27 Parent Reviews for Franklin Elementary Fine Arts Center

We are relatively new to Franklin and my child absolutely LOVES everything about it (after transferring in from another magnet school with a long waiting list). The references to the "high percentage of special education students" carries an air of aristocracy that is a little disturbing (... and no, ...  Read more

This school is undergoing major transition. There are some long term teachers, but the others are lower quality and it's a revolving door in term of who will be teaching which grade from year to year. Many student discipline problems and and misbehavior go unaddressed. The school culture is not the ...  Read more

Great School! One of the Best CPS Magnets. Kids are doing great on academics and they are very happy. That's what I care about.

My kids are challenged and also have a chance to shine because there is ...  Read more

I respect everyone's opinion about this school. Everyone deserves the right to say what they want. However, if some parent intend to slander FFAC on the internet because the school didn't do what they want, that is wrong. Perhaps this parent can express his or her feeling about the school at the LSC ...  Read more

Just to add on to an earlier review, there is also a large popuplation of Special Education students at this school. I'm not implying that there is something wrong with these students; but,it's something I would have liked to know when weighing school options. If your family follows a healthy diet ...  Read more
