Franklin Military Academy Reviews
Franklin Military Academy is a school that PARENTS send their children to and THINK that the teachers are responsible for not only educating them, but for parenting them as well. Most of the parents who send their children there do so because of the behavior problems they have put up with over many of the past years the students have been in school. Then, when students misbehave at Franklin, the parents response is, "well YOU should be handling that . . . that's why I sent them there." If, as an ADULT, you truly believe students who get put out of a school did NOTHING, you need to reevaluate your position. NO child gets put out of any school without the proper paperwork and procedure. Parents should spend more time assessing what they can do to HELP a school with THEIR problem child . . . believe me, that same child that was a problem there, will have a problem EVERYWHERE if YOU as a parent don't get involved and keep believe everything he/she says.
My child has attend there for 2 years in middle school and those teachers, where did they find them ? Also they need to dress promptly ( maybe professional would help) The Students has on uniform they should atlease where an blazer too. NOT JEANS>
This is one of the worst places to send your child for an education. I sent my daughter there for her 9th grade year 2010 - 2011 they have the worst education system that I have seen by far. Most of the teachers have favorites and will not give any student extra help. In my child's class this past year i was told only 5 people passed the geometry sol. There was a brutal fight that wasn't broken up by any type of staff members and during that rat harassment day my daughter was sent to the hospital for having a severe asthma attack. I don't reccomend this school for any child. Most of the children get put out after there first year for reasons such as academics, attendance, and behavior. I met most of these children and they did no such thing please think twice before allowing your child to go to this school.
Looking forward to the mall class size. My daughter will be in the 9th grade.
