Students at FMS are heterogeneously grouped into teaching teams, with teachers who specialize in Language Arts, Math, Science,Social Studies, and/or Reading. The students rotate among their core teachers during the day; however, they stay with the same set of teachers for their core academic subjects for the entire school year. This encourages an atmosphere conducive to both learning and fellowship, giving a "small school feel" within the confines of a larger campus. In order to provide special learning situations and expanded horizon experiences, students are also provided two Special Area(Related Arts) classes per day. These Special Area courses include:
- General Music
- Physical Education
FMS presents both academic and non-academic awards for those students whose skills, knowledge, or attitudes reflect exceptional performance. These awards include Honor Roll, Good Citizenship, Perfect Attendance, Leadership and Most Improved. Students can also participate in a variety of programs and activities to pursue their particular interest. Such programs include before- and after-school study sessions, tutorial and enrichment activities in core subjects, and service organizations as well as peer mentoring and peer tutoring.
