Franklin Elementary School 4

My two children have been attending this school since 2012/2013 school year. It's a good school with good students. My kids have found great friendships and have really enjoyed their teachers. I really like how they separate the assembly's by grades so that the auditorium doesn't get overly crowed w/parents seeing their children perform or accept awards. The parent/teacher communication is excellent as well. I would communicate w/my daughters teacher via email and it helped w/both our busy lives to be able to address whatever issues came about. The school also tries to put in several educational field trips a year which parents are more than welcome to volunteer. Overall I am happy with this school.

Franklin is a great small school with a family community feel. My children have had highly qualified teachers who care about their students. The campus is cute with a outdoor feel. Great views of the mountains. Nice school library, new auditorium and good play field.
