There are too many kids in the classes. The teachers only teach one way and if you don't learn that way you're out of luck. They take schools of choice and can't take care of their own tax payers children. I was very disappointed. I'm not sure if it's the teachers or the system. After 3 weeks I pulled my kid.
We moved from georiga to flushing thinking/and were told it is the best school.HA! what a joke! okay the school it self is nice, but i think the million dollars middle school has done is a over comp. for the lack of teaching skills. the kids are snobby, they think there better than everyone, news flash! your not. No one is better than the next.As for there special education department they really SHOULD look into hiring someone who is willing to prepare your child for college, NO READING REQUIREMENTS, NO HOMEWORK,NO CURSIVE WRITING. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED to bring your books home. WHAT A A--BACKWARDS PLACE TO LIVE. i dislike michigan.
Our experiene at FJH has been good. The new building is beautiful and the teachers are great! The biggest problem is the kids tend to be on the snobby and rude side. Flushing Community as a whole tends to have a snobby air!
OUr experience at FJH has been very positve! We love it here, and there are great classes, plenty of good teachers, and lot and lots of awesome extracurricular activities. Overall, a great school. We Flushing Junior High!
