    I don't have anything positive to say about this school. I unfortunately had to attend FMS and now my own child goes there. The teachers (middle school in particular) seem like they could care less about teaching and spend most of the time sitting at their desks with their phones; having the entire class write rules when one child is a behavior problem. Much of the staff from when I attended nearly two decades ago is still there. Their attitudes have not changed as they continue to just "show up for a paycheck." When problems with a child being bullied or harassed have been addressed with administration the problem conveniently gets downplayed. They don't take any threats seriously and continue to keep special education students with severe behavior issues at the school who should have been transferred out years ago.

    This is my last year here at Fort McCoy and I have to say that I will miss it soo much. A lot of the staff there are really really nice. I love everthing about this school. I may not get the best of grades there or be the most popular but I love the school anyways. It is the best school I have gone to in my 14 years. Even when I get super super sick I get sad that I can't be there. So that is all I really have to say about Fort McCoy. I reccimend this school to anyone.. =]

    I have the highest respest for all the personnal I have come in contact with during the years my children have gone to Fort MCCoy school. Both have learning problems and I feel the school has gone over and above in providing them with good learning skills and a positive attitude. I commend them all.

    I feel Fort Mccoy school is a great school.The teachers seem to be dedicated to the students and parents with trying to help overcome learning obsticals that some children may suffer from. I feel this school is wonderful with their dicipline rules. I can tell my daughter really respects the rules because she knows there will be diciplined if she does not obey the rules.

    I dont think this school cares enough about their students or have enough parent conference. I also believe that a parent should be notified if his or her student is failing. By doing this the parent and teacher and try to find out why and what can be done about this instead of finding out in a report card mailed at the end of the year. Also the child might have problems in reading and should be in special classes instead of taken out for their school to score a better grade.

    Ft. McCoy offers so much for their students' academic success. The teachers and administrators go above and beyond for their students!
