At Frank McCourt High School (FMHS), we prepare our students to be articulate and effective communicators in every medium. In particular, we will develop students' communication skills through their writing, presentations, classroom discussions and peer dialogue. In developing these skills, students will also sharpen their critical and analytical thinking. Every student will graduate from Frank McCourt High School armed with the curiosity and intellect of a true life-long learner. We are committed to helping our students become engaged citizens and thoughtful civic leaders who can communicate their vision with clarity and eloquence.
