Great school, Principal Elena Diaz is the greatest. This is the third year for my kids in this school. The experience have being very satisfactory. Teacher always reachable thru their website and emails same day, school doesn't use filters to your emails, so you get answers right away. Also many resources thru the school website. Kids do around 2 to 3 fields trips to awesome places. Drop off and pickups of the kids its a bit long but very organize and save for the kids. The offer many different clubs for kids as after school classes or entertainment activity, they have a lot of fun while the learn. Cost is around one payment of $45 to $90 for one trimester. School system is boys and girls not together in regular subjects, but good part is they interact together in specials classes which are P.E., Chess, Art, Spanish, Music and Media. I recommend you read about this particular way of learning, you will get amaze. Finally one of the person clue in a Success of the school is the principal. This is the second year for Mrs. Diaz and the changes in the school are drastically different than before. This lady is always around watching behind everybody, you are going to see her in car lines, cafeteria, classrooms, walking in the halls... etc. Thank you! All team of Franklin Academy.

Where to start ::: The only reason the school is rated A school is because of the kids coming from well to do and educated families, otherwise this would be a C or D school. The teacher skill level is extremely poor. All the rejected applicants from other schools are hired. Most good teachers leave with-in a year. God forbid, if your child has a special need ...

I rate this school a 3. The neighborhood is great. The school looks nice on the inside. The children are from good families. The teachers try..but their inexperience is painfully obvious. The lack of facilities is disappointing. No gymnasium, no auditorium. Never heard of a school like this before. I'm lucky that my child is naturally bright, and can pick up the lessons quickly on his own....but if he was in any way in need of remedial help...I'd have to hire a private tutor. If you are considering sending your child to this school, you will most likely be impressed by the area and the outside of the building. You had better have a bright child or money for tutoring. It helps if you're Latin or Jewish also...your child will be taken care of very well.
