This school is horrible. Can't wait till we can get them in to a different dist. The principal don't care about my kids. She very prej u dice School does have some caring teachers. But the principal and counselor need to learn how to talk to kids. They wonder why they don't come to them when something is wrong.

I hate the school altogether my two children went there and were bullied picked on and the teachers never cared my 6th grade daughters grades kept going down and i asked her why this was happening she said the teacher taught one lesson and expected them to know how to do it even when she asked it was still horrible so i transferd her to a new school district in St.Clair Mo and it is called St.Clair Jr high and it is wonderful her grades used to be F's now there A's and B's!!!

Our school has a wonderful, hard working, and caring staff. The only reason I rated the school 4 stars was because the neighborhood and alot of the students and alot of the parents from the district don't care enough to change it. We need our children to want to succeed and learn but when the are not exposed to people who can show them what that looks like the turn out the same. To often children become a statistic. To everyone who tries to make things better keep trying some do see it. It does matter

Great teachers who really care about the students and push for excellence. Have had two children in the school from 2003-present and have no complaints. Student body is racially diverse but extremely well adjusted to the variance, and as a whole seems polite and well-behaved.

Poor administration and leadership at this school. Has continued to go downhill in the time we have been there.

I was very upset about the leadership and quality of some teachers at this school. The fact that my son was uncomfortable going to school because of being picked on and beat up at school, but his teacher picking on him too was horrible. And NOTHING WAS DONE! Students have realized that they can get away with beating up and picking on each other. He was afraid and had anxiety about going to school. Some days were fine but the bad days outweighed the good. The principal never took any kind of responsibility for the actions of the teachers. The office staff never relayed messages to the principal that a meeting was requested or that a parent wanted to speak with the principal either from a phone call or someone coming into the office. After numerous meetings with the principal and her staff we made a decision to transfer out of the district and she could not have gotten us out of her office any faster. To sum it up the school and the district are a poor excuse for an educational system.

I was profoundly disappointed with this school. While the support staff were engaging and involved, the faculty and administration left a great deal to be desired. Few, if any, had high expectations of the students nor were they supportive of the district policies. I felt as though all were simply going through the motions to collect paychecks. A prent would be wise to interview parents and students when considering this school.

I sent my 3 kids to this school, all these kids had special needs. My 2 girls are deaf, and use interpreters. My son is developmentaly delayed. Mrs. Lyons, and Mrs. Ball were wonderful teachers. They did not great my daughters any differently. They made sure the class were included in learning signs to communicate with my girls as well as involving them into many different things. Ms. Reeves and Ms. Reid was fantastic with my son. The principal there was wonderful. We unfortunately had to move out of state. I compare my kids' new school to the Duchesne Elementary school. Duchesne by far is the B E S T school. When I think about how wonderful those people are,I get homesick and missin' Florissant. You can't go wrong with Duchesne Elementary school. They will THRIVE to do their best to help your child learn!

Duchesne Elementary is an excellent school. My daughter has been a student since kindergarten and she is now finishing up 5th grade. The teachers are great and the student morale is impecable. The zero tolereance policy is heavily enforced as well. Resources at Duchesne are almost overwhelming. This is the kind of elementary school every parent dreams of sending their children.
