    "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."

    "Benjamin Franklin is a great great school!! I feel that it is really preparing me for college and what's to come in the future. However, I must warn, this is not the school to mess around in. As an honor roll student, this school is academically challenge and pushed me to my limits. However, with the right mindset and determination, Benjamin Franklin High School offers the best opportunity to challenge yourself."

    "You get prepared to go to college and there's a 50/50 chance you'll get a good teacher for the course you want to take. Offers a variety of courses, diverse campus. However sometimes it feels like the students run the entire campus and also the school is too small for the admission of so many kids a year."

    "As a senior-just-graduated, I can say that Benjamin Franklin High School was very difficult. As a college preparatory school, though, I feel that it prepared me for the worst that college can throw. I was part of the soccer team at the school and saw a state title and playoff visits in my time as a defender. The basketball team and the volleyball team have also had recent success, so the athletics programs are growing. Our school is among the most diverse in student make-up throughout the whole state, and attracts very smart and multi-talented kids. My final remark is to prepare and study, because this is a hard school, but if you put in the work, it has a very positive outcome."
