At Fremont Middle School, our students come first. Our focus is building strong relationships with our students. Our teachers know their students’ interests, their strengths, and what makes each child unique. Our teachers work collaboratively throughout the year to plan engaging lessons to prepare our students to be college and career ready.

At Fremont Middle School, we proudly implement the middle school model. This research-based model is specifically designed for students who are not quite adults, yet certainly no longer children. While many schools simply separate students by age with the same programming in place, Fremont Middle School recognizes and celebrates the middle level with specialized programming designed specifically for the pre-teen student. This programming allows students to grow and learn in a “small school” environment. Students and teachers are divided into teams of approximately 100 students. The primary goal of each team is to provide 21st Century, real-world instruction through the lens of a small community. Teams focus on interdisciplinary core instruction in a common space with a common set of instructors.

At Fremont Middle School, we believe in the National Middle School Association’s essential attributes that middle school curriculum be developmentally responsive, challenging, empowering, and equitable. Our delivery model is based upon a district-developed, district-wide instructional playbook with common terminology highlighting research-based teaching strategies and on-going teacher training.

At Fremont Middle School, we feel it is important that our students are continuously immersed in exploratory environments designed to capitalize on curiosity. This exposes students to a variety of academic, vocational, and recreational subjects to ensure future success in high school and the post-secondary level.

At Fremont Middle School, students enjoy opportunities to be involved in clubs and organizations outside the school day. FMS is also home to many successful and award-winning athletic teams and fine arts groups. We strongly encourage students to get involved. Research reveals students who are involved in extracurricular activities achieve at higher levels and are more successful than students who choose not to participate in school activities outside the academic day. The more students are involved and engaged, the greater the experience!

At Fremont Middle School, we believe teaching social skills is an important pairing to the middle school model. We utilize a multi-tiered system of support that is evidence-based, data-informed, and designed to increase student achievement, school attendance, and overall school success. Our staff is committed to using a proactive approach to teach appropriate behaviors through the development of strong positive adult-to-student relationships. Our expectations are: Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Safe!

At Fremont Middle School, we believe all students can excel at high levels especially when a partnership and relationship exists between students, staff, and parents. We take pride in developing the intellectual, ethical, physical, social, and emotional growth of each student.
