    Farragut Middle School Information
     
    ImageKnox County's middle schools provide a smooth transition between elementary and secondary programs. They focus on the special needs of the preadolescent child. The instructional program places emphasis on the basic skills and provides opportunities for students to continue their general education and to discover special interests. The areas of language arts, reading, social studies, mathematics, and science are taught by a team of teachers, each specializing in one or more of these subjects. Art, computer literacy, technology education, health, music (choral, general, and instrumental), and physical education are taught by specialists in each subject area. School counselors help students develop personal and educational skills necessary for attainment of life goals.

    Farragut Middle School
    has a short but distinguished history. Created in 1971 to provide a smoother transition between existing elementary and secondary programs, FMS has achieved much success. We view our accomplishments with caution, however. Because we believe the process of education is just as important as its product, we continue to seek and to discover needs for change, for improvement and for refinement. Although we know our school stands among the very best, perfection is a goal to which we aspire, but never expect to attain. Because we are accountable to our past, present, and future, we remain constant in our pursuit of excellence.
