Our first year here under Mrs Wellons had me yearning for a new school even though we had fantastic teachers. After living in other cities, it's disappointing to learn this school lags behind others in Knox county in technology, there is no designated science lab (county wide issue) and no foreign language is taught or offered to any child. The school is full of bright children, supportive parents and dedicated teachers. When Mr. Mosley arrived, we breathed easier with his vision and early changes. Fundraising has to be done because Knox county does not give this school one dime more because they expect parents to give to the school. Not the schools fault. Even though it is big, they are organized, the related arts do programs, field days, projects, etc and the teachers create the atmosphere for excellent learning. The librarian is amazing! She is brilliant.

First year at this school. 2016/2017. First ever rating a school. Crowded or I feel it is considering where we came from in Florida. Over 20 students per class. Only time I get any communication from my son's 3rd grade teacher is if I initiate it. Because of the classes being overcrowded if your child needs extra attention/help they definitely will not get it and if you need a conference you are going to have to be the one the one to ask for it and be sure to keep up on the grade portal because you will not know anything about grades. Maybe it is just the teacher he got this year but had to get a tutor for outside help. So far I am not impressed.

My son was called by racist slur and forced to give up his seat on the school bus. I report the incidents to the school immediately. NO response at all!The school ignores bullying. They don't care about the kids.

ALL they care about is the TCAP score and fundraising. That is it. They don't care about the student, they don't care about the teachers etc. Most of the teachers are very nice.

I don't know what the parents below are talking about! We just moved here this school year and my son is thriving here...He has met lots of new friends and has an awesome teacher. He said it is easy to make friends here being the new guy. He says--FIS has nice teachers and good, challenging work...He also said the no bullying policy is always emphasized and he has seen NO bullying problems. He also said the principal is very involved. Let's see...the same parent has two children that are being "bullied" at this school....hmmmm. Sounds strange to me...Kids are kids wherever you go...public or private schools...now and when I went to school...I DO NOT believe the principal or teachers at this school would take bullying lightly...My son loves this school and the teachers and staff are wonderful...Kids need to learn how to handle "bullying...which is a word too widely used" and parents can't rely on the schools to solve all their problems if they have a kid who stands out for whatever reason...Kids will be kids...So please don't listen to this negative ranting...This is a great school.
