This school is full of good teachers, but the superintendent/principal has let the PTO take over too much control and this has helped a cliche of friends run the school. If your student isn't athletic they will be bullied. Either you and you kid is in the "in crowd" or your nothing. The school is going broke they say, but that doesn't stop the sports from being a top priority and growing. I have heard that they had things going on the the gym/cafeteria/class/ everything room, all winter because of basketball and archery. I used to love this school, but now I'm just overly excited that my kids will not be there much longer.
My children have attended the school for many years, the new Principal is always smiling, and joyful. While at the bookfair I seen him eating with the students at lunch, my son looked at me and said he eats with them often, the old principal never done that.
Mrs. Jackson, thank you for leading & pushing us to "Succcess for All". To my colleagues who have laughed and cried with me on the day to day journey. The National Blue Ribbon School award that Flower Mound School received this week is proof that the leadership has been right on the spot, and teamed with the teaching, Flower Mound School is continuously producing measurable results, and are reaching and teaching each individual student.
I can hardly believe this school year is almost over. Our family was blessed to be included in this district for the first time this year. The classroom teachers care about our children. The school uses many forms of communication so that parents are well-informed about school events and activities. School leadership and high expectations for everyone really make a difference. We are looking forward to another great year.
This school has set the standard in our family. Our kids were well taken care of and nurtured in a positive learning environment. From Pre-K to 3rd grade the teachers and staff even students at Flower Mound have left an impression in my kids' minds forever! And.. I will just be honest. No racism, no favoritism, no ill impressions were made ever! We wish other schools were like this one!
I have had 2 children in Flower Mound and for the record I am in the Flower Mound district unfortunately. My husband who is from the area lied and said it was the best in Lawton. Well if that's true I feel really sorry for Lawton's children. Teachers never call,write or address you in any way if there is a problem. But the principal will threaten to use a paddle on your child. Yes that is exactly what she did when I called for a meeting with her after getting no answers from the teachers.( I called leaving messages, and notes in my child's agenda) She blamed all lack of communication on me even though I could prove I had contacted the teacher with no answer then called my son down and told him she would use the paddle on the shelf in her office on him. At that point I ended the meeting speechless, and told her if she touched him I would file assault on her.
We too are a military family that actually live in the Flower Mound district. I too have had issues with the administration. I agree with the review about not being a military friendly school directed at only the principal and select few office workers. Both of my children had wonderful teachers thoughout the years. The cafeteria workers, secretary, librarian, teachers, aids to the bus driver have been wonderful. I think this school would thrive if it had a new principal to run it, that's my opinion. I believe that's where the frustration of some of the negative reviews are coming from.
Flower Mound school is an average school when it comes to teachers, you either get a good one or a terrible one. The principal is unethical, and unprofessional. If you never have an issue with her or the staff you may believe this is a wonderful school. Once you have any issue she will show her true colors. I used to be involved with volunteering in the classrooms, field trips, and extra activities until I felt like I was being used for free labor. We are a military family, Flower Mound is not a military friendly school. I had a friend's husband have the general called on him for a disagreement with a staff member(after being asked for help). The principal didn't even get his side of the story before trying to ruin his familes livelyhood. She and the staff member embellished the details of dissagreement to be spiteful. Thankfully they were unsuccessful so be warned if your a military family. I would not recommend this school to anyone it needs new leadership an a new building.
