    Overall Experience: I really enjoy going to Franklin Regional. There are so many great ways to get involved with whatever you like to do. I love how the academics are challenging too so you know you are getting a quality education. There are things I would change, like the popular, judgmental group of people, but every school has them. My favorite experiences would have to be being a part of the middle school and high school musicals with my friends! It's so much fun staying after school to sing and dance with others who enjoy it and are talented.

    Teachers: There has not been one teacher whom I disliked. The teachers truly engage the students into learning. They don't tell us the answer. They ask us questions to get us to think. This is the best way to learn. The AP teachers are also incredibly devoted to their subject area. They help students when they need it, and with our QRT (Quality Resource Time) program at the school, it is easy for students to get extra help from a teacher whenever they need it.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurriculars are fantastic. There is a club for everyone of all abilities. For example, there is a Mentor Team for people who like to help others and defend against bullies. There is a Cooking club for students who like to cook. The possibilities are endless. There are plenty of sports too, even including the not so common ones, such as Ultimate Frisbee.
