I have gone to many schools and am very thankful to have ended up at Franklin. I have to believe anyone posting negative things on here has either never been to another school or is someone who causes problems and is upset they got in trouble. . Franklin is the kind of place where the teachers will go above and beyond to help you if you ask for it. There is a very active anti bullying program called avp. No school is perfect. There will always be problems because people are not perfect... adults or kids but Franklin is a pretty great place.

This school is a disgrace to the community. Bullies left and right, and no one should be subject to such an environment. I would never even think of sending my worst enemy there. It is such a disgrace to such a nice community. The teachers do NOTHING, not even if you are confused.The sports is PATHETIC to say the least. Two reviews below this one is a lie. Do yourself and a your child a favor, DON'T CONSIDER FRANKLIN, GO TO A BETTER ALTERNATIVE!

This school is very bad. NO one should be enrolled at such a poor school infested with bullies. On top of that, they are too cheap to have any sports for their students, for they say an hour of physical activity per day. Now, back on topic, this school is the WORST for your children. Also, the mascot, "Purple Devils," what is that? I do think they have a point in making the mascot "Purple Devils" is because the school is full of devils, that do not even know what the word "manner" is. No child should be subjected to such a poor school as Franklin

Franklin Central School is a Fabulous school in an amazing little town, all the teachers know your name and are willing to help you if you are having a problem in school and outside the classroom. The after-school opportunities are excellent, for being a small school we seem to be doing better then the larger schools when it comes to the sports department and the drama productions are always entertaining. We may not offer every sport imaginable but if you want to participate in a different sport they will help you get in that sport. We recently had a few kids participate in football at unatego. This school is quite different then the other schools in this district because we are like one big unit, both the elementary section and the high school. This school is perfect 99.9999% of the time, but hey no school is perfect all the time, but this school is better then some of the other schools in the county where there are drug bust in the school once a week or teens doing inappropriate things during school and can teach the youth of our school wrong things.

This school is horrible to say the least, teaching the wrong ideals and values! It is a fertile breeding ground for BULLIES, the problem even though a Law appears to go ignored and treated frivolous among management. My son had an issue with a classmate whereas he was "Punched in the face" by a classmate for NO reason, and the punishment which was handed down was a 2 day lunch suspension, and here is the real kicker, She was given hold on to your seats "Citizenship Award" WOW!!! Tthis should set a good example to all the "BULLIES" present and up and coming. From this we shall conclude that if my son retaliated he would have been in the running for that same award? NO, he would have received it himself! This very sensitive issue was brought to the attention of the Teacher, Part time Acting Principle and the Super Intendant. To date we have received NO response from anyone. It is unfortunate that such a beautiful town have a blemish bestowed upon it from the school. If we would have known we would not have invested in property in this quaint beautiful and charming town of Franklin, it is a shame the school is not as charming, along with the so called school administration.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
