Fillmore Middle School has a bullying problem that has not been resolved. Staff didn't believe that the "good students" were part of the problem. No consistency in principals or problem solving. I don't believe that FMS has a math teacher that is effective either. I received phone calls from staff stating that my child was far advanced in a class and received a C in that class. I had to remove my daughter from this school and move her to another district.

Teachers are pretty good overall. The administration is decent but not always strict enough.

Mostly great teachers with only a few bad apples mixed in. Algebra is mandatory for 8th graders, and available for advanced 7th. Short periods (50 minutes) make for lots of class choices, but may get in the way of learning. Discipline is good, but not great. Needs more consistency.

The faculty spends too much time harassing the hard working students instead of focusing on those students who need the extra push. They cater to the Spanish speaking community and fail to make a connection with the English speaking community. Their priorities need to be reassessed.

I have had three children at Fillmore Middle School (steadily since 1997) including one in Special Ed. I am SO IMPRESSED with the quality of the teachers and their dedication to the students. Through my participation I have worked closely with teachers and staff, all of whom are plesant and helpful. I am always reminded of how lucky we are to have a group of people that KNOW our kids and care about them, while educating and challenging them! Mrs. Gradias and Mr. Cleveland are quite a team.
