5.0 Stars   06/20/12
I worked at the Flushing School for 3 years. The staff is dedicated and creative. There is a supportive environment for the students to grow and learn. The staff is very much like a family. The professional development for teachers is top notch. I left the school because the commute to work was taking a toll on me. The Shield is a great place for students.
