About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Franklin Academy Reviews
We love Franklin Academy! The teachers are amazing, the kids are all excited about learning and every class is far beyond the typical grade level. The teaching methods seem to scare a lot of parents off, but it's actually very different than those people think. If you didn't know it was a DI school and went to watch a class, you'd just see a normal teacher with lots of interested kids. I absolutely recommend applying.
Absolutely top notch!
