Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

1 I am very worried about the security of the children in this school,my wife found my neighbor's child out of the school crying when she asked what happened he sayed that somebody from the school told him to wait outside because there's not help period( child was outside in the cold without supervision because his mother already had left). 2 I don't know what's coming on with the healthy food all they have for lunch is saucy and too greasy and sometimes even spicy not good. 3 every other school has an end of the year show every other school in kearny but this one. ((no class trips to anywhere either).

This is an excellent school and pleased with the results with my children. They have learned and are willing to learn either by choice or by seeing others doing well and trying hard which influences them to do the same.

The school staff from custodians to administrators are caring and dedicated to the students. The PTA is fantastic - not a clique - as others may think. If you want to be involved, you will be, if you don't you will stand on the side and complain. Simple as that. My children have received the best education possible at Franklin School.

Most of the teachers in Franklin School do care about the kids. I do agree with the parent that posted about the PTA being a Click. Even if you wanted to get involved they do not make you feel welcome!

This school has some very fine teachers but there are some who do not like to work. They're too much into the union and don't do what best for the kids. Some teachers go above the call of duty and try to help the kids and raise money, but others can't be bothered. There are too many kids in this school. All the Portuguese bilingual children in town attend this school. The PTA is a clique. They do not like to include people other than those born and raised in Kearny. They only like their ideas. Not too many parents are involved because they are excluded by the PTA.

My children go to Franklin school and I think the teachers are great. They work very hard to teach your children everything they need to know in order to move on to the next grade. The PTA is great, they work together well,and do many thing to help the children get through the school year. I love this school and so do my children. We would not change anything about it.
