The teachers and staff know all of the students by name. The principals of both the grade and high school greet the students each morning when they enter the school. Each student feels their education and safety is important the the entire staff of the school. I have 4 sons who went to three different high schools and my youngest is a Franklintowne student so I have experience with the city high schools and Franklintowne is by far the best.
Franklin Towne is a great school. My children are really growinig there. The teachers, faculty and administration are all wonderful and really care about the kids. They are always striving to become the best school they can possibly be.
Franklintowne Charter High School of Philadelphia gives children a chance at a quality education in an inner city setting without tuition.
I love everything about Franklin Towne..Would not go to another school..They are always there for the kids. We come first..
Franklintowne is the BEST school, EVER! Both of my children go and LOVE it!Very friendly atmosphere, encourages learning!
This school is a great place for students to learn and be supported by everyone in the building. It's a haven in Philadelphia where students can go to school and learn a lot of information to be well-prepared for college. All of my students are excellent citizens, and are very respectful of myself and their classmates. These are only some of the reasons why our school is the best in the US!
It is a great school....the education and safety that this school offers are 2 of the most important things that any parent could ask for!
Franklin Towne Charter is a faboulous institution in regards to safety, education, community, student involvement, and place of employment. Everyone in this school truly cares and gives it their all; everyone meaning the students, faculty, admin staff, office staff, business office, facilities, technology staff, guidance, etc. It's a complete organization and the epitome of success and hard work.
My grandsons are getting an excellent education and learning things that will help them in their choice of careers
My son is receiving a fabulous education. The teachers are the best. The administration is outstanding. The students are respectful.
Franklin Towne is the most wonderful experience my daughter has ever had. She is freshman and is receiving the best education.
I love this school I am now a junior and going to this school it has been the greatest aspect of my adolescent life.
ive been at franklin towne for two years and i love it. it is a big school with not that many students so you get the attention you need and upon getting accepted you take a test to put you in classes on the same level as you. love franklin towne.
This school is amazing and the teachers are awesome. Everyone should go there!
Franklin Towne is great! I am amazed at how well this school runs. It is like getting a suburban-level education.
I do not have the words to express my joy with the staff of Franklin Towne. The CEO, Mr. Venditti, and the Principal, Mr. Field are two of the kindest, most caring people (not just administrators) that I have ever met. Students graduating from Franklin Towne will be prepared for thier future becuase of the work and expecations that they are given today!
wow what to say about franklin towne i graduated in 2008 and i cry every time i watch my prom video! i loved that school so much...ftc staff are great unlike my freshmen year where the old staff didnt care! i miss all the teachers! i didnt care how strict they were i loved it their and would never trade it in! my class scored in 2nd place for the pssa in 2008 i love you ftc
I am an alumni of this school, and it has definitely prepared me for college. I have done extremely well in college, and now, I am a senior at Holy Family and am applying to graduate school. When I graduated in 2005, there were not as many after-school activities as there are now, but it was great. FT was like a community. The AP classes were difficult, and the teachers were amazing!! I would recommend this school to anyone who would like to learn!
I am a FTC alumnus. I graduated in '08 Not only did the school teach me how to be a good student in the classroom it taught me how to be a better person outside of the classroom. I went off to college and i became honor student.
This school is so academically horrible. I graduated with mostly A's and some B's, and now I'm in my 5th semester of university. Back in high school I studied literally 2 hours per week, and did the assigned homework. All of a sudden, I jumped into the deep end of the pool barely knowing the doggy paddle. My first two semesters were terrible. I could barely pull good grades. I had 4 Bs, 5 Cs, and 3 Ds. This is now with 20 hours of studying. Franklin Towne is too easy for any college bound person. It wasn't until my sophmore year that I began pulling good grades. I had nothing below a B- and two A's. If it weren't for my incredibly awesome profs, I would have failed out by the end of my freshman year. Franklin Towne is however definitely a better alternative than Frankford.
