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.

In general, I love Franklin Township! The school system is great and there are a ton of entertainment and housing opportunities. I have lived here my whole life and plan on coming back after college.
The school systems are really great. Very helpful to their families. Every year before school starts back up they have a Back to School Night where kids can go and get free school supplies if they are in need. Franklin Township Youth Football program is pretty amazing. All kids get a fair amount of playing time, unlike some of the other towns we have played in.
