Falmouth Middle School is a community of collaborative and engaged learners who value diversity, kindness, creativity, excellence, courage, integrity, relevance, responsibility for self, and service to others. Within a supportive environment, we strive to provide every student who attends our school with knowledge and skills necessary for competence in lifelong pursuits of learning, self-reliance, personal fulfillment, productivity, and social responsibility. Falmouth Middle School is currently home to 510 students in grades six through eight. Our students participate in a wide variety of extracurricular activities designed to meet their ever-changing interests. We offer a number of intramural activities and more than 15 after-school clubs.

At Falmouth Middle School students earn good grades and achieve high scores on state assessments, but what makes us special is the unprecedented commitment by staff to provide the highest quality education for students. We approach learning with a business-like attitude and a sense of humor, equally. We employ proficiency-based practices, not because they are the newest trend in education but because they make sense for our students. The Falmouth Middle School community continually refines the practices that make it an outstanding place to learn. We continue to support teacher leadership through our professional development program, and teachers' voices are heard and considered throughout decision-making. We foster strong relationships with families through clear and frequent communication. Falmouth Middle School is a thoughtfully evolving community of learners of all ages. Our core values of respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness, and safety drive all we do.
