My daughter transferred to FMS at the beginning of 7th grade. We have been nothing but impressed with the quality of academics, the specials offered and administrative team. Mr. Thompson, the principal, is fantastic. Very open and friendly with the students and staff, and a forward, innovative thinker. ...  Read more

FMS is a warm and welcoming school and a great place to be during those important middle school years. The principal, administrators and staff are there for the students not only in the daily school work, but as role models/mentors and their own personal cheerleaders! The kids are challenged academically ...  Read more

Principal left to work as principal of the high school. The move was announced to the high school but he still hasn't told the kids at the middle school (who will be seeing him again in a year or two!) Very poor form. A few words of farewell, I'll miss you etc. would have established a lot of goodwill. ...  Read more

The teachers are great but it's hard to navigate around the school. I am currently in all honors classes and Quest, and I have to say that the classes are spectacular but we only do packets, which gets very boring after a while.

this school is average. i've seen much better. the PTO parent/teacher organization is nothing more than social club. they have meetings during working hours so if you want to get involved you have to take off from work which most parents can't. it's a great opportunity for wealthy stay-at-home moms to ...  Read more

My child is in the 7th grade. The teacher's at Frelinghuysen encourage the kids to care about the subject matter. The teachers are engaged and work hard to make sure the kids are as well. The school provides days at the end of the summer where you can go to the school and meet your child's teachers. ...  Read more

I think the FMS is a great learning experience but in house one there is a lack of writing in sixth grade it's only three writing pieces a year. in elementary school I wrote twelve. It's ridicules that we are writing as much as a third grade class would.

The kids enjoy going to school at FMS. If your child is gifted, they will have access to honors classes and a gifted and talented program. The school is big, there are a lot of teachers, and while they try to make it feel smaller, and more of a community by creating a house system, it is easy for a child ...  Read more
