Flowing Wells Unified School District Reviews

I like how involved teachers are with students. I would like more opportunities for success. For example most schools around us make our school look bad. Most parents despise FWHS because of how close we are to Amphi High school. They associate our schools to have the same behavioural patterns and success rates. However, we are truly nothing short of the A+ school our teachers and parents know.

I am grateful that my kids were accepted through open enrollment into a school that is so heavily focused on the overall well-being of kids. FWHS pushes kids to succeed academically, but it also fosters independence, resiliency, and love for learning. My kids are life-long learners because FW showed them how to enjoy learning, to enjoy people, and to mix joy into strenuous work.
I absolutely love Flowing Wells. In certain ways I think they focus too much on the arts but it is good for students to have classes they enjoy. I know that when I was going there I was more of academic based student. But I do not have anything to complain about. They offer so many advanced placement course to help challenge student and help get them ahead. I felt very safe when attending this school. I believe all the teachers want to be there and help the students pass. The environment is amazing. It is rated an A plus school so many year in a row and you can tell. They focused on their students, not only making sure they are learning what they need to but making sure they are enjoying their lives as students.
