Farquhar is a wonderful school. Caring teachers and the best Principal around. We were new when my son started 6th grade here and he loves it. I love it too and am thrilled we picked this school.

My son loved his middle school years at this school. I feel like he was extremely prepared for high school. Students well behaved and respectful. The new principal is excellent. Parent involvement is high. My only complaint would be the overcontrolling PTA. I joined and listed my name on several things I was willing to volunteer for. I was never called. The same people want to control everything. Better ideas for fundraising needed. Overall however excellent school and teachers.
I am very satisfied with the quality. My child fells like she was in a private school.
I absolutely love this school. There is a great academic skills great teachers specially Mr. Green in 6th grade he has wonderful teaching skills.
I love Mr. Murphy. He is the bes principal i ever had in my whole entire life. Excellent principal!
Excellent principal and teachers. All are up-to-date on academics and dealing with the kids especially in todays society. A++
From 2002-2005 the school has improved because of the new administrative team and new creative staff. The parents are more involved with decision making and students are supported in many of their classes. The music department is very strong and there are many opportunities for all students in the school's after-school activities program.
