I didn't go there, nor did I live anywhere near it, but, for what its worth, it's a persistently low achieving school in Kentucky with absurd principal and administrative turnover. If you live in the school district, you probably already know this. Top tier students seem to do pretty well, though.

Fleming County High School is absolute top notch. Any good school that you send your children to will do your child justice if you are a supportive parent. You must encourage your child to do well in school and never take up for them when they are wrong. It will not pay off. Teach your children from Day #1 to respect their teachers and administrators and put their academics first and they will succeed. Expect the best and you will get the best. Teachers are trained professionals and should be utilized as such. Teachers are not babysitters nor do they need to put up with a bunch of garbage and disruptions. My students have always done well in the Fleming County School system because I expected them to. Furthermore, I was their first and most important teacher and I hold myself accountable for their education - not the school system.

This school is alright. Not Great. The teachers make sure that they do have many clubs. This year many of the clubs are doing outstanding. FFA, Academic Team, Skills USA...There are a ton of clubs. On the otherhand, as a former student (2 years ago) and an older sister to a current student, the administration is lacking. The teachers are pretty good though.

I feel the quality of education could use much improvement. I feel the administration and staff are covering their heads in the sand. Just read the Flemingsburg Gazette if you really want to know what is going on in your school system. It is ridiculous. We entrust our children to each other. No adults are accountable. However, we all realize that teenagers will push the limits in every area. We need true leaders to control the ring leaders. We need help!

I graduated from the school not long ago and I don't know what these people in the reviews are talking about. I was involved in many activities that weren't football or cheerleading and the school gave us lots of support. The teachers were very involved and wanted us to do well. As for the amount of students dropping out of school you need to look at the community. While I did graduation and go on to law school many students leave school to help their families on the farm or to provide for their own families. There is a different way of life in Fleming county that many outsiders just don't understand. And the way of life doesn't mean the students who go to our school can't be successful. Most graduates from my class went to college and received scholarships. One must remember success is in the eye of the beholder.

Fleming County High School fails to endorse student activities that aren't football or basketball related. Gym time is only available to basketball students and basketball coaches. After researching the music and art programs at the school it was very clear that the activities' funds weren't distributed fairly. I noticed at a home football game that the band had very worn instruments yet the cheerleaders and football team were comended on their new outfits for the season. I did not send my children there and would recommend you look somewhere else for you children as well.

As a former student of Fleming County High School, I do not see where the school is all that bad. I have read the other comments that are posted here and I would have to say that I totally do not agree with them at all. You do not have to be in the 'In Crowd' to be known at FCHS. Like any other school it is what you make of it. The teachers are among the best that I have encountered. This includes teachers that I have dealt with in the 3 years that I have been in college. Now while studying in college to be a high school teacher, Fleming County is where I would like to return to when starting my career. I would have to say that Fleming is a top school and should be commended on doing great by its students!

Fleming County High School could improve greatly. They dont give their students as much support as they need. All the students are treated differently from each other,if you are not a favorite among most of the staff or if you do not make good grades or have good attentendence then you are looked down upon. They have alot of teens droping out these last couple of years because of the way they get treated. Fleming County is not a good school to send your child to especially if you want them to have careing teachers. If i could have started all over i wouldnt have sent my daughter there, and now i know not to send my other two.
