Handles bullying effectively: Agree

We had one problem with bullying and the principal effectively handled it and we have not heard anything since.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
They do not have a support system set up to support students with learning differences.If your child needs help they tell you to get tutoring for $50 an hour.They have tutoring fun camp on Saturday mornings but you have to get invited.Your child can be failing, but not invited.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
They have a good program for character development. The posters are in the cafeteria and I see teachers talking about it with the children.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Some are good and some are not, they have a strict no change policy and will not change your child's teacher even if the whole class is failing and everyone is miserable.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
They still have a lot more homework than a normal public school, don't let the policy fool you.

I never understood parents who blame the school's policies and the teachers for THEIR CHILD FAILING. Franklin Academy is by far one of the best elementary schools out there. My son is in grade 5 and he has the best homeroom, Math and English teacher I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are there early and late most days as they see the potential in each child and do their very best to ensure the children are working up to their potential. My son is a little busy body and love being the class clown and they caught it within the first week and let him know in no uncertain terms that it will not be tolerated or accepted, thank God... The teachers are there to teach, not parent your children. They have a job to do and so do you. So instead of whining and criticizing the teachers how about you the parent take responsibility for your child and parent that child. These teachers are not babysitters. They work hard and they do a lot with the little they have Some of you are so used to chaos and disorder, the moment you have to follow strict guidelines you feel put out. Get over it, get over yourselves, its life, better yet go to another school next year. Thank you to all the grade 5 teachers for the great work you do with these children. My son grades have improved and I appreciate the fact that his teachers come in an hour before school starts to help those students who need the extra help. There is no homework, but there are probes and each student is expected to complete those probes and shows their work. The student intuitive concept is also a great idea, and why are the teachers expected to discipline your child for not behaving the way a respectful and well-mannered child should. Maybe the child needs to understand that they can't behave at school like they do at home, maybe they need to be taught self-control, again, that's not the teacher's job. To the teachers at Franklin Academy, I hope you guys getter better and stronger every year. God Bless

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
I've never had to see anyone for bullying my son, and I pray to God that I won't ever have to.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Their rules and guidelines are great and effective.


Develops character: Neutral


- a
I'm staying Neutral because some of the kids I see are just oh em gee. But again, the teachers should not be expected to raise your children, that's the parent's job, so why blame the teachers when the parents are the ones that are lacking.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
The teachers I have had the pleasure of dealing with are great at their jobs. Some teachers can become frustrated and that may show, but it's human nature I don't want to be forced to deal with a disrespectful child all day every day, that would frustrate me too.
