    Both of my children loved their school. The teachers and principal communicated well with me. They always had opportunity to volunteer in the building. Loved this school.

    Both of my kids have attended FMI and I LOVE IT. It's staff (in my opinion) are even more dedicated than the elementary staff from the other Marion schools. Any problems that I have had have been met with help from Mr Murphy (principal) and I love the fact that they encourage parent involvement. Excellent STAFF all the way around. My kids are not in the special needs programs but I have had an opportunity to work with those staff and let me tell you that they are soooo patient and understanding! Much more understanding than I would be... Thank you FMI!!!
