    "Franklin Towne is a great school that helps prepare their students for a successful college future. With so many great teachers that are there all the time to help their students you are sure to be in a great educational atmosphere. Throughout the school year there are many opportunities to meet new people at the many events that are hosted. Although a great school i wish to see more diversity are for administration to be a little more fair to the students in the way they solve some problems that occur throughout the school."

    "Franklin Towne Highschool is an amazing school given the area it is located. It is within the Bridgesburg Arsenal and so it somewhat restricted to expand and do activities as permission is needed with the Arsenal first. However besides that every year there is improvement whether it be through addition of more AP classes or the addition of clubs and leadership programs for students to work together and discover themselves."

    "I'll start off with the positive things first. The number one thing I am most grateful for is the friends I met in school. They make my life special and I am so I'm grateful for that. Secondly the teachers are BEYOND amazing.They care so much about you and want to make sure that you thrive as a student and individual. They are also really funny and great people to just talk and joke around with. The relationships I formed with my teachers goes far beyond teacher and student, I view them as mentors and people I can trust when I need advice. However, the administration is the complete opposite.They partake heavily in favoritism. Athletes ,student government and mentors are treated better compared to every one else. NHS specifically are underappreciated for their service. While student government gets free cookies and 108 dollar prom tickets, NHS can't even get 12 sticking customized T-shirts for NHS officers. Even though whole of student government and mentors get custom shirts."

    "The goal of the staff at FTCHS is to prepare students for college and to ensure that they are surrounded by a kind and comfortable environment while they do it. The academics and college readiness is excellent at FTCHS because the teachers and staff make it known that their goal is to prepare you for college and adult life, they ensure you have all the knowledge you need to succeed, and they make it known that there will be rewards for those that do well as well as help and aid for students that have trouble in a subject. FTCHS has such a great environment for clubs and sports as well as safety, because the staff and students all support each other with through any hardship they have, whether it's at school or at home. Many people say this, but I feel in my case it couldn't be any more true; my high school was the best school a teen could ask for, and I am proud to be a graduate of FTCHS2017 !"
