Both of my children attended Fern Ridge Middle School. I was very impressed by the quality of education they received, especially in core curriculum. A great percentage of the school's educators are highly qualified, passionate teachers. An A+ school in my book!

My daughter has attended this school going on 2 years. For a public school, they do a good job with the resources that they have. I have been impressed with all of her teachers. When she experienced bullying, we went to the principal and the problem was dealt with immediately. I am disappointed that there is no music programs, but that unfortunately is pretty standard these days. My daughter loves her school.

Fern Ridge Middle School is an unfortunate victim of the Fern Ridge School District. A school district that cares only for gaining high marks in academics but leaving children behind in developing life skills or tapping into their passions and encouraging their overall development. Bullying in this school is at an all time high and the staff and principal provided my child with no protection from bullying. I eventually had to pull them from the district due to bullying and lack of help for children who need extra help academically. My child now receives A's in AP classes in another school who was willing to give them the extra help they needed to succeed. The district discourages outside organizations and activities for children with the exception of outside sports programs TSP, Kidsports and Babe Ruth. Several other educational programs to reach area youth have been turned away unlike other schools districts in lane county who work with several programs that reach out to area youth. No extracurricular activities exists. Music and art education has been cut completely from this school with no interest by district to supply these valuable courses through outside sources.

One of my children attended FRMS for all 3 years, another for two. While there are a few teachers there who really care and try to make a positive impact, there are MANY who don't seem to at all. The leadership at the school is extremely poor and the administration in the district is worse. FRMS has a reputation for being a "tough" school, socially speaking. There are a lot of accounts of bullying, and low supervision of the students by staff. Many parents have chosen to pull their students from the school and send them elsewhere in the past couple of years. I would NOT recommend this school.

I have 3 boys. One in elementary and 2 in the middle school. They have gone to school in the Fern Ridge District for the last 2 years and I'm severely disappointed in the involvement level or the caring from the teachers. And I feel that they have taken away too much from the kids.
