    I'm a 6th grade student at French and it's an awesome place to go to school.It has great teachers great atmosphere and great principals.No one that trys out for sports ever gets cut and alot of students like to do extracurricular stuff.

    I have twins that attent this school. I'm not impressed by some of the teachers lack of motivation. Also I am not impressed that on a scale from 1-10...Frech rates a two on test scores. There is something wrong. We are relocating to an area where test scores are 8-9. I'm very uneasy about Topeka's schooling.

    I love this school their strictness on how the students are to be on time to their classes the parent involvement the appreciation of their students how many students go out for sports (by the way no one ever gets cut off the team when trying out) and most if all the staff and students there!-Dawn k. Topeka ks.

    I go to French and I love it. I like most of the teachers and i like our principals. Also since ou new bully system Waging Peace got started i think bullying has gone down some. We also have the most people go out for sports. To sum it up French is a great school

    French Middle School can be fun. It's definately safe and gives you many choices in extra activities. They encourage sports and gives you a choice of orchestra band and choir.

    I think French Midde School is a great school for all children. I go there and I love it. The only thing I would change is the princpals. To me the school needs is old princpals back but hey thats me. I love it and I'm going to enjoy my eighth grade year! Go Falcons!
