    "The school is pretty great social and academic wise. This school year we are getting some really challenging materials and the teachers are pretty tough. Im a freshmen in the school and its a really good school and lots of clubs that can help you with your college application for example Model UN and FBLA . This year all freshmen were forced to take freshmen advisory to help us adjust to the school. The only thing to complain about is the kids.. theres alot of problems with drama and skipping class with the kids that don't care. Made ton of friends !"

    "The school offers amazing programs for students to choose from and the teachers have a laser focus on teaching and helping their students advance to college. Yes, at times there is some drama but if your kids are smart, they will ignore the drama queens and focus on their career goals. The fact is that anyone can get a quality education at any school if they apply themselves. This school just happens to have an insane amount of resources available to help students succeed. That means, NO EXCUSES. The school is definitely doing it's part."

    "Im not sure who these people who give it 4-5 stars are, but this school did absolutely nothing to set me, or my friends, up for college. School is suppose to be about learning proper studies and have the teachers help you understand if you dont. Most of the teachers could care less if you learn or not. If I were a parent I would not recommend at all. By the way, it only got worse after they built the new school. The first week of school, there were riots and fights in the cafeteria. NOT a good social setting either. Do some research before you move into this area, please!"

    "As a graduate, I look back and see how Franklin prepared me for college. I'd honestly say I am comfortable in college. The only academic struggles are ones that are due to new environments (like having a lecture class with 300 other students). Personally, I enjoyed my time there and I look forward to visit some past teachers that have made such an impact on my life. The athletic program is magnificent. I've participated in the Boy's Varsity Soccer Team and I know plenty of others students involved in the many sport teams and no one was discouraged of going to practice. We wanted to be there because we made it something we love doing. The Performing and Visual Arts program, in my opinion, is the stronghold of the school (maybe besides the football team). Hundreds of students perform in the musicals, concerts, recitals, drama theater, choirs, dance teams and on top of this many students showcase themselves as capable soloists. The music faculty is outstanding and take it from a music major, they know their stuff. I'd say the music faculty at Franklin rivals faculties at Performing Arts High Schools. Overall, great school with amazing potential. I'd send my children there."

    "um the school is not that bad, its not the best school and it could uses some work. The teachers need to start paying attention to students. Students don't want to learn because the teachers aren't paying any attention to them. Teachers assign work, and don't care if the student understands it or not. All teachers focus on is giving alot of work and failing kids.Teachers need to spend less time assigning homework, but more time on their students. More after school hours."
