Academics

Learn about our departments, staff, supply lists, grading policy, and more

In FCPS, we want our students to be ready for the future. We want to give them a wide variety of opportunities and experiences to prepare them for education and employment after high school. We want our students to be productive, responsible members of society who can compete in the global economy.

For us, it's about understanding each student as an individual and respecting their needs. For some of our students, it is about academic rigor and that's where our Advanced Academics program, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement programs are available, at Poe students have the chance to explore academics, athletics, the arts, and more. This is where they begin to open the door to possibilities.
