I would like to see more educators involved in helping the students improve on there grades and test scores. A helping hand on students that really needs it, is a must. For the most part, No pre-teen/teenager should feel like his or her subjects like Math, English, and science are hard to understand. A student should understand his/her HW assignment with at least some ease and be able to practice it at home. If they are unable to do the HW because of the educator not being clear when disgusting it in class then how do you except them to actually finish their assignment in the first place? If some of the educators of Fillmore High School are bored of their teaching methods then why not change it up? Am not saying that the teaching methods are bad but am not saying it's good. Letting not one but several students fall behind should be an educators worst nightmare.
I liked Fillmore High. Teachers were ok, parent involvement was great. I would like to see more programs for advanced learners.
My daughter attends FHS and participates in as many honors classes as possible. Like any organization, some areas are weak, others strong, depending upon the individual teachers she's had. For such a small school, I would say that Honors/AP programs are definitely available for those that want them, but the overall quality needs to be improved. So far, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being best, I'd rate the programs in terms of preparing my daughter for college, as follows: English: 7, Mathematics:7, Foreign Language: 5, Science:7, History:8, Music: 9, Art: 8. I think the administration has a good handle on discipline and gangs are not an issue at school.I think the adminsitration doesn't do enough to get rid of the few bad teachers, although they do seem to keep most good ones. Turnover is an issue though. Hope this helps.
A pretty good school despite small size and teacher turnover as of late
Concerned about high teacher turnover. Great band program. Great soccer program. Concern about if students are challenged in their studies.
Fillmore High School has provided me with a positive experience with the schoolwork, teachers, an the extracurricular activities. It may be small in size but it is very big in spirit.
Not a big school in size, but big in everything else that matters including teachers who care and most of all in importance of the students, Fillmore is big in spirit.
