History of Fayette Middle School

Fayette Middle School was originally built as Fayette County High School.  The present structure was built in 1934 after the old high school burned.  The present day fifth and sixth grade buildings were added to the original structure along with the band room and chorus room.  For many years, grades 6-12 were housed in this structure.  After Fayette Elementary School was built, grades 7-12 were housed on this campus.  Then in 1990, Fayette County High School was built for grades 9-12.  The sixth grade moved from Fayette Elementary and joined the seventh and eighth grade to form Fayette Middle School.  Mr. Ray Nelson, Mayor of the city of Fayette, became the administrator.  In the fall of 2000, fifth grade moved from the elementary school to become a part of Fayette Middle School.  Mr. Randy Thomley was principal of FMS from 2000 until 2005, and Mrs. Debbie Deavours became FMS principal in 2005.  Mr. Rodney Hannah has served as principal since 2007. 

3 Rs at FMS

Welcom to Fayette Middle School!  FMS is a SACS accredited fifth through eighth grade middle school located in Fayette, Alabama.  Our theme this year is "Whatever it Takes."

The faculty and staff at FMS are commiteed to identifying and addressing our students' needs.  Or primary goal is to provide  challenging academic programs in which each student can excel.  At the same time, leadership activities are offered to balance students' academic and personal growth.  The National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform says that a middle school design should be "academically excellent, developmentally responsive, and socially equitable."  We are striving daily to become that model.  Emphasis is placed on teaching students personal reponsibility.  Our motto is "Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Resourceful."  In addition we believe that colloboration among faculty, staff, parents and the community is essential; therefore, we welcome parent and community involvement.  Together we are a team dedicated to student learning.
