Horrible school. No infrastructure, pick up is a nightmare, school staff is rude and of no help. Children are left to wander the halls and offered no assistance, 11 year old 6th graders and left to try and navigate and compete in the lunchroom with 17-18 year old high school seniors. It's been two days and I am withdrawing my child tommorow, save yourself the heartache and stay away from this school.

Our children have had a wonderful experience the last three years. We have had great teachers, wonderful staff and a strong administration team. Looking forward to the next five years.

My son has been a student in this school since it's opening almost 5 years ago. Mrs. Elena Diaz, the new principal for the last year, has made a great positive difference. My only complain is that my son's teacher this year is not very good, compared to his 4 previous years. She is unstructured, inpatient and not very skilled on teaching. They need to ensure the quality of teachers, not sure if it's a budget issue as some people here suggest, but if next year we see a similar problem with the teacher, I will look for a private school. A gymnasium is being built and Middle & High School Campus is Opening in 2016.

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.
