My son has attended Franklin High since he started High school coming from another town. He has blossomed at this High School. He does so much better in a small classroom than a large one. I realize that not all students would benefit from this but I can only attest to the results for our own child. The staff and the teachers are the best. The JROTC program is the best around. I highly recommend this High School to anyone wanting a small school setting.

at franklin high school it is wonderful.the kids have the ability to learn what they need to know and be able to move forward.the music or should i say the band their is so amazing.it blows your mind.here at franklin high we have softball,basketball,track,volleyball,etc.like other schools in our area they have soccer and tennis,but we don't.those area the only sports we dont enjoy.our cheerleading squad there is wonderful.they have like 6-8 girls.the pep-rallies there keep you going.the teachers there are nice at all times,but hard on you whenever it comes down to education.they enjoy teaching the kids because it is their job.i think it is a privalge to be at franklin high school because it is a educational place to be.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (iLEAP) to assess students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 in math, English language arts, science, and social studies. The iLEAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the End-Of-Course (EOC) tests to test grade high school students in English 2, English 3, biology 1, algebra 1 and geometry. The EOC is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The EOC is a high school graduation requirement. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.
