Falcon Middle School is dedicated to the intellectual, physiological, and social/emotional development of students during the transition from childhood to adolescence. While working as a part of a continuum of educational services, we recognize the uniqueness of these students and provide educational programs that are centered around the needs of these early adolescents.
We believe in the mastery of basic academic skills, complemented by a program of specialized and exploratory activities stressing inquiry and creativity. These programs are primarily designed to allow active participation and will result in positive educational experiences for all involved.
Falcon Middle School believes in a positive educational climate and stands for the development of positive relationships between students, parents, and educators while learning courtesy, responsibility, and consideration for others. We utilize Positive Behavior Intervention Support and the 4 B’s: Be Here, Be Respectful, Be Appropriate, and Be a Good Citizen.
