    "Although it is a public school, Franklin County can challenge you just as much as any of the private schools my friends attend. It allows you opportunities to excel, and many students have taken these opportunties. In 2009, two students were accepted to Harvard which is unprecedented in a community such as ours. Each year we have several National Merit semifinalists, and for a small community school, I think this makes our school any amazing school."

    "The academic programs are good but not great, and the teachers aren't willing to allow the students to get a good education. Music, art, and sports as well as extracurricular activities are good for students, but not as good as they should be among the other schools in Frankfort, or Franklin County,Ky. There's not really any use for parent involvment because no one follows through on the good things, or what the students are interested in."

    "FCHS is a high school that allows those who want to succeed to have the proper tools. If a student actually tries in their classes, attends every class and participates, they will shine through. Every single teacher does not have the desire to teach, but this is mostly do to their past experinces of dealing with students who are not willing to put forth any effort or dealing with the parents of those children. There are extraordinary teachers at this school who will go the extra mile for those who want to learn and succeed. Student wise there is a variety of different social groups, ethnicities, intelligence levels and monetary backgrounds. The teens that require extra discipline are attended to, but this tends to hold back the abilities of the good teens to do their daily and extracurricular activities."

    "I have found Franklin County High School to be lacking in numerous areas. The education is sub par and the faculty, with the exception of a few wonderful people, have proven to care very little about academics or the kids at the school. Far too much emphasis is given to sports and the coaches are given too much power."

    "I personally have not heard anything positive about this school. I think that the lack of support for the Track and Field team is awful. My daughter participated as an eight grader and I did not notice much support from the 'higher up' associated with Franklin County. Also, I would like to note that I have not seen alot being done to promote diversity within this school. What is being done to increase that? Could you please tell me what is being offered to the African American community or other nationalities for that matter? Where can I get the assurance that my child will receive a better than good education? What support systems are available? Education (scholarship) counselors? Life skills coaches, etc. I need to know that if my child needs assistance or support, in/for anything that she will receive the best that Franklin County has to offer!"
