Blue Jacket Flint is a great school. We have a great principal that cares about the well being of the students and the staff. Most of the teacher are very good with the kids. There is a few that do raise their voices and yell at the students to much, we have been luck not to have those teachers. I would like to say that the art and music teacher are amazing!!!!!. I could not ask for better special teachers. My daughter also likes the gym and library teachers. My only complaint is that it seems like there is only a handful of us parents that volunteer and help out. I understand both parent probably work full time so not alot of parent can help but it would be nice to have more parent support.

Teachers especially in the upper grades make frequent use of "group punishment" (loss of recess, silent lunch, extra homework, yelling at the class), for the misbehavior of only a few students. High-achieving well-behaved students are left to teach themselves. Parent-teacher conferences are minimal and superficial in that parents are shown standardized test scores and sent on their way with no discussion of how to further challenge a high-performing student. Nightly homework often exceeds the district standard of 10 minutes per grade level. There is a serious lack of joy in the upper grade level class environments. I agree with the prior reviewers who stated that if a parent has a choice, find another school for your child unless you want your child to detest school for the rest of his/her life.

Interesting how most of the positive comments are from teachers that obviously work there. This school needs an overhaul with an attitude adjustment towards the children that are forced to walk through the doors everyday! If I could afford to move and put my kids in a different school, I would do it in a heartbeat! If you want your child's love for learning crushed like a pancake...bring them to this school.

Very supportive PTA. Many activities for students. Choir, strings, art, band, student council, morning announcer, fitness, community involvement, physical education, library, and computer labs. The teachers are caring and work very hard to make sure each child is learning, no matter what their challenges. Parents are active and supportive. A great school for every student!

I have greatly enjoyed my teaching experience at Bluejacket Flint. The staff, students, and parents of BJF are a close family always supporting one another to ensure success of all. Teachers collaborate on a weekly basis to create positive and memorable learning experiences. Our parents go above and beyond with their involvement in and out of the classroom. Students are polite, hardworking, and have many opportunities to participate in activities and leadership positions. I feel very fortunate to be part of this family!

All three of my children have gone to school at Bluejacket-Flint. I have had nothing but positive experiences there! The teachers truly care about the children and set a very high standard of expectations for their students. My children went on to middle school and high school very well prepared thanks to the training they received at BJF! I owe a great deal of thanks to all the teachers who helped my children along the way.

BJF is a wonderful place to be a teacher and student! Parents are extremely supportive and eager to help in the classroom. They work together with teachers to help their children, as well as other children be successful in learning. Students at BJF work hard and participate in many extra-curricular activities such as math club, choir and a fitness club. Students and teachers are constantly rising awareness, money and goods for those less fortunate. It's a wonderful place to be!

I have the same problem as the last parent. Everytime my child gets in trouble for talking they expect me to take him to the doctor to get medicated. One teacher told me at a parent teacher conference that "I guarantee the problem won't stop until he is medicated" which were her exact words. After taking my son to numerous doctors, we find out he is not ADHD and it still seems to come up at every parent teacher conference. I have had to deal with so many problems at this school that my recommendation is that if you have another option in a school, go there.

BJF is a really god school because everyone is on board when there is a project. They take part in many physical activities and they try to keep the school clean as far as the halls, students, and the recycling. It Rocks!

My son has attended Bluejacket Flint for almost seven years now and the overall experience has been good. The leadership at the school with Dr. Tinsley and the new Vice Principal is excellent. Kids for the most part seem to listen to the teachers and respect each other. I have noticed a lack of male teachers in the school. The majority of teachers are female and I've heard that some give special treatment to the female students there.
