The teachers at Florin are fantastic. They do care about their students and try to make learning fun. It's a great atmosphere, with focus on great electives programs, high level classes, and art education. While there has been bad reputation about South Sacramento, this school maintains in a good academic standing.
Amazing school! not only does the California state teacher of the year teach there the students are all respectful to my handicapped son. (at least that's what he tells me) Great school! highly reccommend.
Florin High school is an amazing school! The Teachers care about everyone. I think students make school out to be what they want it to be. Parents need to get involved and stop pointing fingers! I hear parents complain about things but I never see them at the school making a change. If you are not involved then you have no voice quit complaining!!! I see parents who don't speak English more involved. I am proud my son is a Panther! He is college bound and I thank the School for their involvement! You go Florin.
I felt so humiliated... After getting few terse answers regarding college financial aid questions on the second call weeks later, I had already lost the will to call her again, and yet she told my son to tell me not to call her again. However, my son said she was nice, and he spoke with her at the counseling office every day. Thank you. Parent
Florin High school is a joke dont send your kids there if you can send them anywhere else PE lockers are constantly being broken into my son has had is stuff locked in a school locker stolen three different times 75% of the kids are lowlifes and the principal and the rest of the staff will treat your kid like they're lowlifes because they don't consider the 25% of students that are not lowlifes so they are all treated the same. Florin high will call your house and threaten you but when you ask for their help with your child they will tell you the have more important things to do
My son attends Florin HS and I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED with the education that he is receiving. My child is not learning the academic skills that would prepare him for college. The education that he is receiving is setting him up to fail when he becomes an adult. I check his binder every day and all I see are a bunch of dittos that keep him busy. This is not an appropriate and fair education that he is entitled to. I do not see any essay writing skills or critical thinking skills in which are the foundation for college writing. It doesn't make any sense that he has a 3.9 GPA because I don't see exam scores and homework grades to prove it. He doesn't study, read, or hardly do any homework at home. This is not a great school.
i personally think florin is not a qood school to send your children, and thats just my opinion
I think Florin is a very good school. I have to boys who attend Florin and are doing wondrtful they are involved in FFA, ROTC, Soccer, Avid and wrestling. I think parents judge the school harshly without knowing the facts. Florin has many opportunities for students, also school is what the parents and students make of it. If you are not involved then you shouldn't make comments. I am very proud of the Panthers and I am very proud of the Teachers & staff . People listen to rumors that are not exactly true. Come visit the school you may form your own opinion. Go Panthers
This school was a big disappointment. The students ruled the teachers and were not able to learn.
Great teachers. School is in transition looking for a new principal. Lots of diversity, ethnic, socio-economic, and otherwise. Lots of choices for students.
I have had 3 students graduate from Florin, and my youngest is currently attending. Florin has wonderful academic programs, especially two academys-BET and FFA. The school has won several awards, including in the academic fields. The teachers care about the students, and want them to succeed. There are many activities for the students, not necessarily academic. We have a wide diversity of people from all the over the world-students, staff, and parents. The only negative thing I would say is there is a great lack of parent involvement, and I don't know how to solve the problem.
Walk around campus and look at the grades posted up. Try to find successful students with A's. Try. The majority of students here don't do well. The AP pass rates are pitiful. Example: AP chemistry is about 1% (averaged over all years the AP chemistry program was available). All the good teachers are moving to the new school on Calvine. They know when to abandon a sinking ship. So should you.
Overall I believe that Florin is a very good school. Unlike what many people in Elk Grove think. They should not judge a school on rumors and heresay until they actually visit the school. False pretenses is not something that you want to take lightly when attending school. So I encourage anyone who has not yet attended Florin to come visit and they will see that the Mighty Panthers are something to be proud of.
This school is pretty cool. I graduated from Florin in 2003 and there are no regrets. It's probably one of the best schools in the Elk Grove District. I was in their dance company & drill team and everyone is hugely talented. I loved the classes and the people; whom are always nice, and the teachers are very supportive and optimistic. There are students who are stuck up and there are those who are spoiled.... but everyone gets along. Fights are always happening but this was the best four years of school for me.
This School is all around awesome! The teachers are great and very caring towards each and every student and is willing to mentor their pupils, one-on-one to give them a broader knowledge of understanding. I am a graduate from Florin High School and was well informed about the meanings of life and the importance of a great education. Due to the fact that the administration is often involved with their students, this school is a overall-honorable school to attend. Florin High School will likely teach you the benefits of life and prepare you for higher learning without fail.
