There is no sup or mgmt of teachers taking place, they are more worried about being friends with the teachers. There have been teachers with inappropriate language and actions in classrooms, physical contact, teacher student relations, with at least one teacher arrested for sexual relations with a student. Most accusations are swept under the rug so administrators don't come under fire for them. Parent concerns are heard but not recognized, because they just really don't care, unless it is one of the teachers kids. Unless your family has been in Frankston for generations then your kids will not fit in. Most of the staff is related to each other and like to spend their time gossiping instead of teaching. As far as sports are concerned, your kid won't play unless you are a lifelong resident of Frankston or you are lifelong buddies of the coach. They pick and chose what rules they want to follow for which kids. This is not limited to just sports. Find another school district, this one is worthless unless new supervision gets rid of at least 90% of the staff. Frankston is the lowest paying school district in Texas, so I guess you get the bottom of the barrel.

As a former student of Frankston High School I feel like the education I received there prepared me to attend a university. The quality of the teachers, curriculum, technology and extra curricular activities exceed expectations for a small school. I'm proud to be a graduate of Frankston High School!

I have three children currently attending FISD. I do agree that you have to be in the in crowd to be recognized and usually contist of teachers and faculty children. On the other hand my middle child who is in 7th grade has struggle in school until we moved to Frankston. Her teachers and Counslor have worked alot with her and she now makes As and Bs . Overall I think Frankston is a good school.

My child graduated a few years ago from FHS and I have one left in this school. My older has gone on to college and it has been very difficult, because they are not prepared for college life. The only teachers that truly prepare them are two high school english teacher and one of the teachers is fairly new. The lack of discipline is a huge problem. You have to be in the IN crowd to get noticed by the office administration. Their are not enough extracurricular activities and electives. If you are not an athlete or Ag student there is no where for you too fit in. I think there are a lot of terrific teachers in the school, but they need strong administration.

My daughter was accepted into Texas A & M University in College Station when she graduated and when she got there she was so overwhelmed by what she thought she knew but didn't. She gave credit to only one teacher at the high school that did anything to help prepare her for college and that is after she had been enrolled in all AP classes and graduated in the top 8 in her class. The principal at the high school tries to be more of a friend than an authority figure and discipline at the high school has gone right out the window. The middle school principal does nothing for the parents at that school. If you have a problem with a teacher, you can guarantee that he will always side with the teacher or coach and the experiences I have had with him, problems are not solved.

The parent involvement is probably better than at larger schools. This is a small school with small school politics. But overall I would send my child again to this school.

My children have gone here all their life. They do not offer alot of extracurricular activities, except if you are an athlete. It is a safe and small environment.

This school is not that great.I went there in the 2004-2005 year and did not enjoy it.The teachers there do not connect with their students like they should and they show a lot of favoritism towards the students that have been there longer. I would not recommend sending your child to this school.I was a new student in that year and the teachers did not welcome me as they should have.

This school is generally a low performance school with much emphasis on sports and extracurricular activities. Academically there are few options available outside the state required curriculum. Generally speaking, there is a great deal of nepotism apparent among staff. I would avoid this school if possible.
