Flickinger Elementary School5

I have been very impressed with this school. I have two students who are attending Flickinger right now. The principal is approachable and involved in nearly every activity. He cares about the kids and families. The teachers have been outstanding and have had to adjust their instruction for the new testing. The state test schools are above state average and there is a genuine push to teach every kid. I only wish they would bring back the instrumental music to what it used to be.
Flickinger is an outstanding school. The principal Mr. Steere is very approachable,the teachers are wonderful and go out of their way for their students. Parent involvement is is very high and my two kids love this school.
A good school with a good caring staff and good parental involvement. The building is older and small, but with time and bond issues, things have picked up. I rated the school (above) and don't believe anyplace is 'perfect' hence no fives were given. A four, is a good solid mark from my perspective. I put many a child through this school and am pleased to have done so. A 'good job' to Flickinger!
Flickinger has a lot of academic programs like ATG and everything. Students can start playing instruments in 4th grade(strings) and then play in the band in 5th grade. They go to gym class one day a week. Parents do a lot of work for the school. The parents have a big part.
