William Fleming High School Reviews

I graduated from William Fleming High School in 2018. Out of everything Fleming has to offer, I would say that its special education program was the school's best asset. The students in the program were treated well by their teachers and were taught everything they need to know in order to navigate through life. However, Fleming had its fair share of problems. The school had a very hostile environment due to frequent fights between students, and bullying was rarely addressed by administration. There were multiple occasions during my time at Fleming where I would be harassed by another student in plain view of a teacher, only for it to be ignored. In a nutshell, William Fleming High School was mediocre at best with strengths that are few and far between.

My experience at William Fleming High School has been a mostly positive experience. I do feel like, however, that the quality of the food could be improved, considering a bug was found in the food on more than one occasion. Also, the people here have poor discipline considering a student got into a fight with a teacher. I think this school needs more space because the chamber choir students, myself included, cannot be in the choir room because orchestra needs it, so we have to be in the auditorium which isn't as orderly. There was also our bus situation at the beginning of the year where more than half the buses were late getting to and from school causing our senior class meeting to get pushed back everyday for almost 2 weeks.
I graduated from William Fleming in 2017 and from what I heard the school has gotten worse. The sports and school spirit was good but some of the teachers doesn’t care about the students and are just there for the check. There are still some teachers that go above and beyond for the students but there is only a few of them that are like this. All schools have there flaws and through the flaws of Fleming, I still enjoyed the school and made some great connections.
