The preschool teacher will physically hurt and neglect your child if you send them there,

You will not find another school around that is as great as Flying Hills. Small school feel, with very dedicated teachers and a principal and staff that truly know how to work together to create a community of learners and doers! This school gave my daughter the desire for Fine Arts, and when she graduated was very sad. But...she has the desire now to get involved in theater and I've seen her self confidence soar!! Thank you Flying Hills teachers and staff!

I am so biased about our school. We moved here 6yrs ago and did not know how fortunate we would be come. Our school has the FAME program, which everyone starts automatically in 3rd grade. We have art, science, a P.E program thanks to a dedicated PTA family who pays for it. In fact one of the reasons our school is so great, besides the dedicated teachers and on top of it principal is the fact that we have a great PTA which does so many events that bring the parents, teachers and students together practically monthly. Our kids have learned guitar (how many schools offer music anymore). We have an amazing group of teachers that help with the children that need that little extra bit of care, i.e. ADHD, Asperbergers. Flying Hills is a public school and is this little hidden jewel in the neighborhood. We are so blessed to be fortunate enough to attend there.

I am a Flying Hills Alumni class of 2000. I absoulutely loved this school and the FAME program. I would say that yes a lot of the school/art work is done at home. But it taught me organizational skills and leadership because I had to get the scool work done. I do feel the FAME program has slipped and gone downhill some but the teachers have changed since I was there. And last I noticed the FAME program was on the uphill of getting back to what it use to be when MS. Abel, Mrs. Estegren, Mr.Jackam, and Mrs.Barnes/Ms. Bunday. If I had kids right now I would definately still have my kids go to this school.

I am glad I got to see the FAME program before the beginning of its decent. My daughters last year at this school was very disappointing. Program quality has declined and it, sadly, has not been replaced with rich curriculum or creative innovative teaching. Fortunately parent involvement is high so the school maintains a "feel" of a strong force, but I see that slowly changing as well.

Parents who think Flying Hills is a good school will change their tune once their kids go to middle school and see how under-prepared they are. The arts program is very watered-down, and most of the arts work and projects are done at home. It will get worse when the entire school goes "arts" because unqualified teachers will suddenly have to teach music, drawing, etc. I'm glad we left.

great school in a great neighborhood. love the teachers and staff, great school curriculum, kids really do well academically.


Posted May 26, 2010

My daughter went to this FAME school. Her best friend went there, so we moved her into the district. It has not been a disapointment,Her grades have improved as a result of expressing her self through the arts.

This school has strong leadership.. it challenges the children academically and allows them to express themselves fine arts

The Flying Hills FAME program was a big disappointment to us. The academics were very poor, and most of the arts activities had to be done at home, such as art contests, song preparation, etc. The curriculum is based on constant projects, so most of your weekends are tied up making animal dioramas, missions, etc. The teachers are not well-trained in the arts, so going to this school will not make your child a star. On top of this, the teachers expect the parents to grade most of the papers because they are 'too busy.' We pulled our child out in the middle of the year, and it was a shock to see how far behind he was compared to the new school. This is not a school I would recommend.

This is a school with a small town feel to it. It has a huge volunteer network, and if anyone wants to be involved they need to just speak up and a volunteer position will be theirs. This school has the FAME program, where you can sing dance or work backstage, something for everyone. They have a huge Fall Carnival with rides, the children are allowed to wear respectful costumes for Halloween. They have a field day, lunch with Dad day, bike rodeo, school dance, band 4-6th grades, new field grass and playground equip, Father Daughter Dance, Talent Show...there are so many neat things, a great principal, and a dedicated PTA. The teachers are excellent. I have a high schooler who attended there and another current student and I can honestly say that the problems in the past with the FAME program playing favorites is just that-a thing of the past.

Leadership is not very strong. Teachers are hit or miss. PTA is an irritating force that seems to self serve its members children. Best thing going on there is the band teacher, Mr Kitt is awesome!

If I had a child just entering public elementary school, would I choose Flying Hills? Yes...the staff and teachers are looking out for the kids and seek innovative teaching methods. The school offers instrumental music for 4-6 grade, it's a safe and clean campus nestled in a nice neighborhood. The PTA is very strong and provides a variety of opportunities for parent participation. However, I would not choose it for its FAME Magnet. The 3rd and 4th grade program has remained intact and effectively provide arts education in an equitable and educational fashion. 5th and 6th grade is basically a competition for 'the most talented. Teacher's pets and staff member's children are cast in the best parts of the only production. Visual arts has virtually disappeared and parents are constantly hounded for funds to pay for overly expensive productions.

Flying Hills Elementary is a great school! The new Principal is a 'breath of fresh air' and has been a wonderful addition to the already strong staff. The teachers and staff are always willing to go the extra mile for the children and parents alike. FAME is an excellent program and remains strong. I have had two of my own children go through the FAME program, as well as a niece and nephew. I have never found that the FAME teachers play favorites. Their screening process for performances are fair and impartial. The FAME program is an excellent option for children who have a strong interest in fine arts and a willingness to work hard academically. I would definitely recommend Flying Hills and the FAME program to anyone who wishes their children to attend a school where the teachers and staff really care about the kids. The PTA is phenomenal!

My son loved his teacher last year, but I found the parent group stuck-up and snobby. If you aren't in their 'group' forget about trying to fit in with them.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
