Falmouth Middle School4

Moved 1200 miles two years ago so that our daughter could be educated in one of the best public middle schools in the country. As a math & science prodigy our child has had unique learning needs since age 3. Principal Palfrey was a wonderful administrator. Our daughter's accelerated Math teachers ( Hebert & Bennett) were amazing. Her 7th grade science teacher ( Stuart) was absolutely perfect for our daughter. Her social studies teachers ( Shain & Stein) wonderful. Only complaint is the lack of consistency in accelerated ELA. Our daughter has been embraced by her peers as a nerdy, hyper smart athlete. She has friends from all corners of the school. It's cool to be smart at FMS and everything is done to be sure the smartest students are well challenged and prepared for high school. The Debate program is a gem. The parent community supportive and surprisingly non pretentious considering the wealth in our community. Bring on 8th grade! Our daughter can not wait.
falmouth high school maine. the school needs to put into more safety level. my child got cyber bullied and harassed and the principle did nothing at all to stop the other child from hacking and stealing and social media and threats . the school didn't do a thing my child ended up calling the falmouth department to seak harrasment orders against a few people. disgusted
The school has a great teaching staff and offers many extra curricular activities from lacrosse to small group chorus and jazz band. It's as good as any private school and the kids and parents are very involved and committed.
After many months of research, we chose to move to Falmouth, Maine for their top notch school system. We have been completely blown away by the quality of education, the incredible teachers, and the student body. Our son just finished up his first year in the middle school and every step of the way was amazing. It is an incredibly well-rounded school with exceptional music, art, science, math and sports programs. Forbes Magazine just rated Falmouth the number one place to live and learn in the United States. Need I say more??
