When it comes to protecting children from bullying and fighting this school is almost a gladiator school. The child who is bullied is punished as well. District policy states that even if a child is defending themselves they are punished as well. So to avoid getting in trouble the children are taught to let the bullying continue because if they do anything besides report the situation, they are punished as well. Also once it is reported very rarely anything happens to the bullies themselves.
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.
