We moved into the Cajon Valley District 3 yrs. ago. When our children first started attending the school in 2008 we were so happy. They came from a school that was a PI (program improvement) school and were very excited to be involved in the performing arts program (F.A.M.E.) little to learn that u needed to try out to be a part of any performances. The following year it became school wide. It was at this time that we noticed academics were being put on the back burner & arts were taking their place. Half way through my 5th graders year her teacher had to leave for 6 months & was replaced by a sub who was completely oblivious to anything. She wasn't even correcting any of the math homework, just stamping with "woo hoo's" and "hooray's", yet all the work was wrong! This school year (2010-2011) has been the worst by far. The main focus for most of the year for 6th grade has been on "The Jungle Story" production. I will say that it was a wonderful show & the students did excellent but again academics & grades were put on the back burner. Homework was missplaced & not recorded in the teachers book. She told my daughter she was going to give her a zero for the assignment. I sit with my daughter every night, sometimes for 6 hrs, & do her homework with her. When i went to speak with the teacher & show her the work we had done she brushed me off saying "Ok i will give her credit" & walked away! Didn't bother to look at it! When i spoke to the principle of this she told me "The teacher is really stressed & busy with the play" & that "We needed to set up a meeting after the play was done". Its been done for almost a month & still nothing. I'm very scared for my daughter to enter 7th grade in the fall because she hasn't received the best education possible, especially in math! This teacher just does not care! I'm highly disappointed & frankly dumbfounded by the lack of attention my child has received this school year! There is an extreme amount of favoritism going on (students who's parents are part of P.T.A). Not everyone has time for that & unfortunately the students are paying for it!

This is a nice community school with excellent teachers - preschool through 6th grade. Teachers are very dedicated and the community does not have any gang activities. An excellent caring school atmosphere for learning. The school has a hands on caring principal who has personal involvement with parents, staff and children. At the time of this posting, Spring 2008, this is a school that can provide a great experience for young children and their families. It has ethnic diversity with quality families.

I have children who have attended this school since K. My one child has always loved school until recently. Bullying by certain Parents and certain Teachers (not to mention favoritism) has caused my child to have such anxiety that it was impossible to keep my children there. I blame the parents and certain teachers to allow this to happen. Furthermore, I have enough proof and witnesses to sue the school and the parents who behaved smaller than children. Children have RIGHTS! and this school did nothing about my situation. It was downright illegal for this parent and Parents to do what they have done. When Dr. Dominico was principal, he would not tolerate any of it. He was a good caring principal who had the children's best interest at heart!! And he was not some Jealous female as some of these woman are. The undue stress (which was uncalled for) that I have had to encounter by these wanna be preppy parents, is ridiculous! This parent thinks they run the class and let there own children get away with everything! Trouble makers!!! I have seen children cry because of music taken away from them during rehearsals, as there was no fowl language or inappropriateness at all. the child cried and had to do a routine with no music. There was nothing inappropriate about the song. Rap, hip hop music etc.. is far worse music to listen too and they let other children use it. Ugly things go on by the duties at the playground. The duties are Awful! as there own children do no wrong,??? (sure) Oh, please.!! Duties single out and pick on other children over and over again creating segregation with the kids as there own kids get away with everything. It is called nepotism, (favoritism.). Not to mention the fact that these kids who are line leaders are bullies. To have Kids in charge of other kids is wrong!!! It creates bullies. As this is exactly what these so called great children are, BULLIES!!! I myself and a few of us parents are thinking of taking this to the News. I never in my entire life have heard of such nonsense. I have not mentioned everything, but I will tell you if I did your hair would curl!!!!!! This is a public School!! Not a private school. It is really sad that this once, Good school has become like this. It is so wrong. These parents do not mind their business and make sure that they get there own way because of the teachers who favor them. My child (who happens to be very beautiful) and other children have been harassed singled out ridiculed by parents, teachers over and over again. the children act more mature that the adults!! Leave the kids alone, especially mine!! During all of this, the current principal did absolutely nothing and in fact this principal favored the wanna be parents who think they are great!!! Wake up call to all of you!! These people at this school are only out for themselves and do things that are illegal!!. What a shame, and shame on you!!Please shop around, look for another school if you are looking, this Flying Hills elementary in El Cajon is terrible!! Bottom line is these parents are so insecure and feel threatened if you or your child are attractive. It is really sad. I am so glad my children are not here anymore!! Shop around parents. Too many jealous females.
