I love this school, but I miss the old principal. Mr. Field was great. Mr. Kegel is a good man, and I like him, but Mr. Field was wonderful.
First when I was looking at school I was looking for a school as if they where employable. Franklin Town Charter high school had goals for every student to grow, learn,be responsible for them selves learn to respect rules and others to focus on there future.The education that is given is state of the art.But The teachers are the best in our city they are old school.love to teach, care, takes an interest in every child.If my child seems to be slacking or they see they are having a hard time in something they a dress it right away.and work with them head on.The communication between teachers and parent I never had with other schools it makes me feel secure of my childs well being and education . My children have excelled so much and there confident about them selves .the connection between teacher and child is always leading to improvement in the child .The school is a very controlled environment.There is no child invisible.My children want to go to school I do not here. I dont want to go to school.This says alot My youngest who is in 4th grade would cry and beg to stay home when he was in his other school now I here come on mom I have to go I can not be late. This is his first year in the grade school I can truely say his grades are out standing and I know as years go by he will excell into greatness.My oldest will be graduating this year he has learned so much about himself learned to achive in every thing he sent his mind to. I higher Franklin town to help me raise my children the way I'am tring to raise my children and help me help them with hopes and dreams yes My children will move forward in life with the knowledge given .With Great Thanks and love for helping me raise my children me and my husband will always be dedicated to Franklin Town Charter High School and Grade School they are truely part of our family
I love everything about Franklin Towne! It's so great. We have an overwhelming amount of dedicated teachers, guidance counselors, administration, staff, and students. Teachers are dedicated to helping students succeed, and students try their best to achieve academic excellence. The guidance office is fully dedicated to helping seniors apply to their favorite colleges, and get into them. I am extremely proud to say that I attend Franklin Towne. I've had such a great experience going to Franklin Towne, and in June I will feel privileged to say that I graduated from there.
Frankline Towne Charter opened an elementary school this year and my daughter is attending there. She has a reading disability and this is the first of (3) schools in the city of Philadelphia that has made an attempt to help her and it is working. Her teacher is so patient and willing to submit the special testing that she needs. Overall the staff is supportive of the children and dedicated to improving their school. This is the first year and my daughter is in 4th grade now, that she gets up early to get ready for school and is happy about it. Thank you Franklin Towne for doing a wonderful job with the kids. My family appreciates it and I highly recommend this school to everyone. I am a Catholic School parent and we will never look back, Franklin Towne Charter Schools all the way.
Franklin Towne Charter High School provides a balance of excellent academics, high standards of behavior and promotion of extra curricular activities designed to include the interests of all students. There is something for everyone to participate in. The teachers and administration are kind, compassionate and always available for students and families.

The students at Franklin Towne Charter are awesome. We feel so blessed to be apart of this experience that words cannot describe. Thank you all for of your hard work and dedication.
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

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.
