Foothills Community School (FCS) has several spots open for the 2019-2020 school year.

If you are new to the area or missed the application deadline, this is your chance to sign up for a nationally-recognized program that supports all learners.



FCS is an innovative place to learn and an option for all sixth- to eighth-grade students in McDowell County Schools. FCS is located at West McDowell Middle School.

Transportation is available for students residing in the districts.

FCS integrates subjects through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) by focusing on the local community through service learning and career projects and programs.

Students interested in playing sports while in middle school, can play at either East or West middle. Other extracurricular opportunities include Science Olympiad, Lego Robotics, gaming clubs, debate teams and much more.

For more information, contact Melanie Shaver, melanie.shaver@mcdowell.k12.nc.us or by phone at 828-652-3390.
