Fountain Middle School Ratings & Reviews

So far not good. I would move him to other school if we could afford a private school. Our son is special needs and can't read well but he was on the honor roll? How does that make sense? He's gotten yelled at and things go missing all the time. I don't know what's wrong or going on at all if no one says anything. I would love cameras in the school so we can really see what's going on. My son's SE teacher & paras before were super sweet and caring. Our son flourished with them. He felt loved and supported. Not so much here. The communication from the teachers to parents is horrible. Last year we were not finding out about lockdowns until hrs after they happened.We asked over and over for teachers to write in his agenda because my son doesn't remember most of what goes on during the day. Only one who does is the para does when she can. When people try to address issues they treat us with condescending or are dismissive attitudes.There's no music program.The classes we signed up for where all messed up even though they were requested a year earlier. I have asked several times that if school was shut down early or an emergency for the SE teacher to text or call me but nothing. We have not been as involved this as we have in the past but we have ask what we could do to work together as a team with them but we get nothing. My son used to love school but he's starting to dislike it.There are some great teachers who really try but it's hard when they have way more students then teachers. I would really just love it if they talked to us like real people instead of this us verses them type of behavior.

Canned Walrusin the last weekSchool was all great and good until they decided to mess everything up recently, they run it like a prison. Students can't sit where they want at lunch, they have to exit and enter through grade specific doors, they can't even go on one side of the building. I believe they think that the best way to keep kids out of trouble is too make them feel like they are in trouble, which is a horrible thing to do, and much worse for those kiddos who don't get in trouble. The lunch situation is the worse, what do they have against kids socializing witg there friends? I heard they allow kids to use there phones in exchange, but what about those who don't have a phone? They are just left feeling upset that they have nothing to do. I feel they value sceens and texting over basic human interaction. I would not send my child here unless it was my only choice. Overall I'd rate this school a 3/10, the teachers are okay but the administration is just plain garbage.

My child has attended Fountain Middle School for the 6th and 7th grade. The short review is Fountain Middle School is a bit below average I think because they are in transition and from my mixed feelings with my child's learning experience. Overall, education is lacking in content, little to no homework even for advanced classes, some teachers are absent with communication, common core, quality of instruction from some teachers is questionable, administration is new, occasional bullying and fights, and lots of disorganization.Now, for a little more explanation, if you care to read further....As implied, classes are not demanding, and my child's current teachers do not communicate well. There is online access to assignment titles and grades, but without explanation of details concerning what was taught or the objective. Usually, there's just a grade without comments. Parents must be proactive, but it would be helpful to have a partnership with the teachers that I don't personally find at this school. I think email is relied upon heavily. Handouts and conferences are becoming more scarce necessitating the need for parents to reach out if not hearing from teachers about your student.There is an "enrichment" class which is a pure waste of tax payer money. The children make paper airplanes, drop eggs, and recently, stack notecards for class lessons! I was thinking maybe there were useful concepts being taught alongside these activities, but no, just a waste of time. On average, there are 3 nights a week without homework. The school has student ambassadors and a National Junior Honor Society chapter that is about 3 years old. There are other clubs and electives like choir, industrial tech, art, and drama. I was surprised there is no PTA, PTO, FCA, booster club, or any similar parent involvement group.The administration and around 12 teachers left who were at FMS last year. I'm not sure why the drastic change in staff. This 2016-17 school year has a new set of principals, 1 head and 3 assistants, one of which is the former dean, Mr. Walker. Perhaps it will take time to turn everything around for the better.Hopefully, this review has been helpful. God bless in your search!

For the second year the "Enrichment" classes have devolved into a study hall. The computer classes have been marginally valuable at best. Core classes have been hit or miss. There are some great teachers here, but there are also many that are not so great. This is the third principal in as many years, and a number of the other administrative staff have issues as well.

The School and teachers are Great, Whoever The Dean Mr. Walker has some type of problem with the kids and the kids can not do anything wrong because instead of him helping them he critize and tries to punish them. He is not a good role model for the kids so I do not know why he has this position. What he should do is a prosecutor for the court.
