FMA is the most welcoming, peaceful, diverse, engaging, creative place for kids. FMA's Principal, Robin Harris, is a visionary creating an environment where kids learn about the world at large, get engaged in international programs, and where kids are nurtured like in a family. From pre-K and on, kids have four music lessons/week. It has a beautiful basketball gym where kids get to have physical activity. There is a huge emphasis on sciences and life long learning. We moved to Cambridge after the school lottery for the year was closed, and I was terrified of where my son would go. We found FMA almost accidently. From the first day, when Robin Harris took time to personally introduce us to the school, we felt like at home and have loved it ever since. My son wants to go to the school every day. Grateful parent

My daughter has been going to the school for 2 years now, and I found the staff and faculty are all willing to go the extra mile for our kids. It's really encouraging to know that we are able to speak our minds and actually be heard regarding our children's education.

The principal Robin Harris is like an angel to us. I have never ever seen such a great principal that is so willing to help the parents and the children. With such a great principal, I think the school must be great. I am looking forward for my both son staying in this school.

I Love this school. It's a place where each individual can grow. This school embraces all cultures and learning styles. The students here have expressed to me that they love this school more than some of the other schools that they have attended. The students get to travel to places like China and enjoy the arts. Some favorites are musical instruments, computers and they really appreciate gym this time of year.

My son went to school at the FMA this year and it was such a great experience for him. He'll be going next year as well. I looked at the other schools in the area and couldn't believe the staff turn over rate (Cambridgeport). There's nothing worse than unhappy teachers. The class sizes are small. the enrichment classes in the after school are awesome (piano) and the extended day is such a great opportunity for kids to learn all subjects. They have Spanish for the students!!

I am not a parent of an FMA student, but I do have the honor of being a regular volunteer there. I have worked as a childcare professional for ten years. I've worked with teachers, teenagers, veteran childcare professionals and MEC beurocrats. I've worked at afterschool programs and all - day programs. I feel that I have the objectivity to say that the teachers and many of the parents at FMA have really rallied to try to help a school at the mercy of the MCAS system,not to mention our presidential administration's other misguided initiatives.This is a school that is only four years into what was a major change for the families and staff( when The Fletcher School and Maynard Academy had to combine)!I am confident about it's future.

My son only attended kindergarten and I wish he hadn't. The administration really did not care about the kids, there was not even a faculty member to meet the smaller children at the bus, not to mention how nobody ever knew what, when why how or who. I visited the classroom 3-4 times a week for 30 - 45 minutes each time. My son entered the class in the top 5% and left in the bottom 3%. He suddenly developed 'behavioral issues' 2 months before school ended, 1 week after I informed the teacher and principal that he would be attending a different school next year. Fletcher Maynard Academy made me feel like a bad parent for sending my son there.
