The Mission of Fort

The mission of Fort Middle School is to promote the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of our students in a safe, challenging environment so that they become confident, self-disciplined, productive members of a global society.

School History


Fort Junior High School was fully accredited in 1978.  The school was constructed to serve the educational needs of students in northeastern Muscogee County.  The school was awarded the School of Excellence Award in 1985.  In 1992, Fort officially moved from a junior high to a middle school concept.  The school was named in memory of T. Hicks Fort.  Mr. Fort was judge of the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit and was a member of the Board of Education from 1910 until 1941, serving as the chairman from 1924 until 1941.  Fort Middle School is located at 2900 Woodruff Farm Road, on property donated to the school district by the T Hicks Fort family.
