Benjamin Franklin Middle School Ratings & Reviews

December 14, 2014 Submitted by a parent
I have to say this has been a great school for my daughter. My daughter struggled thru elementary. When we got to franklin school it was a total change for the better and the teachers have really helped my daughter succeed. The teachers have always been easy to contact. Great school compared to other middle schools in the area.

Our son attended the "gifted" program at Franklin and we found the school to be completely unsatisfactory. Parental volunteerism was discouraged. The principal yelled at the students as her way to communicate with them, either good or bad (mostly bad). She had a very militant style. The students were expected to learn by rote, which is not a good learning tool for anyone, especially students who engage at a higher learning level. Our son was having trouble in math, and we asked him if he asked the teacher to explain it to him. He said she wouldn't answer his questions. The teacher confirmed it stating she didn't have time to answer questions during class time. The Johns Hopkins Math Program in 8th grade was taught by a student teacher who didn't understand the curriculum herself. Franklin Middle School was a complete waste of time.

The school is very disiplined, and students are tought right from wrong. I am a student going there and the school pushes all students to do the best they can.. Its all about choices.

This is not a good school. Choose a private or a charter school. The administration are rude and just want to ruin students career by giving out way to many detention.

Wow - I've had two children go through school at FMS and found the school, staff, and faculty to be absolutely wonderful. One of my children has 3 developmental disabilities, and the other was in regular track classes. In both cases we found the teachers to be very interested in our children and their well-being and educational progress. The child with developmental disabilities is now graduating from high school and started out freshman year in the high track classes. He is planning on going to college in Chemical Engineering. Our other child will be a freshman in high school next year and is sad to leave FMS. If your experience at FMS was poor, I suggest you look at your own attitude as to the reason. School is what the student and the parents make of it, and very seldom is the administration as poor as what people say.
