Why Should My Child Attend?

Your child will have the opportunity to interact and build relationships with their teachers and other students, without the added stress with being at a new school with 300 students.  The relationships they build with their teachers and students will give them a strong sense of belonging and help lead them to a successful 6th grade year.

You will get to meet Fischer Middle School’s excellent staff and administration and become involved and engaged before the new school year begins!
