I have had 5 children attend thins school and this school leaves a lot to be desired. For the amount of school taxes we pay, we get little in return. They have cut after-school programs for the kids stating "budget constraints" The athletic director/football coach is more concerned about the football team and the team having what they want and neglecting the others sports. The cross country and track team don't have water containers and/or a tent to take with them to meets meaning the kids are out in the sun with no water other than what they can find at the other schools. I would tell anyone looking to move here and have kids attending this school to think otherwise!

over all the school is a wonderful place for children to learn and develop friendships with peers, extracurricular activities could imporve by including younger grades or more extensive in the offerings (not just sports)or open to more than just the students in a particular class. the school has good incentives to encourage student emotional and physical growth. parent involvement is encouraged in almost every aspect.

I believe that franklinville school has poor education programs. I also believe that the principal does not do the job like he should be. I think this school needs a lot of help.

There is a poor education system, not enough vacations and not enough racial difference.

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.
