    "The principal has resolved the problem for the after school program in a very fast turnaround. I understand both sides. It's frustrated that parents did not know what's going on. The principal's primary concern is the safety of the children. She didn't feel that the vendor can give that so she gotta do what she's gotta do. Anyways, I'm glad it's over. We do have an after school program at Franklin now."

    "I love Franklin. The school is small enough that the principal knows every kid, and I know a lot of them too. When you walk in the building, you can hear music and the chatter of happy kids and see gorgeous art hanging everywhere. My kids are challenged and also have a chance to shine because there is something for everyone. The school is very diverse, both racially and economically and that is important to me. I count my lucky stars that my kids got into this school."

    "I respect everyone's opinion about this school. Everyone deserves the right to say what they want. However, if some parent intend to slander FFAC on the internet because the school didn't do what they want, that is wrong. Perhaps this parent can express his or her feeling about the school at the LSC or at FOF. I really like to hear the truth in person rather than over the internet. This is a small school with a great and close community. I'm new to Franklin community. My child just graduated from kindergarten. We've had very good experiences with the teachers, staff, and the principal. The parent involvement is awesome here which I think it makes a huge difference in terms of the school quality. I don't see that many not-so-nice kids. Many kids are very well-behaved. I observed that in the school playground when I dropped off my child at school every morning. All the kids seem very happy. I don't know any special need kids there but apparently the school must have done something right for them b/c the kids did pretty well on the ISAT every year. FFAC has a lot of potentials. Yesterday was my child's K graduation and it was the best graduation I've ever seen in my life."

    "Just to add on to an earlier review, there is also a large popuplation of Special Education students at this school. I'm not implying that there is something wrong with these students; but,it's something I would have liked to know when weighing school options. If your family follows a healthy diet please also be aware that this school is decidedly anti-health conscious. Candy, popsicles, sugary soda and corn syrup- laden "foods" are accessible to children on a daily basis. You can put in a written request that your children not partake, but I believe they throw those requests out of the window! Outside of the Fine Arts program, this a not a progressive place of learning."
