About FMS

Dear FMS Family,

It is my honor to serve as your campus Principal. The traditions of our school are great, established on the remarkable works of its namesake, Mr. Herman Furlough Jr. Our mission is to uphold this legacy by ensuring that all students are provided high-quality instruction and given equitable opportunities to be academically successful.

A student’s middle school years are the most transitional, and arguably, most defining period in their lives. It is during this time when specific actions determine their future endeavors. As administrators, teachers, and support personnel, we aim to encourage all students to utilize their unique talents to reach their maximum potential. The staff at FMS is committed to using every student encounter as a “teachable moment” to facilitate this process.

As we enter uncharted territory, our theme of “Tiger’s CLAW” will guide us through the school year. In keeping with our district vision of Expect More, Achieve More, our staff will Create unique opportunities for all students to learn using multiple platforms. High academic Achievement will serve as the expectation to ensure that FMS students will be able to withstand any challenges that await them in their future endeavors.

As Principal of Furlough Middle School, I am obligated to ensure that we maintain a safe and civil, high-achieving campus; while preparing students for high school and post-secondary readiness. I welcome our parents, community members, and business leaders to support us. The staff at FMS stands ready to partner with you. Our kids deserve it!

With Great Pleasure,
Alexis Dennis
Principal, Furlough Middle School
It’s Great To Be A Tiger!
