Sending my first child to school for her first year of kinder was a little worriesome. We feel, though, that our prayers were answered. We got the lead teacher, Mrs. Rankin, as a teacher. She is wonderful! The princpal seems to have a big heart and to know what is going on in her school. I LOVE the way the teachers in the district are all on the same page, too. I can tell they work together well. (I used to be a teacher, so I can see the difference from the other schools I taught at!)

Franz is a unique school. The climate of the school when you walk in and see the kids interacting with their teacher, the staff interacting with each other is a happy one. It just feels that way! The building is fairly new and well equipped and VERY CLEAN! The children look happy and receive and excellent education from a very caring and dedicated staff.
