Posted November 7, 2006

The quality of academic programs at Franklin Middle School are some what good. The availability in music, art, and sports are the same as other schools in the Yakima county. But the extracurricular activities are superb. I went to Franklin myself and I loved it. I made good friends, I absolutely loved the teachers, particularly Mr. Nelson the science teacher, and Ms. Pitt-Kimble was a wonderful teacher. I did not however like how the admissive office and the secretaries went about there job. There's absolutely no organization in there system it seems.

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.
