    "Franklin looks great on paper which exactly what the principal is focused on. Meeting the individual needs of each student is not a priority. If a child is struggling, there is no assurance that he/she will get the a help that is best. There is tons of parent involvement which can be a good thing, however when the PTA seems to have more power than the administration, there is a problem. I am a Franklin parent, and also currently a teacher in another district. I see the differences. SMMUSD is a good district, and Franklin is known for being one of the best schools. I would think that the best school could put a little more effort into meeting the individual needs of students AND find an office staff that isn't known district-wide for being the rudest!!"

    "My son loves this school. He is an enthusiastic boy but when he was not happy at his previous school, he was able to tell me exactly why. I have not had one complaint from him since he started at Franklin. Standards are high, really there is academic pressure from the very start, and parents have to put in time at home to support their children's academic progress, and clearly that does happen at this school. I don't know what the fuss is about regarding the office staff. I have never seen them be rude or dismissive towards anyone. They are professional, helpful, they know what they're doing and they work very hard. If you're going to choose a public school for your child, this is the highest ranking elementary school in the Santa Monica district, higher by at least 100 schools than the 2nd highest. I do think that matters."

    "Not sure what the last review was talking about because there is amazing parental involvement in the school. Franklin does a great job at challenging each student to work their best and has been able to differentiate to meet both of my son's need. They also put a lot of effort at finding the right teacher for each student."

    "Due to the frequent moving of my children's mother, this is the first year of my two kids. I have been unable to reach both of my kid's teachers. This is what brought me to the office where the office staff were extremely rude and not helpful in the least. The principle is somewhat a professional but still lacks the authority to make a lot of important decisions. I would do your homework when looking for a school. The lack of parental involvement is the worst thing for the success of young students and Franklin Elementary needs to work in this area also."

    "My child has been a student at Franklin for two years. We have had a wonderful experience and are looking forward to another great year at Franklin! We are truly amazed by the dedication and enthusiasm of the teachers and find that the administration is first rate. For such a large school we feel a great sense of community."
