    "-As a parent and teacher (10+ yrs), I found Flippen to been a HUGE disappointment. On my first visit to my son s class, I was stopped by the principal (Dr. Obenauf) & told that I must have administrative approval PRIOR. Also,I was told that I would need to be fingerprinted for observations (beyond 20mins.) and for volunteering. I was told this even though the classroom teacher never mentioned it; the bookkeeper told me that she had Never seen that form before , and no one asked for the form or my name upon signing in for the observation. -I had to go to the Henry County JAIL HOUSE to get these prints. I found all of it to be an unnecessary ordeal for me as a parent & stakeholder of the community. I have taught in two (2) GA school systems, was a long term sub in another, and my oldest son has attended 2 H.C.schools and I have NEVER heard of such policies! The principal told me that in the past Flippen has had A LOT of threats and Lockdown situations! This is why she required it.The environment is very unwelcoming to parents. Their letters are even hostile! -I would Not recommend this school to ANYONE! Move further in Henry county."

    "Love this school, the administration and the teachers are amazing!! I have two boys currently enrolled and one more that will be there in a couple of years. They have wonderful counselors that promote a happy encouraging environment and teachers who work very hard to educate and challenge the children."

    "I have sent my children to at least three private schools, all of which I can call great school. Coming to Flippen this year is the only time I can feel that my daughters feel challenged. I have children in 2nd and 3rd grade and I am so pleased with the quality of education offered to my kids at Flippen. What surprised me the most is that the kids are very disciplined. The kids in this school are very well behaved as they are encouraged to be. The staffs are highly diligent and supportive. They update me on my children's progress by setting up a conference with me without having to ask. Flippen is a very well organize school above everything. I am very impressed, coming from private schools."

    "Flippen is an Awesome school!! I have a 3rd grader that has attended all three years and I can't say enough great things about them! My child was developmentally delayed when he started kindergarten. All of his teachers have gone well above their call of duty to get him where he needed to be. This year he is excelling in all areas. Flippen administrators are phenomenal. I feel like Flippen staff are part of my family and I feel so blessed to have them part of our "family". They work hard to make sure ever child is receiving what they need. Thanks Flippen!"
