I hate that school in would never forget how they treated my child different because of the color of he's skin and last but not least call the police on me because I was 20mins late picking him up from school.
School promises a lot but doesn't deliver on those promises. Chess not taught in classes. Little to no activities for k-2 grades. Most teachers with less than 3 years of experience. Staff mostly rude and two faced. The has no interest in science and don't report the science scores for lower grades as to promote a false school grade. Car pick up and drop off are nightmares. The school distances themselves from parents and do not promote parent involvement other than volunteering for lunch help or car line. Parents are not allowed to walk children to school . There are no park and walk up options. Franklin Academy is more like a fast food franchise as they are more interested in opening up more Franklin schools than perfecting the first one they open. In other words it is a business.
My son was very lucky to win the lottery to enter on Kindergarten on the first year of the school. First of all the school is separated by gender which turn out to be very beneficial for the students. They are able to concentrate better on the core classes and have better interactions in class. They do have time to interact with girls and they enjoy their playtime together. The teachers and staff are very caring, and the aftercare program is amazing the kids have so much fun (they do HW, too) my son complains when I pick him up early. Since it is a charter school, volunteer hours are mandatory and I do appreciate it because it gives parents the opportunity to be more active with the school and be active in your kids' education. I have ask several parents from different grade levels and I only receive great reviews from boys and girls alike. One of the most important things about this school is that they do not only concentrate on academics but also on building characters on our children. I cannot be more grateful for this school on creating such a great environment for the children to grow and learn.
