As one of the Superintendent’s Priority Schools, Fern Bacon Middle School is on course for change and excellence! Critical to our transformative work has been changing the school culture and climate, creating structures and systems and developing programs and policies to align our work and yield substantial results. 

Our instructional model is based on student achievement data, frequent progress monitoring and research-based school-wide practices that provide access for all students.  In addition to intervention support and Gifted and Talented classes, Fern Bacon provides many enriching after-school clubs and support programs.  One of our hallmark programs is the “Key to Success” Saturday Program which provides ten weeks of study designed to prepare college bound students for academic success and student empowerment.
