Franklin Township has a good school system and lots of opportunities to join youth sports programs and other activities, such as boy scouts and dance. In my opinion, these two things make it a good place to raise a child. In addition, I feel very safe in Franklin Township, which has extremely low crime rates. Also, Franklin Township is already diverse and is only getting more diverse with a recent influx of Chin immigrants.

Franklin Township is what I call home. A place where I got my kindergarten through senior education from. The public schools are superior with a very warm and welcoming environment full of diversity and promise for success. The teachers and staff provide the highest level of education possible and I feel exceptionally safe attending schools in this township. Commute time is less than two minutes for me and everything is within a close walking distance. Franklin Township is a family friendly place where everyone knows everyone and we all work as a small community to improve our schools and education, working environment, and our impact as a small community on the world and improve the way of life to raise a township of people willing to make a change for the better.
Franklin Township is a small enough that whenever I go to the store or I'm just driving around I will see someone I know. I actually like a lot. Everyone here knows each other and knows what's going on. There's a lot of popular hangout spots that friends go and hangout, which is very nice. I also like how there's a lot of land and it's quiet to be around.
