This school is terrible - Consolidated the campus to a location closer to Gilbert to try and poach Gilbert students for more funding. Over 30 kids in my son's class and now they need more students. Also 45 minutes minimum on the bus. I wouldn't send my dog to a training class with 30+ dogs, why would I send the most important people in my life to an over-crowded horrible school?
My kids have thrived in the disciplined environment at Franklin. My kids were happy there. I was disappointing my child was not admitted to the Jr High due to such high number of applicants. I feel the kids who have supported and attended the elementary should at least have priority to continue on the the Jr High. For this reason I will withdraw my other kids and take them to a charter school where they will be able to continue through the 8th grade.
After reading several recent reviews, I have to disagree with the parents giving a 1 star. The school has maintained its curriculum even with 30 students. I think the principal has done a great job with both schools and is very visible and approachable on campus as well as available to students and parents. As far as moving to the new achool, it will be a great move and well deserved for the students and teachers who work hard. Had you gone to the open house, you would have heard the principal state that primary grades and 8th graders would not be sharing bathrooms as they will be in two different areas of the campus. We were provided time to address questions and concerns at the open house. This would have been a great time for you to address these issues and get answers before submitting comments that you are not educated on. And as far as being run like a business, it is. A business to educate children and if you don't like the changes and the product you are getting, go somewhere else.
I used to like this school, but it has turned into an overcrowded low rent school. 30 kids in the class room is too many!
Overcrowded and operated like a business :-( Better off looking elsewhere. School is being moved closer to Gilbert to try to get students from a new district - why can't you focus on your current students - Now we will have 45+ bus ride each way to school.
This school is about as advanced as the telegraph. All students are expected to fit the box of the classroom - students who are over-acheivers are disregarded. We are required to send extra work in with our son because they do not provide work that challenges him. When our teacher inquired about providing work from the next grade for him, the principal said "no, he should learn that in the next grade".
This school is housed in a bunch of portable buildings with zero security. The campus looks more like a trailer park then a school. Now they are moving to an old junior high - good luck with your 2nd graders sharing bathrooms with 8th graders....
Once I rated as a 5 but since the new principal is that of two schools now, along with other factors leads me to a very low rating. Albeit the academics sector is top notch. However if discipline, a safe environment and moral integrity is of importance to you I strongly recommend you look elsewhere. The current administration has a huge disconnect. The principal would rather let a disruptive student with a long standing history of behavioral problems that seriously affects the safety of other students remain enrolled so as not to create waves and work. What an unfortunate and totally sad disservice to children.
Best School ever! The teachers care, offer tutoring and really strive to partner with parents. Just love by all!
No school is perfect, but this is an excellent school. The principal cares about the kids and that often times he is out visiting classrooms. My kids teachers have been great. I love that all the parents care about education and at the same time come from different backgrounds. I feel like Franklin NE is a safe and structured school in a postive way.
This is a fantastic school. Staff are very interested in the children and are very upbeat. A positive experience for the last 3 yrs. I have another child who started All day K and has adjusted nicely, something I was worried about.
Fantastic teachers! Great curriculum! The progress my kids have made is exceptional, and they love school
I can't say enough about this school. I currently have a 5th and 2nd grader attending. If it were not for the great education and overall positive learning experience this school delivers I would have chosen to homeschool my children. An A+++ school.
Franklin Northeast is a school dedicated to student achievement. The environment is well structured and students know what to expect on a daily basis. I would recommend this school to anyone.
This school is great! The principal and teachers work great together. That combined with parent involvement makes this school a great experience for everyone.
We moved into Franklin from out of state where our kids attended a private school. Needless to say we are very selective about our kids education. We have now been at Franklin NE for about a year and a half we are thrilled with the education our kids are receiving the education is on par with that of a private school.
While some people are stuck on the need for their kids to get a hug at school, I for one am glad to have my son at Franklin. The school does what it says it is going to do, and that is teach. Education is the number one priority here, as it should be at any school. I highly recomend it.
This is a fantastic school that provides a quality education. The teachers are very caring and regularly go the extra mile for students and parents.
The back to basics aproach to learning has really had a positive impact on our childs learning. We are highly impressed and would recomend this school to anyone!
