The counselors in general. They have really worked with our family to address unforseen issues and help our child get through some difficult struggles.

For reasons previously stated. Mainly, they are engaged and seem to care for the well-being of the students while developing life skills for the students.

Amount of homework: Too much

This is an area that is discussed frequently. I think in general, all high schools forget that there needs to be a life - school - work balance and 2 hours of homework every night is an unreasonable load. Some teachers are good at recognizing this, but others think their class is the only that is important and don't recognize that if they give an hour of homework without consideration that other classes may do the same.

Students are held accountable for not doing assigned work but are given assistance with developing skills to address challenges. Not all students are A students, but help is available for the asking.

The counselors and many teachers have a real concern for the well-being of their students and show a mutual level of respect.

As previously stated in my explanation of the Circle of Friends group. They have great programs to be inclusive for developmentally challenged and other special needs students and encourage interaction between those groups of students and the regular student body.

The school leaders and teachers enforce academic honesty and deal with issues when they come up. They also do not tolerate bullying when they are made aware of issues. There are so many students that step in to assist other students as well. They have a great program called the Circle of Friends where students can mentor and buddy up with special needs and developmentally challenged students. No school is perfect, but Flower Mound High School does a great job at trying to instill integrity and being good citizens.

Both of my children graduated from Flower Mound High School. 1 required special accommodation for testing, etc. and the school was very receptive and accommodating. The counselors have always been very engaged and just like anything in life there are a few teachers that aren't as engaged or caring as some, but by far most employees are excellent at what they do. A few 1 star comments have to do with 1 incident at a basketball game that does not reflect the school, the students or the teachers at the school and was dealt with appropriately. There are lots of extra-curricular activities for all interests, an amazing 50+ national merit scholars last year and a 90%+ college-bound rate after graduation.

Disappointed by the actions of those students at the basketball game and disappointed by the lack of action taken after. These events stunt progress, it's 2015

Terribly unhappy with this school. As others have mentioned, it's a great school if your child is a brainiac, but forget it if your child is just average or below average. There simply is NO help for the kids who struggle academically. Someone posted that they offer credit recovery for kids who fail--which is nice. But how about offering help for kids BEFORE they fail? Sure, they offer tutoring after school, but how about DURING school? Resources only appear if you have the potential to be a National Merit Scholar--like special classes to help you score even higher SATs. BUT if you struggle with chemistry? Well, too bad. Fail. Take it again. Good luck. Many of the teachers are fine and do care. But the counselors are overworked and unhelpful. Even just a little guidance from the counselors regarding the best classes to take would help struggling students find some success. No child left behind? Yeah, right. We moved to Flower Mound because of the schools. Worst mistake ever. Do your child a favor and just go somewhere, anywhere else.
