Franklin Towne is a wonderful school! My daughter is a junior this year. Her first year there she thought it was very strict. She has come to understand the rules are in place for all good reasons. Children go to school to learn in a safe enviroment. That's what you have at Franklin Towne. I am hoping my son has the opportunity to attend Franklin Towne beginning next year as a freshman. I'm sure he to will love it as much as my daughter Michelle.
The administration backs the awesome teachers to educate the students. Perfect.
I think FTCHS is the best high school in Philadelphia. I am so happy my son who is a senior went to this school. The teachers and staff are really wonderful. They have so much spirit. I really wish that I could have gone to a school like FTCHS when I went to school. All the students I have met are great kids and they really seem to like their school. You don't see that everywhere. I have my younger son in the elementary school (4th grade)now and he is doing so much better then in his old school. Keep up the great work! It's definitely working!
I love Franklin towne because not only is it the best school in my neighborhood, i love how everyone knows everyone and all the staff members know each and every student by a name basis.
Very happy with FTC. Our Son cannot wait to go to school. How many high school students can say the same? that speaks volumes
What can I say but fabulous. The Staff/Faculty at Franklin Towne Charter are wonderful. The communications between teachers and parents are wonderful. Franklin Towne Charter is one big family and are we happy to be a part of their family. Our son is a 9th grader this year and the education he is receiving is simply the best!!!! The students at Franklin Towne Charter are truly awesome. We cannot say how blessed we feel to be involved with such a great school and great people. Thank to you all for your hard work and your dedication.
This is a great school that cares about each kid that attends the school. the teachers really care and help each student achieve there best. A truly great school with various activities for the students.
I love Franklin Towne for its great teachers, athletic program and all around 'family-like' Atmosphere. I have had 2 sons graduate from here and my daughter will hopefully be starting her Freshman year in September 2010. I cannot give enough kudos to all the staff !!!! Everyone there has worked hard to help the academic improvement and it shows by the increase in the PSSA scores each year. Keep up the great work !! I also have a younger son in kindergarten who hopefully will carry on the 'Figaniak Tradition' and also attend this Excellent School.
FTC is an amazing school! My class really was like one big family and all the teachers and administartion really showed a love and care for all of us students. I even talk to some of my former teachers while I'm in college and they offer to look over things for me. I love FTC so much!
I am a teacher at Franklin Towne. I'd always wanted to be a teacher, but after teaching for two years, I left the profession. Teaching realy wasn't what I had hoped it would be. For three years I worked in another field and loved it, but I still had the itch to teach. Franklin Towne called me and the second I sat down for my interview I knew that this place was special. I have been teaching here for two years, and it just keeps getting better.
The kids come first and the faculty and staff are supported by the administration. We get to make a difference and that is very empowering.
It can be a little ridiculous on the rules but, I would not want my child at any other high school. It is truly a great school and they make sure each and every child gets their work completed. This school is an excellent prep school for college and helps me out a whole lot knowing that I have to get both of my kids prepared for college. There are many great activities and your child would adore it there.
What an absolute miracle this school is! Words cannot express the change we have seen in our Granddaughter, since school started.
I am so proud to be part of the Franklin Towne Family. I have had Two Children Graduate from our school. My daughter was able to get a full scholarship to Kutztown University because of the wonderfull education she recieved.The counseling staff does everything in their power to give every student all the help to have a succesfull future. My son has a comprehension problem. The administrative staff along with the Special Education Department really cares, they worked to prepare him for the real world. I now work at Franklin Towne and I feel its the perfect place to work. I am truly blessed to work at FTC.
I love my school because it offers many amenities that other schools don't offer in the country, not to mention we have almost every sport and club possible. Besides the all of the fun things we do at franklin Towne, the academics are just phenomenal.My appreciation is indescribable!
Franklin Towne Charter is the best school ever.The teachers and staff are wonderful.
I love Franklin Towne cause of the help all the teachers have given me for three years. And for the education which my son has received since he has been in there..and they are always willing to help me with anything which comes around with my sons education
I love Franklin Towne Charter High School because of the wonderful things that has happened to my daughter.. My daughter was a shy and very much in a shell when she graduated from grade school, her self confidents was low. he teacher's, the staff have been the greatest. My daughter is out going, she is a member of a sports team, is a member of two other clubs and truly loves school. I will never be able to praise FTCHS enough for the time and effort they put in their students
