My families will relocate to Houston area in the summer. We had a 6th grader. After reading threads in this forum, we are thinking Sugar Land would be the best place to live due to great public school. We'd like to rent a house for the first year since we did not have any idea about real estate in Sugar Land area. Fort settlement and First Colony are my preferred choices. Does anyone have personal experience with these two schools? Any comments would be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot!

I have a sister that attends FCMS as a 7th grader, one that will be attending next year and I attended the school myself (graduated 8th grade in '98). It's a fine school and my time there (First Colony MS) was one of the best times of my life.

I'm not sure about FSMS as that was built, I believe while was at Clements, but I would imagine, as far as academic rigors, it's about the same, and both schools to the best of my knowledge feed into CHS.

Both are excellent schools. Keep in mind that most of the wealthiest areas of Sugar Land are zoned to FSMS, so if you are not able to "keep up with the Joneses" your kids may blend more comfortably info FCMS which is more economically diverse (middle class-upper middle class).

Fort Settlement and Sartartia MS - have a lot of students with parents that will push them to the limits on academics. Lots of good teachers for the Gifted & Talented Students and over achievers.
FCMS - is also very good academically, but I would say just below FSMS.

like a previous poster mentioned Sartartia MS in New Territory

here is the breakdown via HAR.com
Sartartia Middle - rating and statistics - - HAR.com
First Colony Middle - rating and statistics - - HAR.com
Fort Settlement Middle - rating and statistics - - HAR.com

We just moved to Sugar Land last summer. We chose Fort Settlement Middle school for our 7th grader. It is a great school. It has a strong academic program and great teachers...... but most important- the student body is great. They are studious and well-mannnered.
