Anyone who said the teachers are uneducated, are not really looking at what the teachers are teaching, and more their kid complaining about school. The conformity which is slight comes from the differences between the A.P.P.L.E program and the regular program. As the APPLEs try to be all the same, uptight, popular, and snobby. The regular program has almost no conformity what so ever. The test score are a little low because teachers don't teach to the test, not like other schools. Lots of parent evolvement. At least you Kid won't be staring in to one of those tablet screens, all day. This school would be perfect, if it had enough money to continue, its afterschool athletic program they had in the 1990s.

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 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.
