Welcome to Fort Mill Middle School, Home of the Yellow Jackets!
I am honored to serve as principal of this fantastic school community. Fort Mill Middle School’s mission is to nurture and educate our students while providing a successful transition between their elementary and secondary years. We expect our students to strive for excellence in everything they do, but we also understand that the middle years are a time to try new things, learn from missteps, and to grow socially and emotionally. We are here to help foster their development during this time, while also assisting them to pursue their goals, explore their interests, and refine or discover their skills.
My goal is to support our FMMS students in their journey to attain the knowledge, skills, and life & career characteristics of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate. In order to do this, we will provide rigorous coursework based on the SC state standards, experiences in our related arts classes & extracurriculars, and a focus on collaboration, perseverance, critical thinking, and integrity. We have a variety of clubs, sports teams, and organizations for our Jackets to take part in. I encourage all of our students to make the most of their middle school experience by getting involved.
Parents and the community are vitally important to our school. I look forward to partnering with you in your child’s education, as parent involvement is crucial to our children’s success. Thank you in advance for your support and encouragement.
Please reach out via email or phone if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
Yours in Education,
Dr. Emily H. McQuay
