    This is a great school. I feel so lucky to have my daughter attending. It is academic socially focused health aware and a small community. What an amazing opportunity.

    NFS is a gem. George Shea has created a collaborative environment where teachers parents and administrators communicate well and put the needs of the kids first. The teachers go above and beyond -- my son's second grade teacher last year was a frequent face in the crowd at her students' soccer games plays and other extracurricular activities. A stronger parent community would make this a five-star school across the board.

    I have two children in New Franklin and what a great community New Franklin is. My children are not only learning but they are building lasting relationships. The teachers are fabulous caring giving and are always there for the children.
