PARENTS: Worst school ever!! Stay away if you can. Principal is clueless and denies drugs and bullying going on. He won't take any complaints from parents, especially females. Coaches are verbally abusive to the students. Disgraceful! I don't know how they keep their jobs!! Frisco ISD should fire these people.Submitted by a parent

Coming toward the end of three years at Fowler I couldn't have hoped or expected a better , educational experience or environment for my son. Our experience at FMS along with FISD has exceeded every expectation and raised the bar on what can be accomplished in public schools. I applaud the staff at FMS and wish to thank them for their exemplary service !Submitted by a parent

The principals only care about money, status, and wealthy/influential parents' kids. If you're not rich, they will let the teachers and everyone else trample your child's dignity and self-esteem. Disgraceful.Submitted by a parent

One last thing, fowler is extremely diverse. About 35 percent asian 45 Caucasian 10 African American and 8 percent Hispanic and 2 other. So I'll you are uncomfortable with the mixing of cultures best avoid our school.

Terrible. The teachers are nice, but the administrators are all rude and completely disconnected from the student body. Struggling or non-conforming students are treated in an abusive manner, and no one tries to show any compassion. The head principal is a bully who fosters a culture of bullying at this school. Don't send your child here if you can help it.Submitted by a parent

My 2 kids went to Fowler. Most of the teachers are nice and very good teachers. As more then one parent mentioned in her/his post, my children don't like the the coaches and the assistant principal either. They are clueless when it comes to talking with kids. Most kids are afraid to talk to them, even to ask simple questions, especially coaches. Example: my daughter missed a game and i wanted to know if she was gonna play the next one and/or she has stay after practice for make ups. My daughter did not want to talk to the coach, she was scared to be yelled at. Then i wrote an email, simple and short just to check about scheduling. I work and there is no bus after normal dismissal time, so I need to prepare myself. For my surprise, the coach went straight to my daughter complaining that I should not have written to them, that she (my daughter) would find that out in pracice. Really??? Whats wrong with that???? Why they are so aggressive and passive aggressive???? Not happy with that :( Anyways, that's the only negative thing about Fowler.Submitted by a parent

My child has ADHD (inattentive) and a number of Teachers either don't have the desire, time, bandwidth or skills to teach in the way and manner suited for this learning difference, regardless of state requirement(s). This has made it difficult to succeed and maintain a healthy level of confidence. I hope for a turnaround.Submitted by a parent

My son had a good experience at Fowler. The teaching staff provides good instruction and leadership. I feel my son is adequately prepared for the transition to high school.Submitted by a parent

25% of teachers are great;25% don't care & seem to not like kids;the other 50% are pretty average.So, I guess it's just a roll of the dice whether your child gets a great education or left behind.Students not having their own textbooks is bad, especially w/how much we pay in property taxes for education.I was told textbooks aren't used as teaching is geared to TAKS curriculum.Students NEED textbooks, not hand outs & journals they paste them into.I have never heard of such a thing & we lived in 2 other states who also had state testing.Kids still had textbooks.How will they learn to use textbooks in high school/college if not using them now?Studying for tests is difficult if journal notes are missing.Also lacking is use of "Home Access."It is not being used to its potential.Teachers should be required to post homework/assignments due dates & vital notes or study guides.If Home Access was really being used like it should be, it would be a very valuable learning tool.Fowler should improve this & mandate teachers use Home Access more effectively.Overall, I like Fowler,but agree principals/front office are bad w/kids & seem to work on fear instead of being positive role models.Sad!Submitted by a parent

Fowler does a lot to help students achieve, especially if they are below grade level in core subjects. The teachers are communicative with the parents and strive to motivate their students to do their best. However, I question the efficacy of some of their methods. I understand that students should be graded on their own merits in class and on tests, but my eighth grader hardly ever has homework (his second grade brother typically has more homework than he does) and at times the homework is trivial (e.g., coloring a picture). I d expect more work to come home for the students to build on what they ve learned in school and prepare for the workload of high school. The orchestra program in wonderful with a very motivated instructor and much opportunity for growth and participation in performance events.Submitted by a parent

I've been at Fowler MS 6th-8th and im proud to be a falcon! Most teachers there are very supportive, but there are so many students this year i think that students are not receiving as much individual attention. Overall fowler was a great experience.
