The staff is very degrading to the students. It is an awful school. They do not know how to keep the high students high. They cater to the low students. The high students get thrown on computer because they don't know how to do anything with them. They are a technology emersion school which is supposed to help. But the programs are not in place. Your child's education will suffer if your child goes here. Going from great school to this one was a huge disappointment. Some teachers are good but getting that few teachers is not easy. There is a lot of people who take there kids out of this school. Thank goodness I did! My kids did not benefit at all for the few months they were there. If your kids are high you will have to supplement at home because they don't get the education they need

Tons of technology in the school, great teachers and staff, great at getting the child who is struggling up to grade level, starting in 3rd grade there is an accelerated program for above average students. Don't listen to the gossip or negative comments going around they are completely untrue, take the time to give Franklin a chance and you will love it.

This school has a very challenging at-risk population; however, the principal and the experienced faculty make this school work for my family. My two children have had excellent teachers who have worked hard to meet their unique needs.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Utah used the Utah Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 2 through 11 in Language Arts, in grades 2 through 8 in Math, in grades 4 through 8 in Science and upon completion of certain courses in grades 8 through 11. The CRT is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Utah. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
