I could choose to teach at any school, but I have loved teaching at Fleming for the past 15 years. Reading these negative reviews breaks my heart. I live in Torrance, so my own kids go to Torrance schools, but I am always amazed by the fantastic teachers, programs, facilities, and technology we have at Fleming that I haven't seen at my own children's schools. For instance, we are continuously working to find more ways to make our school a better experience for students. Under the leadership of our administration, we take time to plan, reflect, and learn new strategies on a regular basis. Teachers each belong to a committee to actively plan and implement programs for our staff and students such as: awards and incentives, technology integration, and 8th grade activities. The only reason I didn't give our school 5 stars is because dealing with our negative reputation and students who perpetuate that reputation can be exhausting. I have had the privilege of having wonderful, caring, creative, hardworking, and intelligent students. Of course not every student is an ideal student, but I would find that at any school. If you could see our Sir Alex Awards, where the administration literally rolls out a red carpet and hands out golden statuettes to Principal's Honor Roll students, I truly believe you would be impressed. We also have an impressive Magnet program, Mesa Club, Robotics, Journalism, Horticulture, CJSF Honor Club, Drumline, after school sports, 5K Club, state-of-the-art fitness equipment, and a dance team that has won NATIONAL competitions. Trust me, we are so much more awesome than these terrible reviews from disgruntled former students and parents of students who had a bad experience.
This is the worst school I have ever experienced in my life and I am 55 yrs. old. Teacher's, counselors, principal, no one is concerned or cares. Horrible, my daughter was bullied big time, There were students who were gang members. I moved her asap to a charter school and that was the best decision I ever made. She went onto a academic preparatory high school she is now graduating and have been accepted to over 10 Colleges. That was 7 years ago. today the comments are still the same, sad. I understand they have a lot to deal with but they are missing out on a lot of talented and bright kids who can make something of their life, if only this school can recognize that.
Don't send your child to this school. Worst mistake I ever made in my life. There are very little teachers that are caring and helpful. The counselor, has no input on issues you address and good luck getting a hold of the principle. The vice principal mistakes kids for others and provides incorrect. If you your child is having issues with his/her academics you wont be advised.
Actually I don't know why people give this school so much trash. Maybe because it's an lausd school and lausd isn't as good as Torrance? But still people say oh yeah there's like fights every week or so but I haven"t seen or heard of one for more than a semister and that's actually good. Also the counselors, teachers, and even all of the students are friendly. People say teachers don't care there but the teachers are the coolest people I actually feel like I'm friends with them and not just another person off the street. The counselors are cool too they will talk with you about anything you want and seem to care about all of your worries and needs. Finally the students there are friendly I know I'm young going to the school as a seventh grader but i have not met a single kid that I couldn't become friends with. Freak even the eighth graders love me they take me under their wing and show me the ropes of the school. And the only problems with the kids is the laziness I can tell you any class can be passed with effort. But those kids are so lazy tea don't even pass the simplest class p.e. Because they don't want to run so ignore what the page says it's a good school.
