Fort Settlement Middle School

Fort Settlement is committed to meeting the unique needs of its students by fostering a community of academic excellence and social responsibility.

Fort Settlement has garnered attention on a state and national level, recently being designated as a 2012 Texas State School of Character (one of just three in Texas) and being named as a 2007 No Child Left Behind – Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.

Dedicated teachers work not only to guide students through middle school, but also to help them become lifelong learners. The curriculum is grounded in solid academic standards customized to middle school-age children. Teachers and administrators are cognizant of the concerns of adolescents and work to create a climate of both intellectual development and a caring community.

Parents are intensely involved in the school, with Fort Settlement's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) raising a tremendous amount of money to support student learning. Thanks to PTO efforts, the school has a digital video security system, a track and additional classroom equipment including microscopes, telescopes, atlases and more. The PTO also funds the summer library program. Safety was a PTO priority in 2007, with money raised to relocate the school's courtyard fence to enclose the walkway doors used by students and staff.
