He said, "A year from now, only two of you will still be in the business. Two years from now, only one will be left." I knew right then, I would be that person. I remember meeting with ...

What is the Best Franklin Elementary School - I get this question a lot, and if you base the answer on test scores, it's a fairly easy answer. If you start to include opinions of parents and students, it becomes more subjective. I also think that comparing a magnet school to a typical public school is not a fair comparison. Magnet schools in general only allow the best students, giving them an unfair advantage. All of the Franklin elementary schools are ranked in the top 20% in the state with most in the top 10%. With all of that explanation behind me, I'll go ahead and give you the rankings based on TCAP scores. Clovercroft is the top Franklin elementary school an the top traditional public school in the state. By the way, if you click on the school name, it will give you a list of all...
