Staff doesn't even follow correctly with parents unless you go above their head. they have no clue about what is expected as far as monitoring or preventing bullying and when faced with it try their best to sweep it under the rug and come up with excuses.
about 50 percent of the teachers care and the other half are probably overwhelmed with the group of kids that attend here. staff don't take bullying seriously and don't have a genuine concern for the children. only there to get paycheck have no policies and procedures in place and if there is they don't have clue what it is.
staff is ridiculous no enforcement of rules the kids are out of control along with bullying issues. always have excuses instead of solutions to problems. a lot of kids go here that shouldn't they lie about address to stay out of columbus public then come to south western city schools and make them worse. if you move into this district check your schools before you do if you care about your kids!! franklin heights is same way.
The teachers were the worst of the gossipers; made fun of the students; mocked them; gave inappropriate assignments, etc., etc.. I cannot even begin to describe the horrible treatment & mental anguish bestowed on the students.
Finland Middle School is so welcoming and is a great school!!! So many people say that it is not a quality school, but I don't know why they say that! It is a great school! The education is great and it is a pleasure for me to attend here! I enjoy the friendly staff! Most all of my teachers were excellent and challenged me as they should. Mrs. Diehl and Mrs. Wissman, to name a few, were excellent teachers! I truely enjoyed having them!!! I truly enjoy going to this school! All the staff puts forth 110% effort, and I truly appreciate it!!! Go Finland! A+++! -Alex
I love attending Finland Middle School. The teachers there are great and the students treat you like brothers and sisters. The staff there at finland are caring and gives 100% effort. My pre-algebra teacher (Mrs. Dodson) is probably the best teacher I have ever had. She makes math fun and I accually look forward to going to her class. So to sum it up, Finland is just a fun place to be with education included.
This way by far one of the best schools ive been to. The teachers are nice, caring, and hard working. Even with the disruptive students the teachers never lose their cool. Even though people think that finland is such a bad school, its really not. -Erica Woodring
