"As an alum and a former school committee member I highly recommend the FCTS. Every parent of a 7th or 8th grade student should give serious consideration to the FCTS for their child's high school education."

"I liked cooking so much that I went to a technical high school where I majored in culinary arts. While attending Franklin County Technical School, my chef instructor, Ben Pike, was a huge influence on me. He drove me to succeed and taught me what the hospitality industry was all about. From there, I went on to study Hospitality Management at the University of Massachusetts."
