    "The environment is overall welcoming, and students are offered many resources. However, the one small issue I would want to fix is the new phone policy that only permits phone usage before school, during lunch, and after school. I understand there are reasons, but most students find being able to use a phone for school purposes useful."

    "Benjamin Franklin gave me the challenge and rigor I was hoping for. I believe that is very accurately preparing me for college. The workload could be damaging to my mental health at times, but the pros outweigh the cons."

    "While attending Benjamin Franklin High school I enjoyed my experience. I indulged myself in a supportive academic environment and the sports that were available to me. I would recommend school to anyone who wishes to enjoy school or wants their child to have a great high school experience."

    "Being a student at Benjamin Franklin is difficult, without a doubt. However, it is all worth it when you realize through self-evaluation essays how much you have grown as a person and as an intellectual. What sets Franklin apart is its diversity; meeting different types of people with different perspectives and lifestyles gives us students a glimpse of the real world and teaches how to thrive in complexity and uncertainty."
