    I am giving Franklin Middle School 5 stars because of the very high academic standards and expectations of the Principal the teachers and mostly the students. My child is currently attending and her classes are challenging. The teachers keep the children interested and motivated. The student population for the 2013 8th grade class is EXTREMELY COMPETITIVE. Many of those students took the entrance exam for Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. Not all kids can keep up with the course load expectations but that is the child's responsibility. Middle school is tough for students because many are still going through the growing years and trying to find their identity. There are many involved parents who volunteer for various activities...never a shortage of chaperones or teacher helpers. I highly recommend Franklin Middle School.

    I would give Franklin 4 stars except for the math teachers. The ones we have dealt with are very rigid and don't adjust for children with different learning styles.

    I attend franklin and the teachers are just wonderful. But the kids very disrespectful because one time they would not open the door for me and walked away looking at me and laughing. One of the things that concerns me is the language used constantly at the school. I come home tired of hearing cuss words all day and crude language. I will reccomend this school but its not the best.

    Franklin Middle is a wonderful school. My son has attended a different school from 6-8 grade. He has never been happier. The school is competive and the students are high achievers. The activities are fun and educational. Great School.
