Elementary school is fine, but the junior high school needs improvement. The facilities are below average. Several local schools refuse to play basketball here because the gymnasium is still a multi-purpose room with a cracked tile floor. Mostly, I''m disappointed by the academics at the junior high school level. Requests for study guides are ignored, no notices are sent to remind parents when mid-term progress reports have been posted to the Parent Portal - but we get 2 emails each day telling us that there's a PTA bake sale going on coming up or that the 7th grade jewelry sale deadline is this Friday. Additionally, the lack of communication is so bad that many parents have been shocked by poor report cards. What does it take to send an email? In my opinion, the biggest problem at Frankford is that the school has a small town mentality. Many of the teachers and staff members have grown up here and/or live in town. For parents who work outside of the school system or have grown up in other towns, Frankford appears to be a very chummy work environment where poor teachers are protected and good teachers just kind of stay quiet and mind their own business. You would think that for a school district that has no gangs, where 1/3 of the parents have college degrees and the average income is above median that the school should be much, much better.
