My daughter started 7th grade here, and just from the meet &greet and enrollment as well as the first day of school I am so disappointed. This has been a horrific experience!!! The staff is unhelpful, rude, and does not communicate with parents at all!!! For some reason the children involved in the Magnet program are more important then the students zoned in the area, and they misplaced paperwork and, my child sat for 5 hours freezing waiting for them to activate her, and get her a schedule and off to class. I pray this gets better or the school will be meeting with two very angry parents.

I worked here for the 2012-13 school year and I will have to say that this was the worst teaching experience I've ever had in my professional career. There are some good kids at Fondren but they are a minority mixed in with kids who have huge discipline problems. There was a high turn over rate with staff and teachers (the principal left as well). The principal also did not show support for many school activities and rarely showed their presence around the school as well. The 6th graders were awesome but the 7th and 8th grade needs a lot of work with major discipline issues. I would HIGHLY recommend entering this school as an HOURLY teacher before signing a contract. I was very relieved when I left this school. Good luck to the few teachers who remained there and the new principal.

I love working at Fondren Middle School. The kids are not bad kids they just want someone to listen. I have been there 3 yr and the staff is great. Those that complain about it being a bad school should step up and be more active in the students lives. Until you are on the inside you have no clue what it takes to work there.

Fondren is one best middle school I have personally seen, I am a former student and did really good academically. I do believe the school is not the probem but rather the attitude of the lazy students and parents that are unwilling to contribute but complain much. Every school has problems, even "good" schools, I meet students who have attended great schools and hate the art of studying or of actually doing their work. I have recieved much support from staff and teachers in Fondren. I still keep in touch with former teachers and receive the same asisstance and help with my high school work. This is a great school, people just need the will to better themselves.

Pathetic school , they should burn it down , Bad academic and everything, The food is terrible, There's too many fights in the school and gang related issues.


Posted April 13, 2010

This middle school is terrible. I graduated in class of '06 and this school has a very violent atmosphere. 90% of the students are not in magnet. The school has one small hallway where are all the students who actually seek a higher education are taught. The magnet teachers are only satisfactory, not superb but enough to help you pass TAKS. The students outside of the magnet area are violent and are only looking for a good time and not a good education. If you want your child to seek an education in a safe atmosphere, look elsewhere!

Fondren is the best school. If your kid goes here they will be happy. The princpal Mrs.Rangel is the best. To get your kid registerd go to the auditorium located on you left the door before the other door. Sometimes we have little contest.Like 6th, 7th,and 8th grade compete to see who can be the best grade I just got out of the 6th grade so this year I will be going to the 7th. Also we have a P.E class and electives like: Dance, Art, Karate, Computer, and more. Thank you for reading. Love, Student of fondren MS home of the mighty mustangs http://www.fondrenmiddleschool.com/

Fondren is a excellent school and how would I know this is because im a 6th grader that go to that school.Okay it might have its promblems but every school has something wrong with it so please don't fault Fondren for a bad place to send children because Welch Middle School is worser than our school.I love Fondren and I know others that do too.

I think it is a great school. It all depends on the parent/student. The teachers are very helpful if the child is willing to learn.

i am a student that attends this school.the teachers are very supportive but i think the school should organize a pta or pto so that the parents can be more involved with their childrens education. i also think the school should have more extracurricular activities.

I was a problem child who attended this school, it turned my life around. I have awards there today. Kind and supportive teachers and an excellent athletic and academic program.You should be proud to have a child attend this school.

During the time my child was attending this school and had problems the principle of the school was never there to talk to me one on one. I was always talking to the assistant princple of another grade not even her assistant principle of the 6th grade. I personally found that to be unprofessinal.

I am a parent of a child that has attended Fondren for the last two years.And through our experience,we've encountered no parent activity with the staff,meaning parents need to be more involved. The administration shows very little concern for the parents that do show interest in their childs education. Administration has no tolerance for even little issues concerning the children's behavior. No communication is a very big concern for me with this school.

In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
