    My child has attended Franklin Square Elementary/Middle since Pre-K and I have always loved the teachers staff and principals. My child is now in the 7th grade and I am still impressed with the quality of education he is receiving.

    The time I've been at this school the staff is all about the students and their success in learning and most of all RESPECT for others and themselves Respect for Learning Respect for the environment. I've learned that once a parent drops their child off at the school their responsibility ends.
