We chose to send our children to Franklin Monroe because our family has attended the district for generations. For years, Franklin Monroe was one of the top districts in the county for academics. Strong academic achievement and small classes were extremely attractive to us when making our decision to enroll our children in Franklin Monroe Elementary. We like the small class sizes because it offers a more individualized approach to learning and allows students to succeed.  - Parent of an open enrolled 1st Grader
