Flying hills elementary has had issues for years, If you are not with the click FAME or GATE than you aren't treated respectfully by these parents that seem to run the school. So it is not the leadership of this school. I feel certain parents have the tendancy, especially when things don't go their way will turn around and blame there own issues on the princiapl. So they are using her as a scape goat. There is so much favortism (by certain teachers and parents) of certain children that it makes the other children feel bad. This is not right! In fact, our principal, if there are any issues, she does address them. So years of this nonsense has reached it's peak and has gotton much worse. Flying Hills has a great principal, changing principals will not resolve these issues.
Great school! However many things have changed under the current leadership. I look forward to seeing what will come of Flying Hills under new leadership next year. The teachers are wonderful. So many great programs.
I would not reccomend this school to anyone. I am not pleased with the community at all, parents are running teachers. Not acceptable. My two children are being taken out.
Good school in a good community. Majority of the teachers are very dedicated but a few seem at the end of their career. Newer principal seems very by the book. She is more of a talker and not a listener. However, she does make time in her calendar when needed for discussion.
I would have to say this school has changed quite a bit. The quality of leadership has changed drastically, as the PTA parent involvement is too clickish and very one sided. The teachers are excellent I might add, however too much striving for EXCELLENCE can make a child feel less than if pushed and rushed to hard. The teachers are great but there needs to be some changes in the way the school is run!
Flying Hills is a good school. The FAME program is super offering fine arts, band, singing, drawing, dancing, etc. I believe the parent involvement is pretty good.
This school has excellent curriculum programs with three strands to choose from: Fine Arts, GATE - intellectually gifted, and science/technology. All three of my kids have had a great experience in the Fine Arts program.
Great School with supportive community spirit. Wonderful teachers, especially in the GATE program, dedicated to excellence.
Flying Hills is a great school! My son has excelled in math since his enrollment for 1st grade here. Though, his Language skills are lacking his teacher has spent alot of time one-on-one with him, including before school tutoring to help him get better. Also, the school has a 'Rolling Reader' program to help kids with their reading. Parent involvement/volunteering is highly encouraged. The Principal has a real interest in the students, even opening the auditorium one evening for just my sons' class to put on a Christmas performance for their parents. The school does a lot of fun activities throughout the year including Bike Rodeo, Twin Day, Jog-a-thon, and numerous performances put on by the FAME program. This was a great experience for my child, and if we weren't moving, I wouldn't be transferring him.
I have two children in this school. This is the most amazing elementary school I've ever witnessed. The parental support is great. The principal is just precious.
Flying Hills is an excellent school! The teachers are caring and truly care about the school and their students. The FAME program is excellent!
