Fishers junior high is a great school! I'm a 7th grader this year, but on the first day I was confused but all the staff helped me find my way. I was really bad at math the year before but my math teacher helped me get back on track and always made sure I understood everything. I had all C+ last year and now I'm an honor student and a cheerleader at fishers junior high! 7th graders go to camp Tecumseh every year and it was so much fun! I would definitely recommend this school.

Fishers junior high for me was the worst. The teachers can be mean but overall they are still good teachers. My experience was all right, but I wish it could be better. The only outcome of this whole grade I think is probably Mr. Broviak and NJHS. The lunches there are kind of gross. I will find little specks of hair in my food. The choices of meals are kind of disgusting too.

My experience has been good. However, I have had negative interactions with front office staff by them treating me poorly and giving obvious "dirty" looks when I pick up and drop off my kid for an appointment. I am the taxpayer and they needs to remember who provides their salary. If they treat me poorly I understand when my son explains how poorly they treat the kids. The front office staff needs better education on how to communicate. Their professionalism is obviously lacking.

Great school! I feel like my kids are getting a well-rounded education and get to experience a lot with the vast class choices and diversity.

I have a daughter who attended Fishers Junior High and I have a son who is now in 7th grade. Absolutely the best teachers ever. The 7th grade teachers have had a lifelong impact on both my chiildren. I seriously doubt that any teacher before or after will be able to top the quality of care and instruction that they received here. When a child puts in double the effort simply to live up to the standards set by the teacher, parents can step back with a sigh of relief. That is a particularly valuable teacher. The values instilled in 7th grade have stayed with my child in high school. Students are encouraged to think and given global history and perspective. The teachers provide a very inclusive atmosphere where my kids never felt that they belonged to a minority. They were treated like everybody else. My heartfelt thanks to the school and the teachers for the stellar quality of education my children have received.

My oldest child is a 7th grader at Fishers Jr High! He LOVES it and we love it there. I do not go in the school much at the age but I get updates weekly from several of his teachers! They are awesome teachers. When I have had a question for teachers, office staff they respond quickly! Love it there and happy we are at this school and in this district.

OUTSTANDING! Fishers Jr. High as well as all of the HSE schools have been wonderful schools for our children. All of the teachers are held accountable and go up and above the call of teaching. They provide a learning enviornment for which the kids WANT to be in. Especially during a time when kids are changing so much, FJH staff really take the time to get to know, recoganize and appreciate each child for who they are! One of the best decisions we ever made for our family was to move to Fishers, IN!

This is an amazing school! What makes this learning community so special is the outstanding staff. They are truely wonderful people that care about the whole student, no just a test score. Yet, test scores are high and the rigor of the curriculum is world class. I cannot express out much our family respects these teachers and have loved being a part of Fishers Junior High!

Fishers Jr High has been a fantastic transition school for my son. He has been in the HSE school district for all of his education, but I have been incredibly impressed with the staff at FJH. He LOVES his teachers - all of them! He enjoys going to school, is challenged, is involved in after school activities and has had a great experience. It has allowed him a glimpse of what high school will hold - larger school, transitioning between classes, a change of class type at the end of the semester, etc., but has done so in an environment that has allowed him to be comfortable and grow.

Fishers Jr High , is one of the best schools in HSE district . This due to the incredible staff. These teachers and staff members go above and beyond what is asked of them. I would recommend this school to anyone.

This is a fantastic school. Our 7th grader came from Sand Creek Intermediate and did not have a very good experience at that school, but this school was great. The teachers are absolutely fantastic in 7th grade. I'm betting that these might be the best teachers he will have in any of the schools in this district. The only experience with extra curricular activities my son has had is band and he says great things about it. It is a very large school but I don't think the students feel left out or lost in the school. It is a great addition to the many great schools in this district.

The school year is almost over and I am very pleased with this school, the teachers and my son's experience overall experience in the 7th grade. Last week I was able to see first hand how the students and teacher interacted at the 7th grade camp (as a cabin parent). I saw children having fun with their peers, teachers having fun with the students, and high school students mentoring the junior high students. Every child at camp mattered. You only saw smiles, laughter and memories being made. Who cared if it rained or snowed! The kids had fun doing experiments, learning new things, acting silly and just being themselves. I sat back and watched the teachers dancing, doing skits and making each child feel special. It was a wonderful opportunity to see the teachers at work. They aren't just people that send homework home but people that want to inspire my child to learn and to better himself. I feel really blessed that my son was placed in this school with such a great group of teachers. His group happens to be the Globetrotter's. I will be sad when the school year is over. I am thankful to live in such a great area where the teachers and the schools care so much about our children.

I should have listened to my friends who recommended Carmel schools that have a large percentage of minority students. FJH is much less diverse and there is racial bias towards minority students. We are very disappointed.
