I attended FMS for 5 years because of poor grades . While I had "fixed" my grades problem, it wasn't because of a better teaching style or increased time studying. It was because of how ridiculously easy the classes were. I put forth maybe 5 minutes of effort to get the homework done before i walked ...  Read more

Fishburne is an amazing school that changed my life. I was struggling when I arrived in 96 and the school was a pivotal in my turn around. Raised by a single Mom, she noticed the lack of motivation and direction in my life a decided to sign me up. It was a dramatic change from NY and the change of pace ...  Read more

I went from low grades, to Fishburne, to my first choice college. FMS specializes in educating boys and turning them into men. There's a growing academic consensus that that young men were never supposed to be strapped into chairs for 9 hours a day, and that modern schooling neglects the special needs ...  Read more

My experience at Fishburne Military School was exceptional.

Love that I can go on and see the grades in different subjects. I think every school should have that.

The staff is very easy to contact and where extremely helpful during the admission process. Being able to check a student s grades immediately instead of waiting months for a progress report actually makes you feel like you have a grip on what s going on. My only issue so far is that I wish it was closer ...  Read more

The school is disgusting in every sense. They make us clean only when people come to visit the school
