Faith Middle School is by far the worst DOD school. My son is in the 6th grade, school year of 2013-2014. My son is a special ed child with an IEP and the teacher involvement is the worst. Academically he is a straight A and B child but its because of all the hard work he does at school and the help he gets at home. I've asked for him to be in a specific classe during school hours and also to get extra help after school. Well, the class still waiting on like extra help in reading. My son is on a waiting list!?!? When I asked for extra help after school, teacher excuse was that the DOD does not have enough funds to educate!?!? Also this school has a serious case of bullying. My son has been bullied mentally and physically since the beginning of the school year and the school does nothing about it. The 1st time my son was attacked a bruise was left on his body from the 1st incident and the child that caused the harm on my son, got away with it. The 2nd time sexual remarks were made to my son and nothing was done about it. Also the PE teacher at one time was the principal of the school but could not handle all the bullying and the principal now can careless as with the superintendent.

this school has too many problems. They always pick on one kid,which means suspension for something that some one else did. Also, one of the vice principals is always threatening kids with getting their family kicked of base. Plus, when there are very serious problems, no one ever does anything. This has been the problemsworst school ever. Luck eighth graders that can go off base.

Academically this school is solid. HOWEVER, the school is lacking on dealing w/bullying. My son attended Faith Middle School for a brief period of 2wks. My son is outgoing & makes friends easily and IS NOT a confrontational child. Faith Middle School is THE ONLY MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR Fort Benning. There was a child at this school that had been picking on/bullying my son since DAY ONE. My son did not say anything to any of the staff at the school because, he did not want to be looked at like a rat & did not want the bullying to get worse. TWO WEEKS INTO SCHOOL MY SON WAS STABBED! THIS HAPPENT AT THE ON POST MIDDLE SCHOOL. NO MP's were called! When we asked what is going to be done about the child, the principal said they could not answer that because of the privacy act. When we went to speak to the superintendent, the issue was blown off as my child being "poked". We had put him on antibiotics for it! They denied the incident happened when a parent called about it. The issue was completely brushed under the carpet. Because the school can not insure the safety of its students, I pulled my son & had to put him in a private school! 3WKS. later, THE SAME CHILD stabbed another student! WHY??

I was attending FMS, all of my middle school years. It was a nice school. The teachers tought well and there were many different activites for young people to do. Most of the students are well behaved and it is a postive place for a child to be. Even though, when i was there they lacked a football team, it was still a nice school to be at.
