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.
