Flora High School Reviews

Good. The sports they are really good although one of the team members at the football game on Friday said he wishes that his team would talk and converse about problems to better their game. Another said Flora has the runners and Louisville has the strength so combine the two schools. We can see that Flora has potential but add more potential to the team and you can win. The academic side of things is good! I hear a lot of students with 3.5 GPA or higher! The staff is friendly and they put their all into the kids. The building is ok probably wouldn’t hurt a couple touch ups but looks nice. The new parking lot looks good as well.

FHS is a typical small town high school experience (I assume). Most people are friendly, with the caveat that there are cliques. If you start attending Flora later, it can be difficult to find a group to hang out with. Sports and band are a big deal, and most everyone shows school spirit. The drop out rate is disheartening. Most of the teachers do care about their students, and put in extra effort. There is not a lot of racial diversity, but there is more sexual diversity. Some classes are extremely easy, while others are moderately challenging. I feel that the school is well prepared for an emergency. Parental involvement is semi-strong. If there is an issue, the administration deals with it swiftly. There are several clubs. However, only a select few do actual activities. Of course, everyone's experience is different, and I am grateful for the chance to receive a decent education with minimal drama during these angsty teen years.
The things I like most about Flora High school is the experienced and wisdom filled faculty. The guidance is tremendous. One thing I would like to see change is the which extracurricular activities they support most. Some sports, clubs, etc. are almost forgotten due to another out-shining it.
