I want others to know they really care about the students and their well being. What I like is that they go the extra mile when it comes to the students learning curve. The only improvement i would say is parent pick up

franklin school is striving hard to soar!! the new principal is working with staff and parents. she brings such enthusiasm -spirit- and knowledge to franklin school. franklin has had struggles in the past. I have been an educator for 36 years. im so proud of the direction our school is going. I love seeing the parent involvement. today we had a fall festival. everyone collaborated so the children could have this wonderful experience. we still have a long way to go - but at least we are on our way. we need to to stay on this positive path. I love the relationships I have with my parents. they are hard working and concerned. one parent I have known for over 10 years. I know have her third child in my class. what a delight. they are part of my family. I have faith that franklin will move forward. again the principal works tiredlessly to push our school in the right direction. she stays late frequently. her only agenda is to make franklin a wonderful place for students -staff and parents. the entire atmosphere has changed. I smile when I pull up and there are my students waiting to help me carry my belongings from my car. my principal's work ethic is infectious!!!!! thank you so much!

Teachers are doing their best with the limited resources and students are working hard. On three different occasion they announced they are having PTA and I go only to be told by security guard no pta another time no security guard on duty because of a notice stick to the door. I am disappointed I put put the effort and no one sent me a note to apologize. I was'nt the only parent. I am frustrated because our children are the future and I feel more should be done to give them a solid foundation to succeed in college and life.

We have some very dedicated teachers and a great bunch of students. I would like to see more parent involvement.

I was very sceptical about this school. My son is in 6th grade and he is an Honor Roll Student. His teacher worked one-on-one with him and boosted his confidence. It is his first time entering the Public School System and I'm proud of this school. This school was also selected the 'Blue Ribbon School' in 2003.

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.
