“Our goal is to prepare students for life; whether that be going off to college or entering the workforce. We want students to go out into the world and live a fulfilled life with purpose and good intention.” 

– Greg Smith, High School Principal


Many of our students dive into their careers head first! Whether that’s going down a military path, climbing the ranks at their current place of employment or starting somewhere new! 


A lot of our students loved school so much they are going back! Our college bound hounds have a lot of scholarship opportunities and helpful resources to ease their transition. 


The CTE courses at FMHS provide students with real-world experience and give them a chance to explore their talents. These courses also give students a head start in their college coursework and/or trades career.
