Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Mrs. Lincecum is the best English teacher I have ever had the privlege of having. She helped me to be prepared for college and the work load that was to come from that.

Because the school is not huge, there are many opportunities to partcipate in more than sport or activity. Children don't get lost in the crowd either.

The quality of the academic programs are fantastic. Music, art, sports, and other extracurricular activities are readily available to all students. Parents at this school are very involved in their childs schooling and supportive to their learning needs.

I have 4 children in the Franklin Schools and I agree with the last name issue. It does not matter how much money you have, it matters if you are at least a 2nd generation Franklinite. I like the school for the most part due to the fact that they still say the pledge and pray before lunch in the Elementary. I am very pleased with their choice for the new superintendent. The place needs to remember why there are schools, and it is not a place for them to act like big shots in such a small area where what they think is nothing to the rest of the world. That is what I keep reminding my children.

Like most small towns everywhere, there are a certain few whose children receive preferential treatment due to longevity in the community or status within the community. Franklin is no different in that respect. There is also an entrenched teaching/administration that works on tenure and 'towing the company line' as opposed to talent and innovation. As a rural school district that coops with other school districts for special education services, the quality and availability for such services is lacking on many levels. All in all, Franklin looks inward and not outward to the world around.

I am a retired school teacher who loves teaching and subbing, but I will never sub again at Franklin High School. All the classes we're large, and somewhat loud and unruly. Especially her 5th period class. There was 32 students in the period, they we're awful. The previous review may be true, but FHS needs to hire more staff and sort out class sizes.

Franklin High School has an extremely high percentage of graduates move on to higher education. In regards to the 'last name' remarks made by a previous critic, simply not true. I imagine it doesn't matter where or what they do, they always are being treated unfairly.

This is your typical public high school, last names and money are everything. If you were born, rasied, and graduated from FHS, your students have it made in the shade. Another negative about FHS is that it is becoming quite a diverse school. In order for Franklin to keep growing like it is they need to look past last names and concentrate on educating they're students.

I've gone to FHS now for 5 years, and would say that it has promoted better teaching skills and techniques by making it fun to learn. Overall I would say that FHS is a great school.
