On Health & Safety: The nurses office have a great amount of support for people who are sexually active, people who are sick, and people who have health problems. The amount of nurses and doctors in the office is incredible, although the nurse office do get bust at times there is appointments you can set up with a nurse or doctor.

On Academics: Being a student with a lot of extra curricular activities, taking college ready classes and working I often find myself having a hard time balancing my time. With the amazing staff that is available to Franklin students during school hours and non school hours the Franklin community feels like a family. Each and everyone of the staff provides educational help when needed. Teachers are willing to stay after school hours to help students who need the extra help and the support from the counselors are unbelievable! The staff at Franklin high school are very accepting to everyone and they do not discriminate.

On Resources & Facilities: Hard to describe this. There are resources and facilities available, but I think the issue with it is more on the students' ends because if you ask them about tutoring, they most likely won't want to attend, even if it's available. The quality of the school buildings are average on the outside, but on the inside, they're at least decent--perhaps above average. The bathrooms have gotten better--hey, they have at least a mirror now--but they're still in somewhat poor condition. I've seen better bathrooms, but I'm not gonna complain much about it. Technology is available, of course. I can't say much about counselors because it differs with each counselor. I don't know much about college prep resources or parent involvement, but busing can be pretty dangerous. The neighborhood around FHS is pretty...shady at times. Maybe dangerous. I've seen FHS smoking, and the adults near FHS would just simply give FHS students a cigarette and light it for them. I can't say much about them, but waiting around for the eight bus is dangerous unless you're with a group of friends. If you're by yourself, you might get scared. I waited by myself for a couple of times, and I will admit that I've gotten scared. I'm still scarred from the incident when I got my iPod Touch robbed from me in the area near the shady side of New Holly (i.e., it's near the 36 bus stops, basically). So, yeah. I can't give a rating, but...I hope my review at least helps.
