Once a Falcon always a falcon, Awesome school, awesome teachers and staff


Posted March 11, 2010

I have had kids at Franklin for the past 4 years. The teachers and staff at Franklin is second to none. They challenge kids at their level. I feel that this school is safe for my children. The school celebrates the students successes, as well as encourage to strive for more. Franklin truly is a great school.

Franklin Middle School offers excellent teachers with a passion for seeing students succeed. There are many activities offered to students and staff that help to build positive experiences in a wide variety of atmospheres. Students are held accountable for their learning, as are the teachers. School personnel are committed to ensuring only the best for their students.

The Franklin experience with our oldest child has been very disappointing at best. Very low expectations, lack of discipline, unmotivated teachers and less-than-accomodating facility for a middle school combine to account for the poor performance. I feel that children are passed through without consideration for their future. Franklin does very little to prepare children for high school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
