Loved this school! Pulled out because we moved and can not find another one like it here in California. Children got an excellent education way above the other 'public' schools.
We'd heard good things about this school but were sorely disappointed when we went in to find out some information. There is sadly, an air of 'we're better than other' here. Sorry, but no thanks. That's not what I want my children learning. They should know that all children can learn and it's important to have high expectations for everyone.
This school strives to give a well rounded education for every student. The basic skills of reading, writing, and math are the main focus, especially for the first few grades. The reasoning is that if children can read well, they will be much better able to learn in all other areas. Patriotism and good character are also a fundamental part of the school and have been integrated well.
This is a great school. I have went to Ben Franklin since 4th grade to 6th grade. I am in high school now and the principles the have taught me there have stuck with me till now. It is a great school...however I would have liked to have more extracurricular activities.
This is a great school. I'm impressed with the Spalding program. My three children are doing very well. Safe environment. Positive values taught. Children should start in Kindergarten, later start gets more difficult to catch up. Active parent involvement.
Franklin is a good school for the academics and discipline (finished homework). Some of the teachers there are awesome. The clothing attire is sometimes a little bit strict, but it is a good policy. Teaches great study habits for the future (high school). Great school if you can start your child from kindergarden and follow through the program.
Franklin has lots of structure to it and the kids are well behaved. Also, Franklin has great special ed/resource teachers.
