The school overall is pretty good, the teachers are nice and willing to offer help. However the Dean Mr Walker needs to get off his high horse and realize he doesn't need to have a power trip with parents and especially the students.

FMS is a great school. The teachers truly care about the students and do anything they can to help the students with their academics. I have a very open communication with the teachers and I have 2 students there. Not once have I had trouble reaching a teacher with a quetsion or concern.

We are very involved parents and we had some problem getting information about our son's progress in 7th grade. Teachers could be a little more in tune with parents.

Programs are average, after school activities very limited. Administrative staff is not good. There has been a high turn over in administrative staff. Teachers try hard but lack the leadership to make the school better.

The teachers in Fountain Middle School are highly trained and skilled ...  Read more
