you, you will most likely do well, but if you have ever had any issue with learning at all, do not expect them to slow down for you. They care more about their school's appearance than how their students are actually doing. Every year I had a problem with teacher who either did not care in some form or fashion or there simply was not a real teacher at all. The only good thing about that school is they have a good amount of clubs and sports you can play and the campus is nice. you'll only get recognized for anything if you are "popular" or the town already knows you because they do not care to get to know you otherwise. If you are anything like me do not expect to get fair there.
