    "Given that Franklin has some of the best API scores of elementary schools in the area (955 in 2012), my expectations were high. We chose to live in Burlingame so that our children could attend the "good" schools here. However, we were disappointed. I think the teachers were mediocre. They didn't seem excited about teaching. Communication at the higher grade levels was nonexistent. Some of the children at the school displayed bully-like behavior. I question lunch and recess supervision. There are 23 children in grades K-3rd and 32 in 4- 5th. Teachers have no aids, and it seems they need them. I'm disappointed in the use of Everyday Math and don't feel the kids are challenged in math. Science is lacking, but this is a problem at most elementary schools. There appears to be one art teacher for the whole district, so kids get an hour of art every 1-2 months. I'm not impressed with music education either. Gifted students get 5-6 days of pull-out for the year, and nothing else the rest of the time. The principal is very kind and has worked at the school for years. But given the reputation of Burlingame schools and the high API scores, I expected so much more."

    "Franklin is an outstanding school. I have looked at most of the private schools on the Penninsula and I have not found one with a principal as good as Llsa Booth. She is exceptional. The teachers and staff are also outstanding. The community is diverse and devoted. You can't go wrong here."

    "The principal, Lisa Booth, is exceptional. Very open-minded, cares for students, friendly, personable... So far, the teachers reflect the principal and excels in teaching, guiding, caring. PTA involvement is very high. Can't get much better than this."

    "Most parents are highly educated and affluent. These parents value an education and tend to push their children to achieve. After some time at the school, I have to agree that the school scores do not necessarily reflect the quality of teaching at Franklin. This school is weak in science and math. My child's teacher just glanced over multiplication even though that topic was covered in the Star test. I had to teach my child the multiplication tables. I don't think my child would have done that well in the Star Test without the additional tutoring outside of the classroom."
