The teachers are a way to strict (you talk in the hall: get put in detention) .
- Posted by Student/Alumni - Anakin Toliver

I am seeing excessive over scrutinizing of every move every child makes, to the point that the children who are students at FIS are not allowed to be children, all kinds of punishments for minor infractions and too many rules have become the norm in the last year and is excalating to even more rules and increased severity of punishments for children. What they can and can not say, whether they can be allowed to express their feelings is suppressed. Children are going to make mistakes, they may or may not be made fun of by their classmates, and their reaction to what they feel when that happens can lead to saying or doing things that are inapropriate but they are no where near criminal. New rules coming down from the board of education now force teachers and principals to spend more of their time disciplining kids than teaching. I remember thinking what a great school it was last year and the year before. But now I fear for the effect the current changes will do to the children's desire to learn and to like being in school. My child used to love going to school and now would like not to be there. The teachers are good teachers, but they have been turned into overseers just looking to find fault.
