FCHS One of Four Schools in KY Rated Three-Stars by the AATF

From FCHS French teacher, Terry Johnson, 

"Recently, the American Association of Teachers of French conducted evaluations of French departments throughout the state of Kentucky. The evaluations covered items such as enrollment, number of levels offered, variety of classes offered, growth, teacher development, extra curricular activities, and student success. The evaluations were done using the Michelin Red Book format which is used throughout Europe to evaluate and rate restaurants and hotels.

At the end of the AATF Kentucky process,schools receiving no stars in the evaluation were considered to be 'works in progress', schools receiving one star in the evaluation process were rated as 'very good', whiles schools receiving two stars are considered 'excellent'. Schools which fell in the evaluation range of three stars were considered 'superior'. Franklin County High School is fortunate to be one of only four schools in the state to receive the three star superior departmental rating. The other three schools rated as superior are: Louisville Collegiate High School, Daviess County High School, and Beaumont Middle School. FCHS also received one of only two overall category awards or" Etoiles d'Or" (Gold Stars) for course offerings and increased enrollment.

This achievement says a great deal about the quality of students and the achievement of students enrolled in the Foreign Language Department at Franklin County High School. Congratulations to our students for this honor they bring to our school."
