I'm a student here at Fort Payne Middle School. I would like to make some major points about how this school runs. It's terrible here. The students are very immature, which yes, I know you can't change a student's attitude, but you can at least tell them not to make inappropriate sounds in class. The teachers don't ever take control over their class. Students fool around while the teacher is teaching and nothing is done about it. Harassment and bullying are big ones, and nothing is never done about it. Dress code is constantly picked on to students, even by the littlest code broke, students are to go home and change. The school also runs on popularity instead of intelligence. Student's parents who are rich, or pay the school get better treatments than the ones who don't. The school system also runs on who you know as well. Last year they gave the students iPads, which was a huge mistake. They never use them for educational purposes it seems. All the students do is play games in class and never pay attention to the teacher. They also do inappropriate things on their iPads as well. Not one of the best schools in the world.

Fort Payne Middle School offers an outstanding faculty and staff. The students of FPMS gain a wealth of knowledge, but a strong foundation of personal character and leadership qualities are obtained. There are a wide range of extra curricular activities offered.
