San Fernando Middle School Reviews
San Fernando Institute for Applied (SFiAM) is a pilot school on the same campus as San Fernando Middle School. They are partnered with YPI, a non-profit organization that brings in tons of computer technology and additional resources for students and their families. SFiAM only takes about 400 students and are all technology based. This smaller school has truly changed the culture of the campus for the better. SFiAM prepares students for the 21st Century. There is always a waiting-list, but it is worth trying to get your child into this fabulous new school. SFiAM works with San Fernando Middle School to try and change the climate as a whole. Enroll early!
SFMS is a great school! I chose to send my children to our "Home" school rather than send them to a so called "better school" in granada/chatsworth. The education they are receiving is excellent & its unfortunate the school gets a bad rap from individuals who have never stepped foot on campus. Teachers are awesome, welcoming & work closely with parents. They are always willing to give extra help when needed. The campus is beautiful & my kids are proud to be a Falcon!
