Franklin is falling behind and should take cues from better schools. I would much rather be back at Mt Washington Elementary and can see now what made that school above the rest.

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.
