I attended Franklin some years ago, I'm in college now, when it was still located near the group homes called Mount Airy. My family and I were immigrants to this country and going to school was a new opportunity, a path way out of poverty. I can say from my experience at Franklin that the elementary school has shaped my life profoundly. It is in elementary school where kids build the foundation for the rest of their academic life and I'm glad I got to attend Franklin. I still even remember the school song; "We're here at Franklin, learning together. We have our friends here, sharing our lives. Music is ringing...."

My family and I recently moved to Minnesota from Arizona. I am very impressed by this school! Franklin does have a high Hmong population but my kids and I think this is great. For a change my kids are the minority and they really enjoy the different cultures in the school. It is very obvious that the teachers really care about their students and respect their individuality. My son came into first grade having difficulty reading and being very reluctant to even try reading. His teacher Mrs. Henkes has made him excited about reading and he is now excelling at reading and his other subjects. He loves going to school! My daughters fifth teacher Ms. Nippert, is also a wonderful teacher. She genuinely seems to enjoy teaching the class. My daughter just loves her. Franklin is a great school!

I am a student a Franklin Music Magnet and I enjoy this school very much. This school is very diverse. It has a great Gifted and Talented teacher. Franklin is known for its good manners. All though many people do not want there kids going to a school with less than 7% of white kids this school is still very nice. My previous school was mostly all white and after coming to St.paul and attending franklin I have has a great experience with more ethnicitys. I fit in much better at this school since I am asian/american. This school is a great school to go to if you need a school with more diversity.
