    "We moved to this district from a small, poor, rural school district in Michigan that only has a Greatschools rating of "5." Let me tell you, I would choose that district over FHC every day of the week and twice on Sunday. The only positives for FHC are that there is no violence, and the teachers actually teach, but as for any "best in the area" ratings, FHC isn't that good...other districts are worse. The principal is unresponsive and has a "well, Stowers is up the road if you don't like us" attitude. The policies of the district are ridiculous -- uniforms for a public school? They do have a waiver to opt out of uniforms, which we signed for my oldest daughter...after the principal lectured us on how we were bad parents for doing it. My youngest girl is super-smart, but a bit ADD, and they treat her like she's mentally challenged, send her to the counselor's office to play for the day, and are mean to her on the school bus. I hate watching her hang her head and physically shrink as she approaches the bus. If you are a conformist suburbanite, with "yes ma'am, no ma'am" kids, you will love FHC. If you think for yourself and teach your kids to do the same, well, good luck."

    "Both of my kids are thriving at this school. Great memories of their former teachers each time they progress to the next grade. Wonderful environment, many opportunities to get involved, not overwhealmed with fundraising . . . all is good. Teachers are first-rate and principal seems around all the time to me. Seems to know most kids by name and considering there are 1000 kids . . . that's something."

    "I AGREE WIYH THE MAJORITY NEGATIVE FEEDBACK, THIS SCHOOL JUST CARE ABOUT GIFTED KIDS, FEW TEACHERS CARE ABOUT THE STUDENTS GRADES, OF COURSE , THOSE ARE NOT THEIR KIDS. I HAVE 2 KIDS , ONE WAS A BRILLANT STUDENT WITHOUT NEEDING ANY HELP FROM THEM, MY YOUNGEST ONE, STRUGGLING SINCE K, WE HAVE TO PAID PRIVATE TUTTORING SINCE THEN, UNBELIEVEBLE...TO GET HER TO PASS HER GRADES. EVEN , DOING THAT, WE ARE STILL HAVING HARD TIME W HER GRADES. .AT HOME WE NEVER KNOW WICH TEST OR HOME WORK ARE DUE NEXT DAY MOST OF THE TIME. WE HAVE TO TAKE HER WORD FOR IT. THIS YEAR SO FAR , THE COMMUNICATION TEACHER -PARENT- PRINCIPAL IS THE WORST EVER. JUST WAITING FOR WINTER BREAK TO MOVE MY CHILD TO ANOTHER SCHOOL."

    "This school is horrible all around. My child had 1 good teacher. It was his 3rd grade teacher. They cater to the "gifted" children..not to children that have a difficult time learning. They do not care and why should they. They get paid whether your child learns or not. Children with learning disabilities are sort of pushed under the rug. If your child can learn with little guidance, they will do fine at this school. Good luck getting in touch with the principle."

    "I have enjoyed most of my experience with this school. My oldest daughter came here in first grade and couldn't read at all. By the time first grade was over, however, she was up to level and has continued to improve in her reading. My kids also really enjoy art and music. My experience with the teachers has been very positive. My kids have had hard-working, caring teachers each year so far. My only negatives would be the fundraisers, which I feel are pushed just a little too hard, and being nickeled and dimed to death. As for Ms. Bush, I really like her. Once when my daughter missed the bus, she drove her home because I didn't have a car to go get her with. I'm sure she has her shortcomings, but she does seem to care about the students; and that goes a long way in my book."
