Our family has spent nearly 14 wonderful years in schools throughout the FPS district ranging from early intervention programs on up to the middle school level.  We currently have two children in the district. Our oldest has been attending special education programs/classes since he was just six months of age. He will be starting his final year at East Middle School this fall as an eighth grader. Our soon-to-be fifth grader will be starting her final year at Hillside Elementary. We cannot say enough about the educators and staff in the FPS district. Our family has benefited tremendously by dedicated teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, therapists, social workers, office staff, etc. The list could easily go on and on.  Like most parents, each year I hope and pray for teachers who will nurture, challenge and support my children in order for them to reach their best potential. In all the years we have been in the district, I have not been disappointed thanks to the phenomenal teachers and staff. This community has become our extended family which is why we will continue to raise our children here. Our youngest recently turned six months old. We are looking forward to many great years ahead full of learning, cherished memories, and long-lasting friendships.
