Welcoming Students to FHS

Welcoming Students to FHS

The Falmouth Compass spells out our beliefs, which include creating multiple pathways for students, improving our professional practice, cultivating a climate of respect and wellness and fostering authentic learning opportunities.

Falmouth High School employs a rich, collaborative, problem-solving approach to support all students. Our Student Centered Team, (SCT) functions as a "think-tank" for providing solutions to address a myriad of student needs using data and teacher reports to inform decisions. Our SCT team meets weekly and is comprised of counselors, specialists, administrators and teachers. Teachers are asked to refer students or advisees on a weekly basis who may be struggling academically or socially.

SCT acts as a funnel for student supports and works within the school-wide, multi-tiered, Response to Intervention (RtI) system to address academic, behavioral, social, and emotional needs of students. In addition, we explore multiple pathways for students to pursue learning experiences that fit their individual needs and passions, which allow them to demonstrate knowledge and skills toward learning targets.

This system allows for real-time interventions for students at all levels of learning, college preparatory to advanced placement. Communication and collaboration are key to providing ongoing support for all of our students at FHS.
