Middle School Academics

Grade Levels

FPS’ middle school program is open to all students who are entering grade 6, 7, or 8.

Challenging Curriculum

The middle school curriculum aligns with either California state standards or common core standards for grades 6-8. Students also have the opportunity to take high school level math courses and earn high school credit beginning in 7th grade (Algebra 1 followed by Geometry). Other high school courses can be made available to middle school students who are ready for a more challenging curriculum.

Guaranteed High School Admission

FPS students successfully completing 8th grade and passing their required courses are automatically guaranteed enrollment in FPS’ high school program. Students also receive a 10% discount off the standard FPS high school tuition rate per year when enrolling in FPS’ high school program following completion of 8th grade at FPS.

Class Sizes

FPS purposefully seeks to keep the teacher to student ratio in the classroom at a level which allows more personalized instruction and attention given to each student.

ELD (English Language Development) Instruction

For students who need extra assistance in developing their English language skills, FPS offers middle school level ELD English, science, and history courses.
