    The WORST. As said in other reviews this school favors the students who have parents on the school board or who have parents that are teaching. The ex-superintendent got a teaching job for his daughter and she got a teaching job for her son. The students do not learn what is needed to further their lives in a career.

    This used to be such a great school. However many of the teachers that made it such a good school have retired. They're bringing new teachers right out of college and many of them seem to have no idea what they're doing. Your child's grades might seem great but in reality they're learning nothing. This school is no longer an excellent school. When my daughter was going into elementary we decided to open enroll her. I don't believe it is worth it. And they're making major budget cuts and are cutting the elementary gifted program altogether. If you are considering sending your child here for high school or junior high I would definitely consider another school. Also many of the teachers are former graduates of Franklin Monroe or have family that goes to Franklin Monroe. So there is a lot of favoritism especially in the high school. Most of my daughters friends' parents work at the school or are related to the superintendent or principal. It's ridiculous. The sports are also going downhill. Most of the starters only play because they have a "name." Definitely not a good school to consider sending your children to.

    Franklin Monroe has excellent faculty and staff. They are very caring compassionate and willing to help make your child's school experience a positive one. We are very pleased to have had our daughters graduate from Franklin Monroe and be ready to continue their education and go into the workforce. We look forward to seeing our son graduate in four years and continue his learning experience after high school. Thank you for all that you do. Greg & Patty Spencer
