The learning environment has made my children very successful in their studies! One of my daughters has maintained an over 3.0 GPA since 9th grade. It's a great school comparing to the city schools!!

My son for the most part likes his current teachers. My older son is now friends with some of the teachers he had over his four years.

My son has a learning disability and does not feel overwhelmed with the amount of homework and studying every night. He's given the right amount of work he needs.

Franklin Towne gives student incentives to do well. With these incentives, it keeps the students motivated with their school work.

I would like to say Thank you to Franklin Towne and Mr. Dougherty. My son is a freshman this year and had to go to a summer enrichment program for Math. He wasn't happy about it, but it has really helped him this year. He actually enjoys the class. Mr. Dougherty also taught my older son and he learned alot from him as well. He's an awesome teacher!
