Fitzgerald students are college and career ready
Fitzgerald offers a wide range of options to prepare students for college and careers. We offer a full slate of Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) programs. We also offer on-site career-technical certifications in automotive repair, pharmacy technology and physical therapy. Click the image for a video tour of our STEM programs.
At Fitzgerald Public Schools, we’ve made it a priority to provide our students with innovative technologies to help them be better learners and better prepared for the workplaces of the future. FPS is among the first districts in the area to provide Google Chromebook laptops to every student. By having educational videos and interactive learning material at their fingertips, students can engage with classroom material in new ways. They will learn to be self-motivated in their own education and feel empowered to be curious about the world, ask new questions and seek answers!
Capturing Kids’ Hearts
At Fitzgerald Public Schools, we work hard to reach students at deeper levels. Teachers and administrators recently completed a series of intensive professional development trainings to help strengthen positive relationships with students and learn techniques for helping students in their social, emotional and academic development. Through the “Capturing Kids’ Hearts” initiative, teachers and administrators learned how to better motivate students to learn, minimize negative behaviors and maximize learning through leadership, communication and conflict resolution skills. These trainings will have a huge positive impact on our students as we continually strive to provide them with a top-notch education!
New elementary science and reading curriculum
Fitzgerald elementary students will learn reading and science through a new, cutting-edge curriculum that aligns with Common Core State Standards. The programs take advantage of our one-to-one technology and they get students to solve real-world problems.
