Map of Frick Middle School address.

Frick Middle School was once the school that every Parent wanted their child to be at, Since Mr. Criddle has left the school it has really went down, down, down. That's really sad, because I feel that the students of today are not learning anything, most of them are in school only half day and some cannot come to the school at all only for testing. Mr. Criddle once had his staff on point as well as the students and the parents, it was a family school now it just feels like a building with people in it, I think that the school district such model Frick after Mr. Criddle, meet with him to find out what worked for the students, parents, staff and administration of the school so that the children can return to receiving a better education.

these must be old rating for this school it is nothing like it use to be under Mr. Calvin Criddle, the new principal does not like to meet with parents and there is very little parent involement in this school. The teacher's have changed over the years with new teachers coming in every year they do not stay long. I would rate Frick Middle school at a 2 1/2 star at this point.

My son attended Frick three years ago and that's how I got to know and love the school and staff. He had been in private school until his 8th grade year. He did exceptionally well. My daughter is now in her first year there and has made honor roll every report card period. She loves her teachers and she's learning a lot. Mr. Gourdine is great. He was the vice principal when my son was there. I'm glad to see him take over as principal. He's great and has a good relationship with the kids. He's really concerned about them. I hope that the school stays on track and continues to thrive. I have my nephew looking forward to attending there in the next two years. Go Frick!

I think Frick is getting better and better over the years. With new ways of teaching and setting up classes it's easier for the students to get to know one another.

Frick Middle School is not one of the best schools, I think they could do better. This school could have more after school programs. Also, Frick could check up on their students more often. The discipline level is right there. (But its good.) The students could have more activities also. Otherwise, Frick Middle is a excellent school, but not he best. I also forgot to imply that Frick needs off campus lunch, we'll at least for the students that obey the requirements!

About this school

Frick Middle School is a community school made up of academically and socially minded successful students who thrive. A Frick education encourages students to be creative and confident. We produce independent thinkers and life-long learners that live up to high expectations set by teachers and family. Our API scores since 2005 have grown significantly and we show no signs of stopping. We love to recognize the accomplishments of our Kings and Queens and have rallies at the end of each marking period to celebrate their hard work. Students on honor roll, the most dedicated, the most improved, and students with perfect attendance are all celebrated and recognized in front of their peers, teachers, and school staff. Our school-based health center is operated in partnership with the East Bay Agency for Children, Native American Health and the Alameda County Department of Behavioral Health, and provides physical and behavioral health services to the Frick community along with other health-related services, all free of charge. We offer these services in both English and Spanish. Our Spark apprenticeship program matches middle school students with a mentor in their dream jobs. These experiences help to keep our students college and career focused, and engaged in school. Our afterschool program gives students multiple enrichment activities like sports, art, youth development and media arts in addition to academic support. Above all else, Principal Jerome Gourdine views each student as his own and truly creates a home away from home where every student can feel safe.
