FMS is an all around great school. Caring, smart, interested teachers who take initiative and welcome parent suggestions and involvement. Principal is engaged and active with students, teachers, and parents. FMS uses online site TxConnect to post data for parents on student attendance, behavior, and grades. Class size allows students and teachers to interact effectively on a daily basis. Ample opportunities for student extra-cir. activities, including multiple award winning FFA/Ag program. Very glad our son has been able to attend this middle school (beginning 8th grade this year). We highly recommend FMS!

This school is filled with excellent, caring teachers. The classes vary in size from 10 - 24 students. The students are respectful and care for each other. There are many ways to get involved on campus. Students can be in band and play sports. They can participate in all sports. There are also many leadership opportunities for the students.

Quality of programs is poor, availability of extracurricular programs is slim to none. Expectations for this age are too strenuous - the students were allowed to choose their own schedules and were not encouraged to take honors level courses when they scored high on TAKS exams. My child received a commendation on TAKS reading/writing portion, had taken honors English the previous 2 years, and was allowed to take regular English the next year without my knowledge or guidance. When I approached the principal, she simply stated that they encouraged the students to consult with parents, but it was ultimately up to the student. For a 7th or 8th grader? This is preposterous!
