This is the worst school I have ever dealt with. Teachers were uneducated, staff lacked simple knowledge on how to enrich children's minds. Conformity is the standard and not individualism. I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone.

I have two children at this school and another one on the way. The teachers are so professional. Their knowledge of the age appropriate curriculum is unparalleled. It is a small school that draws students from around the city do to the A.P.P.L.E. program. The diversity of student population is unlike any other school in the district. Furthermore, the parent participation rate is also high due to the A.P.P.L.E program making this 100 year old school a great learning community. Finally, the character of the old building also makes this a great place for primary grade students to learn about the world.

Franklin has exceeded all of my expectations as a school. Both my boys (one 3rd grader and a 6th grader) have benefited by leaps and bounds from this fabulous school. Thank you, Franklin.

My daughter is just completing her 7th year at Franklin. She has been there K-6th. This is a fabulous school with a dynamic program A.P.P.L.E. The educational and other fundamentals have been nothing but OUTSTANDING! I am so happy that she was able to attend here elementary years and kudos to all the Franklin staff!

My son has just completed four years at Franklin School and we have been pleased with our experience of the school. It is a small, nurturing, environment where students are known by staff and well-cared for. The quality of the instruction is very, very good emphasizing strong literacy skills and problem solving skills. My son also enjoyed music intruction, art, and theatre at Franklin. This is a school that parents can trust for the social and intellectual development of their children.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
