some people say your "odd" years of schooling are the hardest. Florence Middle has proven it wrong...but not in a good way. I have been thru both grades (7-8) and both have been incredibly hard. teachers don't really pay attention to the student's needs and worry more about disciplining student for very minimal infractions. also the administrators allow the teachers to have their own rules for their classroom and every teacher's rules are different. I have not enjoyed being at this school at all. just transfer to brooks..... anything would be better.
this school is the worst anyone could put there child in. talk about a sardine can, they are cramming more and more kids into this one school then they can handle. how can the children get any one on one time with the teachers. my daughter hated it. this was formerly coffee high school, i would like to know who the genius was who came up with the idea of compacting so many students into one school. stop buying ipads for the teachers and put it to use on fixing the schools. be sensible with the tax payers dollars. these kids are our future.
florence middle is terrible! the teachers and staff worry to much over dress codes and not enough on other things such as basic academics! i am a student here and i believe these things should be changed!!
I am a student at Florence Middle School. In my opinion, this isn't the greatest school to go to in the county. The teachers are strict and often freak out about things that really have nothing to do with class. For example, instead of teaching our classes, the teachers obsesss about our dress code. IN my opinion, the dress code should be looked at and changed a little. It is very hard to find clothes that fit the dress code and thruthfully, i'd rather just have uniforms. They offer poor administration here, and unfair rules and policies. They are very strict about things that dont really matter and the teachers dont really pay attention to things that do matter.
Florence Middle School is a great place to be. Unfortunately, the next step is Florence High School and that is a school fraught with problems, poor administrators, extreme discipline. It's sad that the only option for our children after the wonderful experience that is FMS, is that one high school.
Florence Middle School, which was formerly Weeden Middle School, has been fantastic for our son. The teachers are fantastic and caring. Students are given oportunity to seek extra help if it is needed. We have been extremely impressed with the principal; he is truly the most gifted individual I have ever seen interact with this age children. We are so fortunate to have such an exceptional middle school. If only the Florence High School could carry on the excellent education these children get in the middle school, we'd have a superior system. Unfortunately, the high school has a lot of work to do to achieve the quality of education these kids are accustomed to and deserve.
We transferred here last year. To be honest, I was concerned about Weeden before enrolling. I certainly did not need to be. This is a wonderful school. The prinicpal is outstanding! Discipline issues are managed with excellence. Academic achievers are honored and encouraged, while lower achieving students are nurtured. We have been delighted with the quality of education.
My daughter attended Weeden for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. I can truthfully say that Weeden provided the only positive school experience for her. She was challanged by the teachers, respected by other students and greatly encouraged by the administration. Even she would readily tell you what a great experience Weeden was for her. I am proud to let people know that I was a Weeden parent.
My child attended both 7th and 8th grades. She regained a love of school that she had lost. The entire staff goes beyond what would be expected. Florence City is blessed to have a Weeden Middle School.
Thankfully, there are a few good teachers at Weeden but most of them seem completely out of touch with what is happening among the students. It is a poorly run school from the top down. This is so unforunate as the lives of these children will be affected for the rest of their lives. I hope they get their act together at Weeden before it is too late for the students.
This is the worst school my child has ever attended. The latest of a whole list of complaints that I have is that the asst. principal insists on displaying a flyer with a quote that is grammatically incorrect after this has been pointed out to her on more than one occasion. She 'created' this flyer herself, thereby showing her lack of education to the entire school. Our children should expect schools to teach them the right way to do things, not the wrong way!
