Community Rating & Reviews

    It is not common for a student to come on campus of the zoned school that he/she does not attend to do activates. However it is their option and right. The administration should at least be knowledgeable & willing to have a pleasant discussion of how it could/or could not work in a given situation. Office staff did try to help and "redeem" the unpleasant operator. More value needs to be put on the first impression made to the community for the school. The grounds are well kept students are orderly and the security staff are friendly and accommodating. I will give the school three stars because seeing beyond the first impression there seems to be a lot going on for the students. My rating is just on inquiry/customer service and office experience. It has nothing to do with the quality of education students and teachers.

    This school is an incredible abomination. I am a junior currently attending Flanagan High School. There are shoe marks on the walls animal poop on the stairs most of the bathrooms usually lack of soap the bathrooms stink and have writtings all over them and the floors are entirely covered in old black dried up gum. Also the guidence couselors and other staff members of a higher position usually never make time to listen to the students' complaints or issues. Despite the dilemmas just mentioned however some teachers do a well job teaching and know exactly what they are doing as i have improved my writing skills and many students in Flanagan are very friendly.

    Yes I agree the district needs to replace a lot of the teachers in Flanagan. They do have a lot of problems and they do take it out on the kids. I'm sure that there are kids more difficult than other that is known in every school but there are good kids that are truly responsible and successful. My daughter last year experienced in home room a teacher that literally was a psycho Ms. McAlpine. Why is she still dealing with teenagers if she can't stand them.

    I hope my child is keeping up with her grades and extra activities.My child does not belong in this school. Ive been to the mall near by when i lived in Florida without Mr.Oakley .Her present address is 10370sw 24th court in Miramar. I can be reached @ email or cell number three four seven nine two eight six eight one five.

    Ok well it's a good school but some of the teachers have alot of personal problems and take it out on the kids. A good example would Ms.cummings. With her sarcastic attitude and her smart remarks. Many students have set up meeting with her and their parents and you would think during a meeting a teacher would greet you and your parents and say hello. But apparently this lady has no clue what proper manners are. she will give you and your parents no greeting and she will act like she has no time to listen to your problem. And lets not with how rude she is to her students. Sadly there are many teachers and staff members that treat parents and students in such a way. Other than that the school is alright

    I really like Flanagan but the only problem is that some students are very rude with the teachers ad misbehave a lot but you don't expect a school to have all the students very disciplined. but still the teachers are amazing they are so helpful. love you Flanagan. )

    Flanagan High is a horrible school. The faculty and teachers there are mostly mental. This school gives a bad name to Public Schools. I've tried twice to put my daughter in a different high school but because of space I was rejected. If there's anyway your child can go to another school or private it would definately be best. In this school you hear more the teachers having a personal issue with the student than them actually being a teacher. Definately unsatisfactory as a shool.

    Whomever name is Ms DIXON who works in the office and answer the phone is RUDE DISRESPECTUL AND A DISGRACE! I don't understand how she could represent a school or even be employed there. As a teacher attendance assistant office assistant whatever it may be you suppose to set an example for the kids who attend Flanagan or any school. As well as respecting others I'm sure there's unemployed teachers out there who would LOVE to take her place and assist in a RESPECTFUL CARING AND KIND MANNER.

    I'm a freshman at Flanagan and I honestly love it. Yes there's rumors about fights teachers not caring staff being rude etc. But how do you know all those things are actually true? Exactly. You don't. Flanagan is an amazing school. The teachers are extremely helpful and they teacher amazingly perfect. They have THE NUMBER ONE COLOR GUARD IN THE WORLD which I am very proud to be apart of. Overall Flanagan is amazing if you're thinking of going there definitely do it. And join their color guard. The more the better. c

    In my opinion this school does not do enough to prepare the students to enter top level colleges. Pembroke Pines is a great place to live yet the school does not reflect the community.

    Some of the teachers are good but with this new principal the school is more of a jail rather than a school. i missed Flanagan in 2009 . School seemed enjoyable back in the day. However im not enjoying my senior year at all /

    The guidance counselors constantly pick and choose who they prefer to call back. They are very rude I called the school asking if any child in Flanagan has received their schedule they said no one but yet my child see students posting their schedules on social networking sites. Lastly there very irresponsible.

    i rate this school a 9/10 .okay yes flanagan has been on the news for fighting but thats water under the bridge the teachers are amazing if you don't understand something they sit you down and make sure by the end of the day you understand it the students are really nice along with the teachers flanagan is a fun enviroment where you can be yourself so if your thinking about coming to this school al the more better for you.

    This is a fairly good school. It has a great staff and quality varied programs. Parent involvement could be improved.

    Overall Flanagan is a good school. I have had two children go through Flanagan and a third still attending.

    I graduated Flanagan in 2006 and I have to say that I would go back and do it again. That school offers everything from extracurriculars to academics. I enjoyed my time there and after speaking with people who went to school either out of state or in Dade County I realized how lucky I was to have attended that school. The teachers were extremely involved and showed concern. The population is very diverse which is another thing I loved about that school. Its the prime example of an All-American high school and I'm proud to have graduated from there. They also have an excellent music program (grammy award winning) excellent sports teams a nationally recognized colorguard and JROTC. I also realized that many people going to college here in NY did not get the same quality of education. Even graduation was a lot more tasteful. Falcon forever

    I'm a freshman at Flanagan and I honestly love it. My teachers are friendly but rule with a firm hand when necessary. The extracurricular activities are fantastic especially marching band (which I am a part of). At first I was scared of going to high school because of all the rumored fights and that the teachers don't care about their students. I have come to find that it is the exact opposite. I enjoy every day at Flanagan. There are a lot of really good kids here and I suggest this school to anyone who is deciding where to send their kids.

    This high school has a great 'overall' program for the students. The majority of the teachers are approachable and very responsive to your parental concerns. Their school website is excellent and provide many helpful links for parents and students alike.
