I really like FLICS, I must warn you this school came be a little over the top at times. There are so many student organizations, committees etc. that this elementary school could rival any high school. Plan on volunteering, chaperoning, etc., its a very hands-on environment, but aren't our kids worth it? :)

Terrible. I did not expect the caliber of students at this school to be no different than the typical low performing school in Detroit. I like that the language teachers teach a language that is their first language. It is embarrassing that they are subjected to the social deficiencies rampant in the community that the school draws students from. Too many students at this school carry the same entitled attitude of their parents. The parents have not taught their children there are consequences for your actions. The children grow up thinking they can do what they want and talk to teachers any kind of way and not suffer the consequences because their parents uphold the child’s bad behavior.

From 1 to 5 I would rate the school a 2 because I like the languages

I gave DPS a try last year for my daughter who was entering Kindergarten. I will say, I am extremely happy with that decision. My daughter is no longer bored in class because she isn't being challenged. (She has been taught Montessori since the age of 1 and traditional teaching didn't challenge her) She is now in 1st grade Chinese, she already has homework and she is excited to come home and complete it. She even wakes up every morning looking forward to school. The communication from the school is phenomenal, you get a phone call or text and can also log in to see your child's reports. I also love the fact the school teaches the children to be independent early on. I know DPS has been going through a lot for some time now but I would recommend FLICS to any parent.

This is an amazing school with great teachers. My daughter has been at this school since kindergarten. We love the curriculum and Japanese language. The diversity that FLiCS provides is exceptional. The principal and asst are attentive to the children's needs. Come join our family because we will welcome you with a warm heart!!!
