Mission Statement

  • Fairhope Middle School’s motto is, “Experience the Excellence.” This educational philosophy is the driving force for all we do. Our pursuit of excellence sets the expectation that our students will indeed do their best in every aspect of their lives. With the expectation of excellence, we believe in empowering all students to achieve their full potential. This means helping them become intellectual, responsible, ethical individuals who are well-prepared to meet the challenges and responsibilities of life.

    The mission of Fairhope Middle School is to: 

    • Empower bold and honorable life-long
    • learners who strive for excellence,
    • serve others, and find success.

    The staff and faculty of Fairhope Middle School believe that the high expectations teachers have for students support learning as our central purpose. The educational climate must be safe and orderly to ensure learning for all students. The faculty should equip students with the skills needed to be successful in their next level of schooling. This includes the use of a variety of resources such as technology and the media. Commitment from students, teachers, families, and the community is an essential part of each student’s educational success.


BCBE Safety Message

  • Protecting our students, teachers, and employees is my priority. The Baldwin County Public School System has partnered with the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office, the Baldwin County Commission, and our municipal law enforcement agencies so that ALL our school campuses have a dedicated School Resource Officer each school day. 

    As part of our school system's multi-million dollar commitment to safety, a "buzz in"- video identification check is available on each campus. Everyone must follow stated safety procedures. 

    Of note, just because you hear "lockdown" does not necessarily mean there is an emergency on campus. We are sometimes alerted by law enforcement of a concern in the community that prompts us to implement our safety plan. 

    Of supreme importance: if you hear something, say something- not on social media- but report immediately to law enforcement, a teacher or school administrator all concerns. School administrators and law enforcement will sort out the validity. Together, we form a partnership that keeps our schools safe. Thank you for being a partner!
