lack of discipline, lack of parental involvement, poor attitude by students, little to no school spirit, poor leadership, overworked and tired teachers. my oldest went to FES because we were redistricted there. after attending her grades dropped significantly and her whole attitude went from positive and upbeat to downtrodden. My youngest will be starting kindy next year - in a different school. the schools scores are so low you can opt to attend another school, and i will not hesitate to do so!

I feel that the principal is doing what needs to be done to turn this school around. Upon entering school this year my daughter learned a lot more than I expected she is reading simple chapter books and will be entering the first grade. She is an easy learner. However she would not have come this far with out a well experienced teacher who knew how to get the job done regardless of the disruptions, negative attitudes and misconduct that she also had to deal with in her classroom on a daily basis. Although my child is very strong willed and independent. I never thought I would see a day when her attitude became cold and harsh I am sad to say this is one behavior I feel she picked up while at FES.

My 6 year old son was having trouble adjusting at another local school. I transferred him to FES and he did great. The principal, teachers, and other staff were so supportive. They also helped his love for school grow.

I think FES is a wonderful school with lots of potential. The only problem I see at that school is the behavior of some of the students. I would like to also see more parent involvement.

My husband and I were students at Franklinton Elem and my daughter attend the school also;now I have a son there. Franklinton Elem. school is a small school but the teachers get the job done. They try to show each child how special they and how important it is for them to get an education. I love this school system so much that I am working towards a degree in education in order to become part of this staff at Franklinton Elem.Veronica C.

This is a school that I transf. my son to from YES because of the principal and the involvement of the teachers with students. Not only are they proactive in helping the students obtain an education but they are willing to listen to the parents.
