  • MSA Certification  MSA Certification

    Certified in the Magnet Schools of America Standards of Excellence! 

    Farmington Woods IB/PYP Magnet Elementary School was among the first 55 schools located in 12 states (AL, CA, CT, FL, LA, MD, NC, NV, SC, TN, TX, and WI) to successfully complete an approximately nine month evaluation process and demonstrate through evidence, reflection, and strategic action that it has established the best practices entailed in the Magnet School Standards of Excellence

    “In an increasingly complex school choice environment, parents, families, students, and local communities can be confident that each nationally certified magnet school is held to the same high standards,” said MSA Executive Director Todd Mann. “The certification process is groundbreaking and the first of its kind. It was created to recognize our most exemplary magnet programs.”

    The national certification process is based on the Magnet School Standards of Excellence and the five pillars of magnet schools (diversity; innovative curriculum and professional development; academic excellence; high quality instructional systems; and, family and community partnerships). These pillars and standards define the essential elements and characteristics of high-quality magnet programs.

  • FWES Partners with Cary Rotary International to support Literacy

    read a book FWES thanks Cary Rotary International for their partnership to support the Read A Book Get A Book Literacy initiative. The PTA and school were presented with $500 to use to purchase reading material for struggling readers. Readers get to select texts and the books are the student's to keep in their home library. When they can read the book successfully and bring it back to school to read with an adult volunteer, they may then select another book to keep and practice reading. We appreciate Emily Dean, our literacy coach, and our PTA Rotary Reader volunteers for supporting this project. It is essential that students have books at home to read and to practice the skills they are learning in school and this program allows students to build a personal collection while also getting 1 on 1 time with an adult to practice reading.
