Dr. Phinnize J. Fisher Middle Ratings & Reviews

I would say that this school has been very helpful in teaching the students and we couldn’t succeed without this very helpful school.

Excellent. It has been the perfect match for my daughter who is flourishing there. She loves the block schedules. It helps with organization and decreases transitions between classes. She learns in a respectful environment and has blossomed. They do need to increase course sections for the electives. Hopefully this will happen as the school ages. Nevertheless my daughter has taken electives taught in a captivating manner.

Our experience has been very poor. The block schedule and PBL plans are ineffective at this level and the teachers have been overall sub par and ill mannered. My son is having to repeat a high school class because his average (A) does not in ANY way reflect his actual ability and what I know will be demanded of him in high school. He is not prepared for high school in many ways. He has not been taught time management or study skills. He has not learned to self advocate; he has not been offered the rigor that is necessary for second level high school courses. The teachers do not follow uniform classroom practices making it difficult for parents to try ot help their students learn these skills at home (and they certainly are not calling/emailing back). My kid's weakest teachers were in math and English. His two most important subjects. Leaving him at Fisher for three years was a mistake on our parts that will effect his high school experience greatly. Hopefully he can recover without as much struggle as SOOO many other former Fisher parents tell me their kids have suffered by being ill prepared. The school looks cutting edge, and it has great toys (if your kid can get into the classes), but do not let looks deceive you. A good old fashioned classroom education will be a stronger foundation for your student. Do not make our mistake.

Fisher is not what I expected it to be. Very hard to get into all the cool robotics, coding, video game classes. Many kids get stuck in a music class which makes it difficult for the kids who really want to learn an instrument. Big disparity in student abilities - both ends of the spectrum.

"Like any Middle School their are good points as well as bad points. Fisher's fit for your child is going to be highly dependent on your child's personality type. To be successful with the A/B rotating block schedule, your student needs to be structured and scheduled - an engineering mindset. When we decided to go to Fisher one of the very things that attracted us was the ability to have more related art classes due to the Block schedule. What I didn't take into account is how much having 8 classes will increase the overall work load for my student. It is not unusual at all to have 5+ hours of homework a night. Another big issue is the lack of consistency in how teachers make assignments. There is not one place to go to find all the assignments, and trust me, this becomes quite an issue when a student has a class on Thursday but doesn't have it again until the next Monday. Being able to find the assignments is crucial. Some teachers use Google Calendar, but many don't. Some use Google Classroom, but those who do, often don't include a due date. Some will just right it on their board in the classroom. Not so good if your student forgets to write it down. In the end it is the mass inconsistency that leads to student and parent stress and issues with knowing what assignments are due when. A third issue for us has been the 1.5 hour classroom time. There is a lot of down time in the classroom. This leads to mass emailing between students and generally wasted time. This is a great concept, but for a Middle Schooler it is a bit premature. Most of them have not developed their study skills enough to manage the amount of non-teaching time with which they are responsible in a given class period. The fourth issue has been rather rampant bulling. This is something that any school faces, but not something that the administration has adequately combated when known issues have arisen. I have known several children who have been verbally and physically abused. Some have left the school at this point. In one child's instance, they reached out to the school and filed a Bully report. Not one official from the school contacted the student or the parent. In summation, I'll quote our Elementary School Guidance counselor - ""It is like they are throwing Middle Schoolers into College and expecting them to survive."""
