It's a relatively decent school with great people and good teachers. The school's mostly divided between the kids in advanced classes and kids in normal classes, which means the two groups don't really mix all that much. Since I was in the advanced classes, I can say from my experience that the AP and honors classes were more than up to par compared to other local school and some of our AP classes produce AP scores much higher than the national average.

I think the student population is relatively diverse, with our fair share of African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, etc. They don't exclusively stick together here, they mix with other people too, unlike at places like Gateway.

However, the lunch food could be better and if you don't have a friend group to hang out with, you're going to be alone :P

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.

I have attended Franklin Regional High School for my whole high school career. I have learned a lot of different things throughout my time attending Franklin. Out of all of the schools around my area I believe Franklin Regional is the best at preparing their students for the future. From counselors to teachers and even school administrators, I have never had a time where I have felt unable to preform at my best thanks to the people that make my school function.
