Franco American School Reviews

Worth Every Penny!

By a Parent on

We're a middle class family that works hard for what we have.  Still, we've never considered for even a second sending our kids to a less expensive school.  The education that they receive at Franco American is the best around.  They play sports competitively against other schools in the area, they take piano lessons after school, and, most importantly, they are challenged academically.  Beyond that, they are very considerate and polite (We receive lots of compliments when we're out with our kids).  Other schools might be a bit less expensive, but I doubt those schoos offer the same education as FAS.

Great Community

Franco is more than a is a community of learners. Students learn and grow together. The school holds many family events and teaches the students the importance of helping those in need. A great school to check out!

I love this school! The curriculum is challenging and students are expected to work hard but they also have fun. This school offers year-round child care as well, which is a huge plus. The teachers and administration are wonderful. I can't say enough about how great this school is!

Wonderful School that Offers all of the Basics and Many Extras!

By , a Teacher on

Franco American School provides a very strong education on the Massachusetts Common Core subjects. However, it provides so much more. Its friendly, family-centered atmosphere teaches values and Christian morals and ideals. Music and athletic offerings abound. This is a wonderful school!

Outstanding Education with Lots of Extras!

By , a Teacher on

Franco American School is a unique school, because it provides a thorough education in not only the core subjects, but also in the arts. Various types of music instrumental lessons are available. An up-and-coming local artist teaches the art classes. There are also dance lessons, karate classes, and various sports from which to choose! Our children also learn about respect, values, and citizenship. Not only do we have all that is necessary for a well-rounded education, but parents tell us that, after completing their years at our school, their children are well prepared for High School. Franco American School is your best choice!

Great School

Franco American is a wonderful school.  The teachers are very dedicated to challenging their students, but they are also kind and caring.  If you are looking for a community that works together to benefit all of the students, you should check out FAS!

I enjoy everything that this school has to offer. It is a gorgeous building with a lot of history. It is clean and classrooms are bright and cheery. Many extracurricular activities, enriching field trips, and school events. Kids love it here-such a nice place to educate your child.

One of the best schools in the area

By , a Parent on

My children have been attending Franco American School since Pre K and kindergarten in 2009. Academically and socially they have flourished and excelled.  The school offers a very challenging curriculum in all core subject areas while encouraging the arts through music, art, gym, computers and library time. The faculty and staff are caring and helpful.  My kids feel safe and and comfortable here and enjoy going to school. It was one of the best decisions we as parents made for children and I would highly recommend this school to anyone. There are also after school music lessons in piano and violin and a great before and after school care program.

Great Blend of Traditional and Progressive Education in Historic Setting

By , a Parent on

I love, love, love this school!  The devoted staff, the challenging curriculum, the wonderful enrichment programs, the art and music offerings, the small class sizes, the yummy lunches (That's lunches served right out of an actual kitchen, where they are made by a real cook), the beautiful and historic building and grounds...I can't say enough about this school.  My kids are so happy here.  They participate in every program they can - bowling, piano, cross country, Tae Kwon Do, choir, track and field, etc.  They are challenged academically, but they aren't overwhelmed.  The curriculum offers creative opportunities in art and music, so my kids are really engaged.  This school is a great blend of traditional and progressive education.  

Probably the worst so far

By a Parent on

I do not like this school at all. I just moved from Ohio and I enrolled my daughter in 6th grade. The first day of school I thought it was all going well, but turns out I was wrong. The staff is my biggest complaint. They are not very focused and aren't very enthusiastic about their job. My daughter told me that at lunch they have "chew time," which doesn't let them talk at lunch. It's an everyday thing. The staff doesn't let the students go out to recess until everyone is done their lunch. And when everybody is done with their lunch, the boys get to go out to recess first. Then 10 minutes after the boys go out, the girls get to go out. It just doesn't seem fair. I had to enroll my daughter in another school a month into the school year, which is a disappointment, but I really don't think she's going to learn anything if she's unhappy.

I have been sending my children to this school for 9 years. I send them to this school over all others because of the extremely loving and supportive atmosphere the school encourages and was built on. Being a former orphanage, this schools roots are to provide a safe, supportive environment for any child in it s care, regardless of race or economic status. This has proven to produce exceptional results from test scores but more importantly the qualities that make good citizens and neighbors of the future.

My daughter has been so happy at the Franco.  The small classes allow her to get more help from the teacher.

My daughters attend Franco American School.  They are in kindergarten and third grade.  I could not be more pleased with the school.  They are getting an excellent education, and the teachers are all very caring and hare working.  The school is extremely well-run by a very committed and involved principle.  There is a real sense of community, with family events pretty much every month during the school year.  There is also a particular emphasis on respecting one another and personal responsibility that you just won't find in any public school.  Children really flourish in this environment.
