The school is small, but provides great traditional education. During the public schools are into "common core" and independent private schools are switching to I-pad education, this school focuses on building children's foundation. Children are learning math facts, writing, reading, making notes from text books and how to be kids without caring I-phones at the school. With not too many resources, school implemented "Junior Achievement" program in their middle school, which provides kids with the basic economics. Great program.
Our family moved to Franklin from California a year ago. After visiting several schools in the community, we selected St. Martin's, and we're glad we did. Our boys were warmly welcomed. Their teachers worked with them individually to make sure they were academically aligned with their classmates. The staff and families really make this school special.
St Martin of Tours is a wonderful school and environment for our children. They have small class sizes coupled with a values based education. The athletic program is top notch! Not only do our children enjoy the school but we as parents enjoy the overall community. Our children are not only excelling as students but as people.
St. Martin of Tours School is a great school because the students there not only get an above average academic and spiritual education, but also because it has a very active and involved school community made up of the students, teachers, and parents. My sons have been enrolled in the school since k-4 (They are currently in the 5th & 8th grades). They truly like their school because they are encouraged to play an active role in making the school environment what it is. In addition to their involvement as students, they have been involved in the sports (soccer & basketball) and scouting programs offered through the school. St. Martin of Tours School is a wonderful place for children and their parents to learn, grow, and make life-long friends.
