Cultivating innovation, achievement and passion through a learner centered environment

Message From the Principal
Welcome back Wildcats! It is already shaping up to be an exciting semester with next year's registration, state testing and graduation already in sight. 

Over the years, Fruita Monument has developed a culture of high expectations. As a result, our students achieved the highest composite SAT (1021) and PSAT scores of the four major high schools in our valley and a graduation rate of 88.9%. Our test scores and graduation rate both exceed the state the state (78.9%) and district (79.9%) rates.  Our staff remain committed to assisting students in completing school and moving on to the next phase of their lives. Our goal is for every student to find their passion that leads them to a successful career pathway.  The American Diploma Project research concludes that, “The needs of the workplace are increasingly indistinguishable from the knowledge and skills needed for college success.”  So whether a student chooses to pursue a job in the workforce after high school graduation, or chooses to go on to higher education, it is critical that all of our students develop the 21
st Century knowledge and skills that will lead to success as adults.  

Registration is for 2019-20 is just around the corner
! Please guide your student to choose a rigorous schedule.  Students who took the minimum graduation course load averaged a standardized test score much lower than students who enrolled in a more challenging course load to prepare them for college. A rigorous course of study pays off! AP Credits Offer Multiple Benefits

FMHS offers many courses geared toward preparing our students for college. Last year, more 250 students enrolled in college level courses and programs such as Ascent, Early Scholars, High School Scholars, Technical Scholars, and College Developmental Courses. Through these programs, our students earned 1,614 college credit hours valued at $153,961.30 in college tuition. Our culture of high expectations and a rigorous course of study continues to lead the district as our students earned 650 more college credits than any other program in the district.

If you have questions about any of the programs mentioned please contact the counseling office at 254-6600.

Todd McClaskey, Principal
