Posted October 29, 2013

We are relatively new to Franklin and my child absolutely LOVES everything about it (after transferring in from another magnet school with a long waiting list). The references to the "high percentage of special education students" carries an air of aristocracy that is a little disturbing (... and no, my child is not a special education student). Although I'm not well-informed regarding the food menu (we brown bag it), I've been nothing but impressed with the principal and her staff. There's one thing I know for sure; I would cross hell and high water to get my child out of a school that I would rate one-star. Besides the fact that it would drive me nuts to have my child go there day after day, I'd consider the fact that there's a long line of kids waiting for that spot and parents that would love the chance to place their child at Franklin.

This school is undergoing major transition. There are some long term teachers, but the others are lower quality and it's a revolving door in term of who will be teaching which grade from year to year. Many student discipline problems and and misbehavior go unaddressed. The school culture is not the best. Large population of Special Ed students. Do not let your kids eat the food here. Principal closed Right at Home after school program without parents input, then hastily replaced it with a lesser known program. In my option on she is not up for the task. A plus for the performing arts teachers.

Great School! One of the Best CPS Magnets. Kids are doing great on academics and they are very happy. That's what I care about.

in my view from the school being there for a while the school needs better leadership via new principal & can use some teachers that care about all the kids not just some same goes for the principal

My daughter just started this year and is a 6th grader. She loves the school, all of the arts options and the staff. Everyone is so supportive and serious about the education of these children. My heart fills with joy that we have a found a school with a rigorous curriculum and ample opportunities for creative expression and critical thought. The principals are both AMAZING and really make this place special. They see parents as partners, not pests.

The principal has resolved the problem for the after school program in a very fast turnaround. I understand both sides. It's frustrated that parents did not know what's going on. The principal's primary concern is the safety of the children. She didn't feel that the vendor can give that so she gotta do what she's gotta do. Anyways, I'm glad it's over. We do have an after school program at Franklin now.

I love Franklin. The school is small enough that the principal knows every kid, and I know a lot of them too. When you walk in the building, you can hear music and the chatter of happy kids and see gorgeous art hanging everywhere. My kids are challenged and also have a chance to shine because there is something for everyone. The school is very diverse, both racially and economically and that is important to me. I count my lucky stars that my kids got into this school.

If you are so unhappy with the school leave and give that valuable seat to someone positive.

I respect everyone's opinion about this school. Everyone deserves the right to say what they want. However, if some parent intend to slander FFAC on the internet because the school didn't do what they want, that is wrong. Perhaps this parent can express his or her feeling about the school at the LSC or at FOF. I really like to hear the truth in person rather than over the internet. This is a small school with a great and close community. I'm new to Franklin community. My child just graduated from kindergarten. We've had very good experiences with the teachers, staff, and the principal. The parent involvement is awesome here which I think it makes a huge difference in terms of the school quality. I don't see that many not-so-nice kids. Many kids are very well-behaved. I observed that in the school playground when I dropped off my child at school every morning. All the kids seem very happy. I don't know any special need kids there but apparently the school must have done something right for them b/c the kids did pretty well on the ISAT every year. FFAC has a lot of potentials. Yesterday was my child's K graduation and it was the best graduation I've ever seen in my life.

Just to add on to an earlier review, there is also a large popuplation of Special Education students at this school. I'm not implying that there is something wrong with these students; but,it's something I would have liked to know when weighing school options. If your family follows a healthy diet please also be aware that this school is decidedly anti-health conscious. Candy, popsicles, sugary soda and corn syrup- laden "foods" are accessible to children on a daily basis. You can put in a written request that your children not partake, but I believe they throw those requests out of the window! Outside of the Fine Arts program, this a not a progressive place of learning.

This is an AMAZING school I'm in 6th here. The environment is wonderful, and Franklin has wonderful teachers and a great principal and a great new assistant principle! FRANKLIN ROCKS!


Posted April 25, 2011

Franklin is a great school!!! I would recommend it to anyone. I am a student and Franklin has wonderful teachers and a great principal, plus fine arts along with the normal subjects like Math and English! GO FRANKLIN!!!

My husband and I love Franklin for it's rich arts education and challenging academic curriculum. Attending an elementary school that offers both has given our daughter a wonderful well-rounded education. The school is the smallest of the Chicago Magnet schools with about 250 students total K-8 and is located in a lovely Chicago neigborhood with a coveted green space for outdoor activities. The dedication of the faculty and staff at FFAC on behalf of all the students is impressive and shows in the school's high marks on the ISAT.

The community at Franklin is what I love the most! Alot of schools today, especially in the public school system, lose that sense of a close-knit family like community. Everyone at FFAC, students, teachers, parents and faculty as always friendly and know everybody's name. It's a great personal touch and I am happy to experience it!

My friend teaches there and loves the students, staff and community of families.


Posted April 30, 2010

I love that it is a small school with families that get involved. The arts program is a perfect fit for my creative kid. But what is the best are the teachers. We have creative, intelligent and caring teachers. My son loves going to school each day.

Franklin has a tremendous teaching staff and offers an extensive education in math, read, writing, science and social studies at the same time as offering fine arts as core subjects!

I love Franklin because my children are being exposed to drama, art, music and dance on a daily basis in addition to the standard curriculum. As a result, our children are growing up to be well-rounded interesting individuals.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
