Open Quote Teachers do not form relationships. Some of the worst teachers I've ever been around and I've been in education over 20 years.
There was no curriculum for sixth grade and admin even admitted this.
Administrators not willing to work with you, extremely defensive.
TRULY- do your child a favor and skip this school. Close Quote

Open Quote As a parent of an 8th grader here, we have found the education outstanding. The teachers were very good, personable and well prepared. Our child had multiple opportunities to be involved in music groups during her activity periods which allowed her to take other options (foreign language) as an elective. Band program is outstanding! Have known families with children who had special needs and they found FRMS to be very supportive. Close Quote

Open Quote This place was like the 7th level of hell. Five years later I still have problems driving by it. The worst part is that I know I am not the only one who feels this way. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
