Franklin MA Schools


Kathy did a good job of describing the Franklin schools, their arrangement and some rankings.

Via Kathy Stankard (RE/MAX Executive Realty):

The town of Franklin, MA schools are arranged by districts based on where you live within the town–there is essentially no difference which school your child attends since the state of Massachusetts follows some of the most strict curriculum guidelines in the country.

The Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) is the guide by which curricula are created within the state.  Their website indicates Massachusetts schools must:

  • test all public school students in Massachusetts, including students with disabilities and limited English proficient students;
  • measure performance based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework learning standards;
  • report on the performance of individual students, schools, and districts.

As required by the Education Reform Law, students must pass the grade 10 tests in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics as one condition of eligibility for a high school diploma (in addition to fulfilling local requirements).

In addition, the MCAS program is used to hold schools and districts accountable, on a yearly basis, for the progress they have made toward the objective of the No Child Left Behind Law that all students be proficient in Reading and Mathematics by 2014.

Franklin is comprised of five elementary schools for grades K-5; three middle schools for grades 6-8; and one high school for grades 9-12.  Comprehensive information can be found on the superintendent’s webpage.

Franklin, Massachusetts schools, in general, are ranked quite highly in a number of areas.  The music, sports, arts and theater programs at the high school are outstanding and have received many awards over the years.  Several websites rank the academic programs very favorably as well.

If you have specific questions about your child’s needs, please give me a call or email and I will get you the answers or put you in touch with the correct resource.

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
