Flour Bluff Independent School District was established in 1937. The district encompasses a 156 square mile area (100 square miles of water and 56 square miles of land). The Flour Bluff/Padre Island/NAS community enjoys the advantage of being a part of the metropolitan Corpus Christi (est. pop. 320,434) with all its cultural, economic, and educational benefits. Nevertheless, the community is proud to maintain a separate independent school district emphasizing high standards and local control.
The Intermediate has a block schedule that consists of Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Physical Education/Fine Arts Elective. The staff at the Intermediate encourages parents to have their children read to them at least 15 minutes a day. All students receive instruction in Physical Education and Fine Arts. Fifth grade Fine Arts consists of Kaleidoscope I, while sixth grade Fine Arts consists of a choice of electives – Band, Kaleidoscope II, Choir, Spanish Cultural Arts and Oceans. All of the Fine Arts programs are one semester in length except for Band, Kaleidoscope II and Choir, which are each a one-year commitment.
Student progress reports are given to all students every three weeks. They are to be handed to the students no later than the Wednesday of the fourth week of the six weeks, unless otherwise notified. A minimum of twelve numeric grades will be taken in ELA, Science, Math, and Social Studies every six-week grading period consisting of daily assignments, projects, quizzes, tests, etc. Alternative assignments are used at the teacher’s discretion based on a student’s needs. Report cards are given to students during the week following the end of the six weeks (with the exception of the last six weeks), unless otherwise notified. Parents are also encouraged to sign into Family Access as as way to stay-up-to-date on student grades and other information.
