The School Buzz: Fountain Middle School named prestigious ‘Trailblazer School To Watch’

Fountain Middle School says their future is so bright they gotta wear shades.

FMS, part of Fountain-Fort Carson D-8, has just been selected as a 2021 Colorado Trailblazer School To Watch. It's a prestigious honor given to just two schools, out of roughly 700 that were judged in the state. Admins, teachers and students all celebrated on Friday.

"For some of our students, this is the highlight of their year. Being able to recognize in the nation, they're one of only a hundred schools receiving this recognition. It really speaks highly to them," said Dr. Bill Dallas, FMS principal.

During judging, the Colorado Association of Middle Level Education considered schools that demonstrate excellence in academics, development, social equity and organization. Classes are observed for three years, this year virtually, due to the pandemic. Teachers and administrators are interviewed. Even parents get phone calls. Fountain Middle School impressed in all categories.
