As a grandparent I think I might be a little more critical than a parent but I think Franklin is a terrific school. My granddaughter has had excellent experiences and wonderful teachers. I am really pleased with the interaction between the teachers and students. My granddaughter's first grade teacher was excellent and her entire class was well prepared for the second grade. The school staff encourages parent and family involvement with the school and keeps the family informed of the students progress and activities.
My daughter is in Kindergarten this year and she has really fallen in love with her teacher and princepal. I really like the way the school is designed and the way the teachers seem to care more about the students than anything else.
We moved here from Portland during the middle of the 2002-2003 school year. My 5th grader was having trouble in math, and in Portland they had no title 1 resourses for math. All of their title1 monies went to reading. When we got here I talked to the school and to her teacher, he saw her struggle and put her in title1 math... Thank You
