I like how it's a tight community everyone knows everyone. The most known place in Franklinville is the Wawa, and you can find anyone there. The best part about Franklinville are the schools. The whole district alone is amazing, especially the middle and high schools. The respect that the students give the teachers and vice versa is stunning. All of the teachers do an amazing job teaching and they are a main reason why I love going to school and going to the classes. I can't forget how amazing our sports teams are. Everyone shows up to the football games, whether you like football or not its an all around great time. Franklinville is out in the middle of nowhere, but it's my home and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

lived here for 21 years -- country and quiet -- love it. I've lived in a more larger city for basically my entire life prior to moving here in 1997. My daughter attending catholic school in the next town over but the schools in Franklinville district are rated one of the best in the state of New Jersey. Delsea High School is also in our district and knowing at least one time is was ranked 14 in the state. Gloucester County Institute of Technology is the school our daughter attends and it is rated 23 out of the state. In short, the community is a quiet one, everyone pretty much knows each other. Families have resided here from generation to generation and whatever businesses were formed, they were generally family businesses to begin with and grew over the years. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
I really could not imagine myself living anywhere else other than Franklin Township. The diversity of this township can not be found anywhere else in my honest opinion. I was able to be friends with different people and network with a more diverse environment. As crazy as my high school is the fact that we can not even handle a simple game of tug of war during our pep rally shows how much personality we have as a whole. Even outside of school there is different groups of people and despite the differences there is a welcoming environment and a family atmosphere.
