Great school....superb parent involvement...(mostly) wonderful teachers (maybe couple who should retire) however with that said as an overall this school is awesome. We are more than thrilled to be a Franklin Fox Family.

There is a definite bias towards children of parents that are deeply involved with fund raising activities. I had to transfer my son out of Franklin due to continuous problems with bullying. Teachers and administration refuse to take action out of fear of reprisal from a parent that is heavily involved in extracurricular activities. Even after multilple compliants from multiple parents.

Franklin was a fantastic experience for my eldest child who graduated last June. He is now thriving at middle school. My younger two are also thriving at Franklin. There is a focus on arts, but still teaches the basics.Test scores keep improving. My kids keep learning and stay interested in the subjects.

Our school is fantastic! It has wonderful teachers who really cares about the children and their education and value each individual. It has survived cuts in the economy due to involved and generous parents. We love our school!

Franklin Ave Elementary is a fantastic neighborhood school. The student body is truly diverse (in terms of ethnicity, economics and academic ability), and the teachers seem committed to reaching all the kids. The parent community is very strong, raising money for arts education and other "extras." There are many fun, after school events throughout the year (fairs, etc.) that build community and celebrate the kids.

We feel very fortunate to be immersed in an environment with caring teachers and super involved parents. My daughter thrived in her 1st grade class with a teacher that treated each student individually and respectfully. There is a great sense of community at Franklin and when challenges arise due to budget cuts, there is no hesitation for parents and staff to put their heads together to work toward solutions.

My grandson graduated from Franklin this year. He got a perfect report card and got everything correct on the state standardized math test. He made wonderful friends, and his parents made wonderful parent friends. The teachers were caring and good. The school is bright and cheery. The activities were fun for all. He made use of the after school program, which gave him a good place to play with his friends for hours after school. The ladies who monitored the after school play were kind and conscientious. All in all, Franklin was a great experience. We are all so grateful he had such a wonderful school to attend.

This school is a wonderful environment for learning. My child was such a success in this school. I recomend this school to everyone near the neighborhood.:)

Although I do not doubt the experience of the parent who posted on May 31, 2012, I actually had a very positive experience at this school when my child needed some customized instruction. Our teacher was more than willing to consider alternative approaches that would cater to my child's unique learning style, and the principal participated in the discussion as well and provided our teacher with some very specific and thoughtful ideas. I think it's impossible to expect any more of a public school than Franklin provides. My only issue is that the class size gets way too big in fourth grade, but that is a problem in all urban public schools in CA that can be blamed on state regulations and fiscal problems, not LAUSD and certainly not Franklin.

We are so lucky to have such an amazing public school option in our diverse neighborhood. There is a true sense of community at Franklin and my son has excelled in its learning environment. The teachers are top-notch and the non-profit parent group does an amazing job at getting everyone involved. If you are considering Franklin, sit in on a class or take the scheduled parent tour and you'll see for yourself how special this school is.

I work full-time and am a parent of a kindergartener at Franklin. I really appreciate how new parents are included in the school community - Friends of Franklin immediately reached out to us, and the teachers and principal provide lots of information and opportunities to get involved. Our class ranges from kids who can read already to kids who never went to preschool, and the teacher manages to serve all of them. We moved to this neighborhood to get into Franklin - it's basically impossible to permit in at this point - and the higher rent and smaller space are well worth it to be able to walk to such a great school and be part of this community.

As a very involved parent at Franklin for the past 6 years, I gave it 5 stars solely because of the excellence of the teaching staff and because thankfully, there is a handful of the same conscientious parents every year who rally the rest of the school and community to make all the money for the programs that have been cut and we so desperately need. But as far as the principal....she is an Lausd robot and seems only interested in her standing within the Lausd elite, and possesses only a superficial understanding and compassion about the real needs of the students and parents alike.

The parents, teachers and community work really hard to make sure that Franklin is a great school. It's frustrating that it feels like such an uphill battle just to have a decent neighborhood elementary school for our kids, but I'm so grateful for the extra mile that so many go to make sure Franklin is a wonderful place (no thanks to the LAUSD). In just the 5 years that our son has been at Franklin, we see tremendous improvements. It's getting better all the time.

Franklin is a wonderful school. Our child is reading and writing above grade level, and he loves to go to school every day. He knows his education is important because he sees so many parents at Franklin who are involved at school on a daily basis, partnering with teachers and administration. And it's just fun: FAME Science Night, the all-school Talent Show, the Fall Festival w/ Pinewood Derby, the list goes on.

If your child fits into the box of a factory model curriculum, then you will have no problems at this school. If you are concerned AT ALL about starting your kindergartener, or waiting a year, WAIT! This school WILL NOT retain your child even if you feel it is in the child's best interest. They will give you every excuse of why, but will not disclose hidden politics behind the decision, which is likely due to government funding issues. If you feel your child may have learning differences, DO NOT count on this school to be your child's advocate. You will have to force them to evaluate by filling out the requests yourself so that they are required by law to provide it. This school failed my child. We now have no choice but to go to private school because of their incompetence.

We love Franklin and feel so lucky it is our neighborhood school. It truly feels like a village here, families, kids and parents all so nice and HAPPY, it shows how well the teachers are doing their jobs. The school has a wonderful feel and my daughter comes home so happy every day, teeming with new things she learned but through play and enjoyment, so much that it's just part of her life. We feel so lucky.

My child permitted into Franklin through the SAS program in kindergarten (many schools don t offer that until after 2nd grade), and we have been very happy there. The school offers abundant music and arts education as well as the great Franklin Kids after-school program, and there are many fun extracurricular events (talent show, holiday song program, art show, plays, parents soccer vs. a neighboring school) and really fun fundraisers (after-school crafts, pinewood derby, Franklinpalooza). Parents and teachers work together to make sure the kids are engaged and excited about going to school. Check out the friendsoffranklin Dot com site if you want to get a feel for the community.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
