We had to move out of state, and my children were very sad to leave Sloan. The school really has a sense of community and offers extra-curricular programs such as performances, 5th grade yard sale for younger grades, whole-grade activities for holidays, field trips, field day, museum programs, numerous assemblies that the kids really look forward to. The principal knows all the kids by name and is very approachable and responsive. The majority of teachers are top-notch, and very caring and work on building character of the students in addition to academics. Also Sloan is welcoming to new students providing special opportunties for them to meet other new students and become interegrated into a new school.... having experienced a mid-year transition I really admire Sloan for offering this it shows alot of thoughtfulness to the social-emotional needs of students.
They can be the richest, most educated school in the state but if they can't stop the bullying then the school is no good in my opinion. Too much bullying allowed to go on here and nothing ever gets done about it. I give the school a D+
I am very impressed with not only the quality of education that Sloan offers, but also the level of 'caring' they extend to every child. In addition, the school is very involved with the community and offer a wide variety of activities that allow the children to be well-versed in a variety of areas. The teachers are excellent about keeping in touch with parents and staying on top of the the education of their students. Very impressed and happy with the Franklin Regional School District as a whole.
The building is wonderful and very kid-friendly. The majority of the teachers have been techaing for many years. The school used to be very welcoming of parents; however, the current principal changed many of the school policies and now it is not so easy for parents to be part of the daily activities at school. One of the counselors, Mr. Kelly, is very competent. Overall, Sloan is a good school but could definitely be better.
