So here’s the thing, I truly believe that fintona is an excellent school and has made my life so much better in so many ways. However, the biggest downside to me is that the school has a habit of focusing all its attention on the “gifted” students and neglect the ones that need help a lot of the time.

I love fintona, it lead me to meet my best friends and it opened up another side of me, they were there for me when I needed them and I love the fact the school,classroom, is quite small which does put a certain limit on activities. I’ve been at this school for four years this being my fourth and I intend to stay, I read many of the comments by past teachers and possibly students and their parents talking about how they were bullied or they didn’t like fintona, our school has a no bullying policy and we have a counsellor so I don’t think the reason for you leaving fintona should be bullying, and if your unable to stand up for yourself that’s really not the fault of the school. and it is true the size of the school may not suit everyone, but a small classroom and year level has its many benefits such as you get to know almost everyone in the school and you develop close friendships with other students, the teachers here are also most of the time quite nice and they help you with your learning. I just want to say I will always cherish the years I spent at fintona because it’s an amazing school

Whatever you do, DO NOT send your child here. This environment only suits certain types of children so please consider whether or not your daughter fits in here before enrolling. Many girls at this school are extremely sheltered and insular about the world around them. In terms of friends, the classes are extremely small so your daughter’s options are very limited. There will be a huge chance that she is forced to be “friends” with people she doesn’t share any common interests in. Don’t get me wrong, Fintona is a great school but only for certain girls. If you fit into that mould, you’ll have an amazing time here, but if not - every moment will be hell.
