Very unimpressed with this school. You are not allowed to wal your child to their classroom and the front office lady Paula needs some real personal skills. You are not informed of all functions. It's one big mess. They also need to realize that children are not robots and not perfect. My sons kindergarten teacher lacks major social skills. She will barely look anyone in the eye. This school was a huge disappointment. My child will not go back there next year!!! It's a joke.
The vice principal yelled and called us repeated because we dropped our children off at the front of the school. You are only allowed to drop them off in the back until the bell rings. Both time we did this the bell was ringing in 2 minutes from when we dropped them off. This school is not as good as the test score say. A 1st grade teacher told me my child was rude because she didn't say ma'am to her. Very disappointed and pulled our children out of the school.
I like this school, but I had a bad experience with a Kindergarten teacher who had a negative attitude with my child. It is full-day kindergarten and very busy. The pressure is on for these kindergartners to be ready for testing in first grade. I think the focus should be on the children not testing. Working with the ones that need extra help should be important, not just deciding to hold children back to keep test scores high. Studies show that holding back children is not that effective. My child in third grade had a fabulous teacher and loved participating in the town Council.
Very unimpressed with all the security I encountered when I dropped my daughter off late, I was told I could walk her back to her classroom, if I waited to be escorted by an administrator. This is my third child to attend, and I have never had this problem before, they simply had you sign in. There was also an administrator stationed in the main hallway, and one outside the front door, all looking very official with walkie-talkies. All this seemed like a bit much too me. Posting here, and writing a letter to DD2 Officials.
My two children attended this school, my oldest had not so great of teachers for four years. I was reteaching many of the fundamental facts when we got home, due to lack of proper teaching and some teachers on cell phones. My other child, did well, got lucky and had great teachers. I ended up taking them both out and it was the best decision I've ever made. If you like your kids to learn touch points for addition and ryhmes for multiplication, then you'll love this school...if you like them to learn it the old school way, then find a different school. Also, one more note, they definatly teach for the tests. On a positive level, great ART, MUSIC, DRAMA AND PTA, though.
I am impressed with this school. The teachers are awesome, the environment is warm and inviting. I always feel welcomed when I am there.
Parents are kept informed about school events and happenings. You feel like you know what is going on.
It is where my children went to school and I work there. It feels like our home away from home. The teachers are the best!!
The faculty and teachers are the best. They truly care about every student.
It is like one big family fostering the love of learning in all children.
I love that Flowertown Elementary fosters the love of learning within children!
Flowertown Busy Bees have a mutually supportive community. It's a great place to work and learn.
Flowertown Elementary School is awesome. Teachers, parents, and administrators work together to provide an active and interactive learning environment for our children. My three children continue to thrive in the atmosphere of encouraging challenge that is provided at Flowertown.
Has a great fine arts program!! Offers band, choir, show choir, student council, safety patrol. Has great administraion, teacher, and parental involvement.
My grandchildren attend this school and everytime I visit the school I am always impressed with the time and care the administrators and teachers give to their students. It is an excellent school.
My grand daughters love this school. They started in Oklahoma but moved to Flowertown where they have so much more going on. Thanks for all the help you give to my most loved ones.
I love this school! I am new to the area and this is my daughter's first year here in the developementally delayed pre-schooler class. The security check-in gives me peace about my child's safety. Also, the apperance of the school is adorable. The staff and teachers have been pleasent and helpful.
