On Teachers: students thought that teachers were just doing their job, but it was much more than that. Most teachers were proud of what they were offering and love teaching. I grew to love many teachers and taught me very well. They cared to teach students what they know and made sure that their teaching styles fit every student out there.

On Academics: At Franklin, they gave you four different academics where you as an individual get the responsibility to choose which academy you wanted to be included in. I was in the humanities, where i got the chance to learn so much more than it was offered. I was very grateful, I was not a very studious person, but the classes pushes me to do more work and I learned more than I knew that is out there. The work load were all doable if a student was willing and happy to be responsible.

On Administration & Policies: The school shows that learning is a great part of why a person attends school. Many students do not care for the education because they are not aware of why it is needed. They act up and be late to school because they do not care for what is offered. The school gave out lunch detention or after school detention for being late to class. Also, I'm not quite aware of how suspensions are handled at the school, but I know there is a room for it where everything is handled.

On Sports & Fitness: The Franklin Teams work very well together, and are very courageous. They are all proud of their school and do as much as they can to be the best. They are the leaders of the school spirit and also the ASB. The athletic team are all kind and nice showing great showmanship. Whether win or lose, Franklin is happy to be who it is.

On Extracurriculars: Many students at Franklin are involved in clubs and after school organizations and school activities. It is shown how proud Franklin is because of all of the involvement of students in clubs and activities. I was included myself in about 4 or 5 clubs and activities. I was very proud of them and happy to be in them. I highly recommend in joining clubs and taking a chance to explore high school while it still last.
