Hear from one of our students, Sierra, as she shares about her time at Benjamin Franklin Charter School. It was great to talk with her about her experience!
Q: Tell us a little bit about what you're involved in at school.
Sierra: "I play the flute, and I've been in band for about 8 years now. I've done sports like soccer and volleyball. I've also joined clubs like NHS. I've had the opportunity to participate in quite a few things."
Q: What do you think makes Benjamin Franklin Charter School unique?
Sierra: "I think Benjamin Franklin is unique because we teach morals, and ethics, and virtues, and how to be a good person. We're not just learning facts and what's going to get you a good job - we're learning how to progress in our lives to become better people."
Q: What have been some of the highlights from your time here?
Sierra: "Ever since elementary, they've [teachers] always kind of pushed us - and I love it. You have good teachers who actually teach you and great classmates. We've [classmates] all known each other for so long - since kindergarten! And so there is no real 'popular' or 'unpopular' groups - it's really quite a close environment."
Q: Why are you proud to be a part of BFCS?
Sierra: ""I'm proud to be a part of Benjamin Franklin because we are constantly learning how to be good people, not just students."
