My children always attended private schools. So, I decided to give public school a chance. I am so impressed with all of the resources that they had available. My son was 12 and going to the 7th grade when he started attending Fleming Middle School and my daughter was 11 years old going to the 6th grade. I must admit I was a little scared and wondered how they would adapt to public school. They adjusted very well. The teachers and ancillary staff was polite and helpful to navigate us through the process and adjusting to public school. The teachers maintain communication through e-mail and occasionally by telephone. One teacher called me just to tell me what a pleasure and joy it was to have my daughter in her class and she complimented her on her advance critical thinking skills. I was so impressed. My son has graduated and my daughter is entering the 8th grade. I have since moved and obtained a interdistrict permit so that my daughter can graduate from Fleming we have to travel a long ways but it's worth it. I also like the afterschool program Boys and Girls club on campus the child can stay there until 6 pm. Fleming is a great school!!!!!

The school is not as bad as many of you may think I attend this school and all of my teachers care how I do. And there are fights but only a few and they are only once in a while this past year I have only heard of a hand full of fights but they were all broken up before they even started. From personal experience its a pretty good school


Posted June 8, 2012

Its okay I guess I was a former student Ive had some of my best memories there but there is fights like once week and people curse alot. The teachers really dont care about your grade they pass you to the next grade even if you might have a D and there is alot of drama. So I advise parents to not to send your child to fleming.

As a parent or a student if you bring a concern to their attention they seek to find a way to fault or punish you (i.e. problem student, or bad parent) instead of fixing the problem.This school is a clear sign of what's wrong with LAUSD and district 8 as a whole. I've taken incidents all the way to the top only to find whatever chains of command that are in place are only in place to look like there's a system in place for resolution when there really isn't a solution to any problems we as parents may have because once the teacher and principal enter into the hiring contract there isn't anything that can cancel it or else the teacher sues! They will transfer your child across town before they fire or let that teacher go! I've experienced it one time too many with Dist 8 to the point it's deterred me as a parent from even bringing up any concerns I many have because they go down on paper and that's about it! I'm in the process now of making this my last year dealing with LAUSD as a whole. i wanna get far far away lol For those of you still within its parameters...I pity you, the district fears the unions wrath far more than it will ever care for your child's happiness and education.

My child was made part of the 504 Plan last year to assist with ADHD and scholastic issues. When I inquired about continuation of the plan this year during the 1st week of school, I was told that the school was presently just trying to get kids in the proper class and attend to other issues. My attempts to speak with the school counselor were seldom successful---the phone extension is unanswered most of the time and I had to leave messages with a different school office. Most of the time my messages were not responded to. Now that the 5 week progress reports have been issued, my child has 2 F's, 2 D's and 2 C's. Not only will this affect my child's later grade, but also my child's self esteem has been negatively impacted. I am trying to "work the system" and my child is being "left behind". However, on a positive note, I do like my child's teachers thus far--hope they can keep the momentum going.

no baaad school . ive gotten two items stolen and the school didnt do anything about it .


Posted April 6, 2011

I agree with some of the parents about the lack of communicatin at this school. The only time I knew my chold was not doing well was after the report card was sent home and by then the failing grade was no repairable. My student who was a 4.0 last year had 2 F's on his report card and there was no notice sent home to inform me of his danger of failing. When this was brought to the atention of the staff they were very non chalant about the situation and only wanted to focus on the negative instead of helping me to find out what went wrong. This is a joke and he won't be there next year.

fleming is the most great school in district 8 this school has great teachersand staff members


Posted May 1, 2010

I have two children attending this school and I am very disappointed with the teachers and staff. Communication between teachers and parents is practically non-existent. There is no indication of how well your child is doing until the report cards come out. My son and daughter do not get their daily assignments back after being graded so how are they to know how well they are doing? When asked about this the teachers I questioned stated that they do not have time to grade the assignments. They only grade the tests. How are the students supposed to know how well they are doing? I actually had one teacher tell me that he doesn't have time because he's on a soccer team after school. I see very little interest from the teachers I've talked to about actually teaching students. Most seem to be nothing more then baby sitters.

I was excited that this school was in my district. Compared to the area middle school, Fleming is so much better. You dont see kids hanging outside before school. The only downfall is that not all the teachers communicate with the parents. I have emailed, called and left messages and even shown up to open house and still no feedback. I understand that the teachers have lots of students but then they shouldnt complain that parents dont get involved. When we do we get no feedback.

I feel that this school needs a lot of improvement, my grandson attends this school and its not safe for students, there are to many problems with little or no supervison, at this time we are looking to remove him from this school.

fleming is too crowded and its filled with wannabe people. there needs to be more teachus nd supervision. they should have a Pacific Islander group.

Fleming has great teachers full of energy always motivating their students. Family Math Night was a great event for parents and their kids to interact. I loved all the games and teachers were very helpful.

I am a parent of a 6th grader. I was scared to send my son to this school because of rumor, however we have made it a good situation. My child is involved with the school for advanced studies and I stay involved. As for comments on the other kids in school - teachers and school admin do NOT get to pick who lives in their districts or attend their schools. It is a parent's job to teach behavior well before this level of education. I am staying involved with the school and talking to my child on a regular basis. He is having a great year and has made great friends. The school is older, but has made my son feel safe and gets the job done. I would like to see the neighbors of the school and the city of Lomita support the school more.

My daughter entered Fleming through Magnet in 6th grade, now in the 7th. Magnet students can't take advantage of extra curricular activities due to lack of funding for bus transportation. Security needs to be more prevalent especially after school because of the kids hanging out around campus. My daughter was a cheerleader in 6th grade & sometimes I picked her up from practice early & didn't let her change clothes in the locker room because of no supervision & older kids (male & female) hanging around the door. Her cell phone was stolen out of the locker room in 6th grade & she witnessed another student going through others backpacks in 7th grade. The teachers & counselors are adequate, but as with any teacher/school the parent has to step up & get involved. If I had known more about the school I would have examined my options a little closer.

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.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
