    This school was very disappointing with regards to communication efforts on the part of the administration. In fact there was hardly any communication with them because they very rarely returned phone calls even though it had to do with health and safety issues within the school. After our experience there I had numerous parents come up to me and say that they were dealing with the same thing as well. The teachers were great but the administration was very disappointing.

    My child is in the eighth grade at FCMS and we have mixed feelings. There are some wonderful teachers and a few who seem to be inconvenieced by questions from children who need help. We are considering a local private school because of our disappointment.
