Take your child to this school. I am a former student of frisbie middle school, and the teachers and principals of this school are amazing teachers. I use to be a failing student at other schools, didn't know what i was doing until i got here. I am now a principal's honor roll student getting straight A's. The teacher's offering tutoring to a student and even have a tutoring academy every other month, for students who really need it. The teachers reach out to the students. They treat these us like as if we were their own children. They keep us safe and have our best interests at heart. Does this school have it's trouble with students? Yes, every school does, and if you really think that this is a bad school just because a couple of students get in a fight, i want you to name one school that doesn't have their students getting into fights ! They get the parents involve with the students education. the racial groups in this school doesn't matter, what your color is or where you came from , doesn't exist. Because when you are here, you are treated as a wonderful equal. Bring you're child here, you won't regret it.

It is interesting that every student is an A student until they get to a school where they cause trouble and have a difficult time. Of course, it is the teacher is is wrong here and not the parent or the child. Sometimes as a parent it is hard to look in the mirror because one doesn't like what one sees.

To all parents who have spent years teaching their children values and moral,with praise and understanding,given them pride in the truth and the importance of respect for adults and others...you will be appauled at this school!The humiliate instead of teach, they spend more time scolding and belittling than listening, even when a child has proven to be falsly accused,they don't care. Many parents agree. They gave my son Fs and Ds when he was an A student 2 mo.s ago and principals honor roll! Only because they were upset he was tranfering out! The principal, who is never there denied the transfer and the teachers were petty when they gave transfer grades, but I will take his A report card from his new school along with last years and the 2 mo. one from Frisbee and let them explain how in 8 wks the taught so terrible these grades were warrented!

I dislike this school. The school focuses too much on petty issues rather than teaching the students. I feel that students do not come first. Extra-curricular activities are not available to students. The students need to be motivated and shown that they are important.

Frisbie was an awesome school. I spent 3 years there, believe me, it's awesome there. The diversity is amazing. The teachers are cool, and Mr. Mitchell was the best principal the school's ever had.
