We have paid close attention to what our students do when they leave FMS, and are proud to report that their educational careers have been exemplary.
Of the FMS students who were eligible for the highly competitive new KCMS STEM program this year, 100% were accepted.
Equally important to us are the earliest outcomes of this experience—the light in the eyes of our youngest students as they come to understand that school is a wonderful place for gathering with good friends and that learning is not an obligation, but a central joy of living.
Our enduring mission is to preserve that light, that it might shine on always.
I love it here. I love my teachers and the works and having snacks and playing with my friends outside. I love reading and math and learning neat things about China.
I like to talk to my friends. And learning about different things about states and countries and what happens in them. I like reading books with my teacher Amy.
Kelly helps me learn to read with sandpaper letters. Amy helps me do art. Holli teaches me amazing things. I like singing with my friends and helping the little kids.
I’ve sent all three of my kids to FMS. My three year old loves school. My five year old is reading fluently. And my seven year old made a seamless transition to first grade.
