    "With its solid to excellent programs for academics and extracurriculars, Franklin HIgh School certainly has many of the elements of a great secondary institution. Opportunities for individual students to excel both in and out of the classroom abound. More strikingly, most of the students from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds find here a place to grow academically and find their paths to good levels of success. However, the recent history of turnover in school leadership may hamper other strong efforts. We'll see. Go Franklin!"

    "My child goes to Franklin High School and I want to know why the school does not teach students the proper way to type. It is important that students know how to sit for posture and also to know how to type without looking at the keys. I hope you will think about this and adjust the schedule for kids to learn the proper way to type."

    "I currently go to Franklin and I can say that I would absolutely send my kids here. I cannot recommend this school enough. While some of the schools in the district have average facilities and construction, the high school is relatively new and absolutely state of the art. The teachers at Franklin are very driving, passionate, and committed to their students, especially the AP/Honors classes. The extracurriculars this school offers are simply amazing. The music department has fantastic teachers and the drama program puts on fantastic productions. The clubs offered in the school are varied and diverse, and greatly add to the experience. Language clubs are offered for French, Spanish, and Latin, business clubs such as DECA and FBLA, clubs for Hispanic and Asian culture, as well as a nationally ranked and recognized Model United Nations and Model Congress club. Athletically, Franklin has a winning tradition, often at a nationally recognized level for sports such as cheer or track. Franklin is a lot more diverse than other schools. It's a lot more real here because you actually get prepared for the real world, not some idealized version where only grades matter and learning doesn't."
