Miss Dunn is still the greatest of all time. Stay in school cause the real world sucks.

How come instead of cinnamon rolls we get actual rolls with some glaze on them? This is an outrage. Also, Mrs. Dunn is the greatest teacher ever.

We are a 9-12th grade, not 8th. We have taken great strides with construction, new administration, and teachers. For a poor parish with little support I rank us 4 out of 5.

I've taught at FPHS for one year and i must say that the children are willing to learn, its just they don't provide them wit the proper learning environment. The halls are cold and they get on to the children for wearing clothing to keep them warm. They're SUPPOSE to be fixing the school but the things they're fixing isn't helping bring up the test scores.

I graduated from fphs in 06, and i never felt like i was behind in school. I went to lsu and ulm and never had a problem keeping up in school. All this school needs is a little help. If people would stop being so closed minded and help, i think we would have a chance to be one of the nicest schools in Louisiana.

We might not be the richest school, we might not have fancy cars to drive, and we don't even have good text books. But we do try our hardest to improve our school quaility. The only thing different about us are the grants we get.

This school is not a great school to put your child in. Why? Because this school has no money. The text books are out of due. This school need some serious help fast. Say for instance... when your child graduates from this school and goes off to college in the fall... they will not be able to compete with other kids different from this school. So I advise you not to put you child in Winnsboro High School now known as Franklin Parish High.

The one thing lacking at fphs is the parent involvement. There is new leadership there and the children are in a great enviroment. I have been please with the school and my son just graduated from FPHS.

I am a Sophmore at FPHS, and it is really a wonderful school. People think that FPHS has no good teachers and no good students. The teachers are doing a wonderful job, and the students ara a great student body. WE are working hard to improve the repetition that we have gotten fdrom the public. We are a wonderful school and the administration is wonderful! So keep up the great work and zoom on!

Franklin Parish High School is a great school. I've been here for 2 years and the school atmosphere is like being a member of a big family. No social classes, hardly no fighting, and great educational opporotunities. The parents have no idea what goes on inside the walls of FPHS. They think we attend a horrible school. We love our school, and they'd have to tear us apart to separate us.

This is the worst school to put your children in. It is run by politcals who run it like a prison and the school board allows it. I have 2 children there and they hate it. I am gonna have to sell my home and move to another district. My children are not getting the education they deserve and I have no choice or input, dont move here... it will be the worst decision of your life believe me I know!

Winnsboro High School, what is now Franklin Parish High School, is a great school to put your children in. The school has a great learning program and have a goal to make their children learn what they need to know by the time they get to college. They want their children to be fully prepared.

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.
