Open Quote The staff at Flowers High School need to be informed that mutual respect and the ability to communicate effectively are key to success in every aspect of life.

Read about my horrifying experience at the Soul Train to Motown event on Fox 5's Morning News Facebook page. Close Quote

Open Quote The students are out of control. I was there recently and kids were cutting class walking the halls without any concern for being caught. I was taking my son home early and he, myself, and my adult daughter were walking to his class to get something he left behind, the teacher never flinched. I took it upon myself to let him know who I was and what we were doing. Even though they have a uniform policy, girls wear short skirts, super tight pants as well as tight and/or short tops that barely meet the waist of their skirt or pants. A front office worker who was not small had on very tight jeans and very, very high heeled patent leather pumps. Another worker in the guidance office had on a top that revealed cleavage. Excuse me, is this a club or a High School? Upon leaving this day I went to the office to complain and ask why were there students walking around the building and not in class. As a result of my complaint the worker that I spoke to called something in on the 2 way radio. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
