So far, it has been okay and average. The freshmen academy and the counselors are pretty decent but the main building could be a little bit better.

BEWARE they push the AP curriculum down the kids throats. And when they actually sign up for the AP classes there is no guidance. Hope you are pro-active and ask allot of questions. Way Way overcrowded. My daughter goes to library for lunch and waits to eat till she gets home due to the lack of seating and the Cafeteria is DISGUSTING. The front office personnel are some of the rudest people i have ever met. Think the MVA employees (For speed) and Correction officers(For attitude) combined. WIsh we had never moved to this district.

Most of my life I have spent my school years in the west. I had moved from WA. State after my sophomore year. If you are a parent or student who have just moved from the west to here it's very different. The teachers are amazing, they really know how to help you understand the criteria and help you get through class. The AP classes are wonderful too and really do invite a challenge. This school has the best teachers I've ever met. However on the social aspect it's very difficult. I'm a pretty outgoing person but they way people in the Midwest interact is completely different from the west. I had a hard time adjusting to the people and making friends. This school is also very competitive and you have to be really good at something to get into sports or theater. It's a huge school as well, all my life I've been to smaller schools so it is a big adjustment and it gets scary at times. If anyone is wondering they have a closed campus so you cannot ever leave school unless you are excused and are forced to eat in the cafeteria. Something I didn't like. If you're a person from the west who is used to more open minded, smaller, uncompetitive schools, this is going to be hard. I was here for a semester of my junior year then dropped out for online due to the many changes that caused depression. However if you can adapt easily and enjoy competitive big schools it is really nice and I can assure you the teachers are wonderful. Not everyone is perfect but most of them are amazing.

My son is in his first year at Franklin Central; it is simply a fantastic school. I cannot say enough good things about Franklin Township as a whole. My son isn't an athletic type but the school has a great choir and arts program for kids more inclined to like music, arts, band and theater. He also thrives academically and I've never had a problem with any of his teachers. In fact, his gym teacher took the time to call me just to say he had improved a lot since the first of the year. How many teachers bother to call to say something positive? I was recently offered a job out of state but had to decline because I can't be sure we could find a school we like as much in Nashville, TN. I'm here until he's off to college!

All 3 of my children have attended Franklin Central Schools. All 3 of them have done well academically. My youngest child has been in the top 10 since first attending the high school. The AP classes have completely prepared her for college, SAT and ACT testing. They keep the parents and students well informed. FC does have challenges just like every school in America created by mixed cultures and negative influences in today's society. I think FC has done an excellent job handling all different types of situations to the best of their abilities. Keep up the great work, parents and students love you.
