Franklin Middle School has benefits of a larger school by providing excellerated classes taught by some exceptional teachers. Since the school is somewhat small compared to other cities in the state, the students benefit from the wonderful close-knit school community, probably projecting from the City itself. The principal is very active with the students. His compassion for these youth is evident. The PTO is very dedicated and involved and the after school and summer programs are exceptional. This school even receives the New Hampshire Partners in Education Blue Ribbon Award!
