School is very safe, rigerous education, FANTASTIC music program. The uniforms (slacks and collared teeshirt) are wonderful. We moved to GA to a shool with no uniforms and we constantly deal with issues of not having the right clothing. The teachers, however, are WAY over the top with discipline and are not likely to work with you if your student has any special needs. If you don't conform, their well-worn excuse is to take your child our of charter school and back into regular school.
We have been at Franklin since my child was in K, and is now in 5th. This has been a positive experience for all of. The school offers opportinuties for you to continue to be a part of your childs education, by being a volunteer for the different committees. By doing this our children are able to see that we are proud of their school, and therefore they too take pride in their school.
Wonderful school all around. We feel so fortunate to have found Franklin! Our son loves his school too.
This is our first year at Franklin Academy. Our son is in 5th grade and was at his previous school since Kindergarten. He was very upset to move to a new school but after the first week at Franklin he told us that he should have transferred here years ago. He is so very happy and the students and teachers welcomed him with open arms. We are currently waiting to hear if our 1st grader and 3rd grader are accepted for next year. Great school and staff.....
This was our first elementary for our first child so my experience is limited. The academic programs seem to be good - many projects and constant homework although I think there could be more. Facilities have been limited but with the HS being completed they have more space for other activities. As this is a charter school the lack of buses and the drawing of students from all over the area is good & bad. Very diverse but I think it limits parent involvement in that it isn;t a 'community' school.
We feel very blessed to have gotten in to Franklin Academy last year. I have a 1st grader and a 5th grader and they both love 'their' school. We love that the school teaches children at all academic levels; dividing them into different classes according to their ability. This method, even in kindergarten, allows students to be challenged no matter where they are academically. It is very much a family atmosphere and we feel confident leaving our children in such capable hands. The teachers are incredible and the parents are excellent! The band program will blow you away. The discipline methods are stringent but needed in this day and age. We couldn't be happier!
My children have been at Franklin Academy since the first day it opened. I am very happy with the education and close attention that my children receive. I would highly recommend The Franklin Academy for any parent and student.
Franklin Academy is awesome! I have a 2nd grader and a 4th grader and this is our second year with Franklin. The teachers are very dedicated and I have watched my daughters make dramatic improvements in their academics as well as social interaction. The parent involvement is outstanding. I saw teachers who had to (very reluctantly) turn away parent volunteers for a field trip last year. A good problem to have indeed! It's tough to get in, especially as word of mouth spreads and parents tire of the reassignment shuffle with the public schools. We especially liked the fact that our daughters can go there through 12th grade, even if we move outside the county! Definitely something to consider.
