“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.

Preparing Students for Real World Experiences

This course is a class specifically designed for you, the student! In this course, students will be introduced to people working in an industry that interests them. Throughout this course, students take several interest inventory assessments to show them where their interests and strengths are and match them up to positions available in our area. The goal is to prepare students with the skills to secure a position with a company.
*Even if you are college-bound, this course will provide you with good information for any position you might want to pursue in the future.
