Designated in 2010 as a Priority School, the new Fern Bacon Middle School is on course for change and excellence! Critical to our transformative work has been changing the school culture and climate, creating structures and systems and developing programs and policies to align our work and yield substantial results.
Our instructional model is based on student achievement data, frequent progress monitoring and research-based school-wide practices that provide access for all students. In addition to intervention support and Gifted and Talented classes, Fern Bacon provides many enriching after-school clubs and support programs. One of our hallmark programs is the S.T.A.R. Academy, a Saturday program which provides six weeks of study designed to prepare college bound students for academic success and student empowerment.
We, at Fern Bacon Middle School believe, “As a result of rigorous, high quality first instruction, evidence-based practices, and authentic relationships, students will achieve tremendous academic growth and demonstrate preparedness for college / career pathways.”
Fern Huston Bacon, one of this area’s leading women educators, was a person of many accomplishments. She was not only an excellent administrator and teacher, but quoting from an article in the Sacramento Bee at the time of her retirement in March 1965, “If Fern Bacon had not spent 40 years teaching children and building schools in the Pacific School District, she might have been an accomplished pianist, a registered nurse, a champion skier or even a pretty good cowpoke on a California Ranch”.
Fern Bacon Middle School is a place where real learning will take place. The staff at Fern Bacon is committed to supporting students in a variety of ways to ensure students achieve the highest standard of academic success. Students will have positive experiences and they will feel like they belong. Students will do their part to become invested in their school and to take advantage of the many opportunities Fern Bacon Middle School has to offer.
