2023-2024 Inquiry Question, Strategies and Measures

Our goal is to provide a safe environment for students to confidently engage in their own journey of personal growth, empowering them for a successful future beyond high school.  This inquiry question is directly aligned with the WRSD Powerful Learning Environment (PLE) Framework.  The evidence that has driven our emphasis on this inquiry question has come from data in our accountability pillar; conversations with staff, students, and parents; and data collected throughout the year from classroom learning, professional learning conversations, FMHS professional learning communities, and more.

Our inquiry question is:  How does the FMHS team support students on their personal path of self-discovery in preparation for their successful future beyond high school?

At FMHS, we have determined two key areas to emphasize in order to ensure that the FMHS team is supporting students on their personal path of self-discovery in preparation for their successful future beyond high school.

  1. Enhancing the Sense of Belonging for Everyone at FMHS
  2. Ensuring High Levels of Learning for All Students
