The community school offers a unique educational setting that provides instruction through a student-centered approach, empowering students to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. The school offers APEX credit recovery, project-based learning and access to technology for all students, small classes in traditional classrooms, and opportunities to participate in part-time work in the community while earning credit. Our goal is to provide creative, relevant, and real-world instruction to enable our students to achieve academic success, build toward a successful future, and become productive members of their community.
The Franklin Local Community School is happy to offer a credit flexibility program to its students. This educational option allows students to take charge of their learning. Some students see more value in school when they can connect learning with real-world situations and potential jobs. The key to this option is that the student drives the request to learn differently as well as the plan to earn the credit. A student’s personal interest serves as the basis for the request.
The teacher assigned with the credit flexibility plan ensures the student is doing the work, reaching goals, and making progress in learning. It is the student’s responsibility to do the work to find success. The teacher guides the student by providing feedback.
