My 3 children have attended Franklin School since kindergarten. I am extremely satisfied with the education given and many of the teachers are very caring and good educators. The only complaint I have about the school is the cafeteria area is too cramped and lunchtime has never been an enjoyable experience for my children.

Great administration and teachers. The music program is exceptional. I would like to see some sport programs beside physical ed, but overall a good school with a principal and vice principal that are always paying attention to everything that's happening.

i have a child there and wouldnt recomend this school to any one for the taxes you pay to live here its not worth it . I will give them high marks for the standards they set but as for fairness to kids forget about it this is a poor way to run the school but if your stuck in the area due to one thing or the other we have no choice .. Feel sorry for my kid and others in area !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have two daughters in this school. I am very pleased with the teachers but do not care for the school. It is extremely outdated, poor room sizes, and extremely hot during the summer. The school is too small for the amount of children that attend this school.

My daughter is in 6 grade this year and loves her new teacher. The teacher seems caring. He doesn't feel it's necessary to give the student's ridiculous amount of homework. The school in general has done some improvements. Classrooms are overcrowded.

This was my son's first year in Franklyn as a 3rd grader. I have to say that he has been blessed with his teacher. She has shown that she cares about her students and builds a personal relationship with them not losing her sense of respect as a teacher. She's very fair in every sense. I am pleased with the school itself and it's higher authorities so far. I believe that every school has it's good and bad moments. The classes are a little overcrowded averaging 23 - 25 students a class. I strongly believe that teacher's aides should be provided to classrooms this size. However, considering where that Franklyn is located in an urban environment, I think that the school is considerably well. I can't speak for future days, but as of now, I have no complaints.
