FMS is a good school with many great, caring teachers and wonderful support staff! Much improvement in last few years. Offers many enrichment programs & activities. The Communities In Schools program should be in every school(full time)! I've seen improvement with implementation of Pre IB program. Parents involvement is the key to a great school!! If FMS could reach the parents & get them on board, it could easily be a GREAT school!
i attended ferndale also and this is also a great school. People like the person who mad the first comment just judge the kids that they see outside of class, which isnt many. But if u take a look into a Ferndsle class room you can find young students trying to do their best to get an education. Frendale is a great school and i hold lots of memories there. The parents are hard working and so are the students and teachers.
I actually attended this school from 2002 to 2005 and I moved in the summer after eighth grade graduation. I love this school. The teachers are closely associated with the students. They have great programs like CIS and SOS both of which I was involved in. They allowed students to be students...and have fun. Nowadays, schools don't allow field trips to amusement parks(as a reward for completion of a program.) They view it as unfair to allow students to be absent all day for a non-eduacational reason. But if students were aware of incentives for good behavior like such; there would be a larger amount of students behaving, and overall making an effort to be a model student. As of now, I am a junior involved in the Culinary Program at my school.But the principal won't allow our annual picnic because its all day and he views it as uneducational.
Horrible only few good teachers bad enviorment. Gang filled with much profanity.
