The Good: I absolutely love the staff and resources available at FMS. The students are able to take Encore classes and extracurricular activities that most people could only dream of getting to take or participate in. The Bad: Some of my students are very disrespectful and/or defiant.

The staff and administrators truly work hard to put the kids first! They come in early, stay late, and use every available minute of the school day to make sure they are working for the best way to educate each and every student at FMS!

Great school! Multiple communication channels for parents to access school-related information. There is a very large variety of extra-curricula activities to be involved in so there is something for all interests.

Florence Middle School has a place for every student, no matter their interests. We offer multiple opportunities for students to be engaged in academics, extra-curricular activities, and athletics. I don't know of another school with such a diverse population and with so much available for students. The teachers definitely want what is best for the students.

Students need more exposure to how to act respectfully towards others and employees. Many students lack this skill.

All of the faculty push to meet students' needs with remediation and work toward pulling them up to where they should be.

At times, I believe that the students should receive more homework so they are properly prepped for the high school.

Students lack character education lessons and the bullying program has dwendled over the last few years.

The faculty at FMS is wonderful. Teachers go above and beyond to help students realize their potential and take charge of their own learning to show them the paths to success.

The staff at Florence Middle are kind and caring. The school is dated, however the education program is wonderfully staffed with caring faculty and staff.
