Our Vision

About Fern Bacon Middle School



A New Era of Excellence

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.”

Who is Fern Bacon?
Written by Dorothy Mack and Eleanor Bolton


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”.

Evidence of Our Learning


In early spring 2010 a call to action was made for change at Fern Bacon Middle School. The incoming principal conducted focus groups with students and staff; held department meetings and one-on-one meetings with key staff; and collected qualitative data by surveying students, staff, and parents. Subsequent analysis of student performance data and SQR findings predicated the structure of the program and selected curriculum.
