My son is a Junior and he is doing great. He is in the NHS and is a Mentor. I'm so happy that he was accepted in Franklin Towne. He's been an A student since Freshman year and . The teachers are great and the old staff and NEW staff are wonderful. No complaints from this parent.. Keep up the good work Frankline Towne.
My son is a freshman and he absolutely loves it at FTCHS. I have seen such a change in him in the short time he has been there. He comes home excited about the day.The school has lots of rules and the kids seem to follow them. But they balance their strictness with fun activities for the kids and they eve have an incentive program. I am so happy my son was accepted to FCHS and look forward to the next few years.
My daughter is graduate June 2011 and i highly recommend this school because they are safe and no tolerence and my youngest daughter will be attending Sept 2011
franklintowne is one of the best school anyone can go to its safe its clean its no tolerence and the teachers are very helpfull.
The teachers are very good at this school. The administration has my concern. The administration should follow their on guidlines, "child find" to keep children in school rather than suspend/expel as if second nature. Handbook of rules for the teens but they are not followed by the administration. Rules are great, but if not followed by EVERYONE they are useless. Can not dictate that only the teens have to follow the codes. Accountability is for everyone.
I love Franklintowne, my daughter is doing great, the teachers are so helpful, everything in this school is in place to help a child succeed. I am praying my son gets accepted for this year as a freshman. A safe school, with teachers who care, and rules that work. Keep up the great work!
My son graduated from FTCH in 2009 & my daughter is going to be a graduated from FTCH in 2012. FTCH is a blessing, the teachers go above and beyond to make the children feel safe, trusted and and above all else worthy of a GREAT education. I would never and could never ask for anything more then the wonderful experience my children have had at FTCH. My daughter said it best herself just the other day...."Mom, when I have children some day their going to Franklin Towne Charter!"
This school is nothing short of amazing. Our Son is a Sophomore and he loves going to school. He is learning, he makes friends and the teachers are nothing short of amazing. The administration is doing a fantastic job! Keep it up. DO NOT listen to negative posts here., They are most likely written by the same person.... so it seems. It was most likely a student who did not follow rules and get in trouble and has an axe to grind.
My son is a senior and I feel that the school has declined over the 4 year period he has been there. Dramatically in the past 2. Communication to parents is almost non existent! I am glad that he is graduating this year. I don't think we could take another year of this school.
All of the positive reviews are written by parents of freshmen. For those of us that have been here and no what is missing, united, we are sad. Were is the pride that Franklin Towne once held?
I have a son who is now a junior in Fraklin Towne, my 3 older children also attened and i could not have asked for a better school for my children,i can not wait for my youngest child to attend. They offer the best of everything for your child to enjoy the best experience of any school!
All of the positive reviews are coming from the parents of freshmen. For those of us that have had children at Franklin Towne for more than 8 months, we know where the school was and were it is now. Franklin Towne has lost its heart. We need our pride back.
My son is a Freshmen at Franklin Towne this year. It has been a very good experience. I think the teachers and administrators have been doing a wonderful job. I could not be happier with FTCHS. It was a great choice. My son like school and adjusted well to the new school. Thank you to everyone at FTCHS for making this school great!
I am very disappointed wth recent events at Franklin Towne. The school has lost its focus. This would not have happened two years ago. Then the focus was on the kids. Now it is on the adults. We need Mr. Field back.
I am sad to say, that I too have seen a decline this past year. My son is a senior and we are happy and proud that he will be graduating from Franklin Towne. But, my son and I both feel like the school has lost its focus during this past year. In the past we used to hear such wonderful stories when he would come home, but now all we hear are stories about the kids not wanting to be there anymore. He told me that someone recently got in trouble for starting a facebook page about how much he hates the school and that half of the seniors joined the page as friends. Why would half the class hate thier school? Something has changed, it did not used to be like this?
To the parent below, since you have just transfered in, I am sure that Franklin Towne is great. But for those of us that have been with this school for the past three years, I agree with the parent below that, that the school has most certainly lost a step (as far as the adminstration). The teachers are the greatest!
In reguards to the parent who is bashing the new administration. My daughter transfered into FTC this year from a public school. It is the best move I could have done for me and her. Her grades went from just about passing to straight A's. As far as the principals of the school I commend them for being them selves and not just another stuffed suit.
As a parent of a senior I have seen changes and so has my daughter. The new administration although nice people are not managing the school as well as mr fields. The teachers remain constant-grest educators but the new admin has turned alot of the kids attitude around. I am glad I am done with this mess in june
We are very pleased with this school. Our Son is excelling there. The teachers and admin really care about educating their kids and it shows. Thank you very much FTCHS!!
As a parent, I think the school has lost a step in the past year. It does not feel the same. My child no longer comes home and talks about the school day. He used to. I think it is still better than any local PUBLIC school, but it does not feel like the Franklin Towne that I knew for the past two years. I think that the change in administration was a mistake and as a parent I am upset that we lost the progress that the school was making.
