Franklin County has a very good academic program. They really keep the parent involved in the child's learning process. I moved to a nearby city and I am some what disappointed in the homework and teaching methods of my kids current school. Franklin County keep up the good work. Keep pushing the kids to their highest potential. It didn't kill me, neither will it them!!! Hard work pays off!!!!
