Franklin High School Reviews
In regards to the former TLC student's review, just read their comment, look at their grammar and you'll know that TLC is nowhere close to being as good academically as IB. The reason so many IB students attempt to get into TLC is because IB is such a rigorous course and they want the easy road through high school.
Franklin is an improving high school, with a strict but fair principal who is leading the light towards making this school the best in the district.
Franklin high is an awesome program called TLC.. In the program, the teachers prepare their students for college...I believe TLC is better than IB because my four years of being in the TLC program; i have seen plenty of IB students tried to get into TLC but they can't due to the waiting list. This shows that TLC is better...
Definately not the best school you could you send your child to.
I think Franklin High has a "great" IB program and look forward to when my nephew can attend and participate in this program. My family is very dedicated in his well being and especially his education! I hear alot of good opinions from other parents and friends, so I think more students should get involved in this program to help with their education & college career! Go Class of 2014!
