“Achieving with Pride” is the motto the students and faculty live by at Fallston Middle School. Student art work will surround you as you enter our school. You will find a warm, caring environment that fosters student excellence. Our students continually score high on standardized testing.
Fallston Middle has nine interdisciplinary teams consisting of a language arts teacher, a math teacher, a social studies teacher, and a science teacher. The exception is the eighth grade, where world language is offered as an additional class and the science and social studies classes are not team based. Students participate in physical education and unified arts in addition to their academic subjects. Each team of teachers meets on a regular basis to discuss instruction, student data, and how best to meet student individual needs.
The staff, as well as the students, are learning new strategies and techniques to be successful learners. We are working towards utilizing technology to enhance and enrich the learning in the classroom. While we continue to work on achieving high scores on the PARCC Assessments, developing well-prepared and well-rounded students is our priority. Our staff works to ensure a safe learning environment for all students and staff. We use Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to recognize good behavior and achievement.
Fallston Middle enjoys strong support from our parents and the community. The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) fundraisers have upgraded the school in many areas. The PTA also provides funding for technology, funds for special events, and supports our students through a variety of other activities.
We are extremely proud of our school, its students, the faculty, and our community!
