Thurman Francis Elementary School Reviews
Overall Thurman Francis is a nice school. The lower grades have a lot of fun with different projects. The teachers have an excitement for learning that they share with the children. I personally haven't enjoyed the time we've spent in the middle school. The teachers seem to be under so much pressure to excel that they push the children to the point of burn out. Four to six hours of homework every night. It doesn't leave time for anything else. It takes the joy out of learning. The advantage of sending your preteen to Thurman Francis is that they don't have time to get involved in drugs, etc. It's a safer environment than typical middle schools.
