Great school. Staff is wonderful and friendly. It's a smaller school so we became familiar with other Franklin families fairly quick. If your child is starting out with preschool background they should do well here. However, I have also seen students with no previous preschool background excell because of the support from teachers and their families.So far I've had one incident where another student started trouble with my Kindergarten child, we notified the principle and the situation was handled professionally and quickly. I gave a four star rating because 1) I wish there were more extracurricular activities available 2) I wish that the class work would challenge students who do above grade average work. But overall, the experience has been a pleasant one.~A Franklin parent.

I attended this school when I was younger, so I knew my children would go there as well. My oldest just started Kindergarten this year and I am beyond impressed with the teachers and the rest of the staff. My daughter loves it here and even tries to stay home when she's sick! They are a back to basics school and the children generally learn a grade above where they are (in Kinder they learn 1st grade material for example) It is wonderful and it keeps my daughter challenged. Not to the point of frustration, but so she doesn't become disinterested or bored. I have noticed that the teachers are wonderful about taking extra time with students that may be struggling and they are always happy to answer any questions or concerns I may have.

Franklin West Elementary uses an excellent Spalding reading system; however, after 4 years I have removed my student due to the intolerable campus environment which is EXCLUSIVE, HOSTILE, PUNITIVE and ABUSIVE.

My son has been attending FW for 2 years now. I was a little concerned with the Spalding method of learning to read at first, but still chose this school because they still have the option of half-a-day kinder, which I wanted. He is excelling in all areas. No matter where in Mesa we end up, my kids will be attending this school.
