About Us

Fisher Magnet Upper Academy, which serves students in 5th to 8th grades, offers real-world educational experiences and individualized attention by a staff that truly considers itself a team. Fisher’s educational philosophy is centered on engaging the “whole child” and all the diverse learning styles that are possible. In addition to Fisher’s rigorous curriculum, which is infused with technology on a daily basis and incorporates iPads and Netbooks, every student has an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) to target and improve their academic achievement. The school, located on the east side in one of the district’s newest buildings, was constructed in 2003 and is tailored to suit 21st Century learning. The building features a sweeping glass-encased atrium, a competition gymnasium, acoustically-geared music rooms, a media center, and a training facility. The bright hallways are dotted with dozens of signs that command attention to success, evoking a collegiate feel.
