All the idiots who think the kids in Fairhope are rich snotty people who have no kindness obviously have no observation skills. I see people all the time in little ways being helpful, kind, and altogether just being a good group of kids. I am a former student of Fairhope Middle School and know just how great this school is. All the students, teachers, and staff are amazing people who have helped me to learn a lot. I had an easy time adjusting even at an older age. I can't think of any better school to learn and make friends. You can take my word for it too, sense I have lived in 4 states and went to many other schools in the area. No school is better than Fairhope. - A Former Student.

This school is very good. It is just like a private school. We have recently acquired new admististrative staff. There are many clubs and fun things. I recommend every middle school child to attend this school. The teachers teach very well and are willing to help a child. The punishments are very strict, so I advise your children to not do bad things. The school is very new and modern.The only bad thing i have is the bus' are VERY crowded. A VERY GOOD SCHOOL!!!!!!

Having relocated to the area from out of state and having experienced superb public schools elswhere, the Fairhope public schools are good for the area but not up to par when considering other, better managed public school systems.

The principal is only interested in placating parents, especially those who give money to the school. She is not interested in the children and her focus is only on becoming principal at Fairhope High School.

In my opinion, FMS is a bunch of religous and rich snotty kids. The teachers teach us about christianity and stuff in the bible. I think thats really wrong. My relgious beliefs are FAR from everyone elses. FMS should be an indoor school too. If it has so much good teachers at least this rich town could afford to build a new school instead of using the old high school. When I moved here in the 6th grade I thought I'd never adapt to the people. I didnt make friends until 4th quarter. Please parents, if your child attends fairhope middle school and doesnt like it. Talk to them about going to another school. - Taylor

I am in 8th grade at Fairhope Middle School. I am in Gifted/Talented (G/T) and I am in National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). I love FMS and I really do not want to leave it. My peers are the best and the teachers are amazing. I also wanted to add although G/T is a literature class, we also do tons of math and science in it. All the teachers make sure that everyone understands what they are talking about. Because of the teachers I am a straight A student. So I think overall FMS is the best school in Fairhope and that anyone who attends will have a great time.

I am student who attended Fairhope Middle School in the 2004-2005 school year.FMS has too many students and not enough teachers. Some of the classes are 30+ sized. Also most of the teachers until the 8th grade are very compassionate and intelligent indviduals.However, a few of the 8th grade teachers are extremely unsatisfactory. I was barred from a school event because of the length of my hair and my religous views.If your child attends FMS, please homeschool or let he/she attend an alternate school for the 8th grade.

I also experienced with two teachers their inability to instruct at my childs learning level, when concerns were voiced they were ingnored. The 'gifted' program is nothing to what many would expect or find elsewhere in the US. My child who has 'superior range' in math/science was not able to be challenged as they only offer a Literature class for those in the gifted program. There is definitely room for improvement is many areas. Unfortunately my childs education can't wait for that to happen, we are looking at Private Schools in Mobile, AL.

Making the transition to Fairhope Middle was extremely difficult. They go from having one teacher in elementary school to 3 then 7. The teachers are too involved with 140 plus students to concentrate on helping the ones who need help. Fairhope has too many schools. The teachers are overwhelmed and unfortunately my child is one who is going to be left behind when the Federal Government is mandating No Child Left Behind.

Our daughter entered public school in the 6th grade, all previous grades were at a private Christian school. Her guidance counselor, Brenda Saltz, has been most helpful in helping her make the transition. My daughter just began her 7th grade year and it looks like it's going to be another good one.
