I give this school, and the entire district, zero stars. As someone with extensive experience with this district, both as an employee and a parent, I can rightfully say that the leadership is the poorest it has ever been. Not to mention that almost every administrator is of entirely of one race, never hiding the fact that they favor students and parents of their same race. In the last four to five years, several highly qualified, motivated, and experienced teachers and staff members left the district because they were often told to keep their opinions and ideas to themselves. Furthermore, any teacher who tries to implement change based on new knowledge acquired in a master's or doctoral program is quickly run out of the district. Once considered a model school by the community, local university, and junior college FBISD has now become the example of what poor leadership can do to a once thriving district. If you have a choice, do not enroll your kids in this district, you will be very disappointed.
FBHS teachers, staff and administrators have high expectations for students and help them reach their goals. The rigorous courses and excellent teachers put students on the road to college and career success.
I am a Flour Bluff graduate who moved away to Dallas, and moved back to Corpus Christi so my daughter could attend FB in 5th grade. What a difference from her past schools! They always have something going on to motivate the kids. There is such community spirit. And my daughter is really absorbing what she learns! I gave FB 5 stars! The administrative and teachers have always been friendly and helpful, her teachers keep in contact with both praises and her weaknesses, there is tons of extracurricular activities... As of yet I have nothing negative to say about the school as a past student and the parent of a student now!
The only thing I dislike about the school is their problem with keeping attendance. I don't know how many times my child was counted absence when she was really there and the teacher later admitted to their mistake. Yet they turn around and make the same mistakes again and again.
Flour Bluff High School provides a safe, secure environment, where my student can learn from excellent teachers. My son was a new student to the school district last year, but he was never treated like a new student. Flour Bluff High School has a fair amount of student turnover because it includes an army depot and naval base. Perhaps because of this, the staff and students are always very welcoming to new students. I am also very impressed with the teaching staff, who are extremely competent in teaching their subject areas. My son's teachers are always doing their very best to prepare him for college.
I am a graduate of Flour Bluff, as are both of my sisters (one who attended K-12). My son is a freshman now & has been there since kinder. If you are going to live in South Texas, this is ultimately the best school district around. It has always been academicly oriented and has great school/community spirit. Flour Bluff has the feel of a small town, while still being in the city. The academic teams are always high ranking as are many of the athletic teams. The NJROTC has been the National Champions for over 10 years! Again, I wouldn't send my children anywhere else. Go Hornets!!!
Best school in South Texas. We moved so my kids could go to FB. Best NJROTC in the US 5 years in a row. Hard but fair.
This campus did NOT serve my child well. The campus administration caters to the wealthy parents. The rest of the parental and student needs are not met. There is no parent involveemtn because parents are not welcomed. I regret ever allowing my child to attend this school.
I think flour bluff school gives 100% to the kids , this is the first school my son has stayed in and he has a B ave over all and I am happy with the school
Wow. Lets see here, Flour Bluff. It is an EXCELLENT school. I will be attending High School this year in California, but dearly miss Flour Bluff. Flour Bluff is a community oriented school and the teachers and staff do an EXCELLENT job. The extra activities are of those that I absolutely loved. The kids are nice. Not judgemental and everyone seems to get a long just fine with everyone else. I can DEFINATLY say that FB is one of the BEST schools in the district. Not just because I attended it but just because the principles and morals they put into the teens minds everyday. They help when some of the teens there thought no one else could. And academically they are truly awesome. Our athletics climbs very high too. Were very well devoted to it. I just plain out love it.
As a past graduate and a parent of 3 children in Flour Bluff, I would not recommend any other school than Flour Bluff. Awesome curriculum and wonderful extracurricular activities!
This school offers a vast range of classes, and it has a student body that is diverse and interesting
Flour Bluff is one of the best schools academically in the area. There are also many extracurricular activities available for all kinds of interests.
Our daughter had a good experience at FB. She entered in the 11th grade after attending a private school. She was able to become involved in sports and choir. She had very good teachers in her AP classes.
I see that the parents at this school are not that involved with the student activities.
Excellent programs, very good sports teams, extreemly hight level of parent involment.
This school has had the best education staff that my 3 childeren have gone too. My first 2 childeren graduated from this school and both got accepted to a&m college station, and my last is the 10th grade. If there was any school in Corpus that you would want to send your child to it should be Flour Bluff.
This school is very helpful if you want to learn how to take a test but besides that they only teach you how to take test they need to tell their teachers to spread out there teachers curriculum. The front office is excellent. Nice principals there. Counselors aren't all that helpful they rarely helped in anything that was asked.
