925. The Franklin Academy

The Franklin Academy is the latest facility on the campus which house it. Before the campus housed Haddam Hills Academy. Other schools who used to be located at the campus was Becket Academy and the Founders School.

Testimonies speak of employees which could use training to deal with the issues the children arrive with. Training they clearly never got before they started working.

I was in a difficult position in high school. I didnt have any understanding of any difficulties and how to manage such difficulties. Looking back at Franklin academy I recognize my own short comings in me putting forth a full effort in my time there but also in retrospect I did not receive any meaningful help into understanding myself and recognizing any of my core strengths and how to cope with my struggles with my own mental health. I understand that for some it does work but I find that was mostly due to the kids and social environment they were in rather than the support or education received at Franklin. Most of the staff seemed overwhelmed when kids had meltdowns and couldn’t spare the attention to manage such situations appropriately. I hope one day this institution finds away to help kids more than it does just take in money

School prohibits all activities that are enjoyable during non class hours, This School is run by the least empathetic and caring staff ever, every teacher who was even the slightest bit caring or kind to students was fired average teacher there only lasts a couple years with such a ruthless and budget cutting administration that tells teachers “My way or the highway”. The administrative practices and structure in punishing students are a stain on the great reputation of Connecticuts schools

Very poorly run school with lots of very troubled kids who are often unattended and in stressful situations and academics are very standard public school basic courses. Not worth your money when its basically an extra white public school with the price tag of a fancy collage

The lack of training of the employees suggest a poor management which means that it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
