the school is horrible for a child with diabetes, the teachers are uneducated about the disease and when the 504 plan is done, most do not show up for the meeting. My daughter has been here 3 years now and out of 5 or 6 teachers she is lucky to have 1 a year that sees her potential.

So Flinn Middle School, huh? Well, in my opinion, this is the best school you could send your son/daughter to. I was a student there for all 3 years. This year was my last year there. I've made a lot of memories with the teachers, students and everyone else there. The councilors help with problems when you need them. The 8th grade assistant principle, Mr. Cooper was a great assistant principle. He would always talk to the kids when they needed to be talked to about behavioral issues and things. He'd give referrals when needed, not for stupid reasons. He was a cool and laid back guy all around. Too bad he isn't gonna be there anymore. I'm gonna miss 8th grade. and Flinn. 8th grade was the best year of my life. I wish it wouldn't have ended so fast. 9th grade starts for me next year... without my friends with me, it's not going to be the same. I'll miss Flinn.

I'm a student at Flinn Middle School. Next year I am attending The 8th grade. I have been at Flinn sense the 6th grade. This is defenitly one of the best schools. Other schools have 6 bomb threats every month. And all the time I have been at Flinn Only ONE has accured. I met great friends at my school. And the teachers are amazing. The lunches are a little greasy. But you'll eat it anyway. :) We have a snack bar with tons of different things to get. The princables are pretty strict. But they don't cramp your style. Hall ways tend to be very roomy...Well...Sometimes. We just had Share fest come and clean up our school about a year ago...and the lockers went from Icky green. To shiny black. You defenitly get treated equally at Flinn. Everything is wonderful at Flinn. I wouldn't recomend another Jr. High.

I'm a student at this school!I use to enjoy going there but since budget cuts its gone very much down hill!The curriculum has seemed to been getting easier each year i'm there.I think mostly in part of the teachers.This will be my last year attending Flinn.There is a limmted amount of classes,sports,and the halls,classes,and entire school is over populated.I will be attending the gifted program at Auburn High hopfully my Freshmen year.Flinn didn't help me become very well prepared for the gifted test or any test at Flinn Middle school.Thats why test scores at the school are some of the lowest in district 205.Just send your kids somewhere else!!Trust me you don't want your kids to go there!I mean do want them to have sucess.
