F-M High School

At Fayetteville-Manlius High School, we strive to help our students become effective communicators, global learners, critical thinkers and socially responsible citizens. The high school program focuses on preparing students for higher education.

  • Size: 1,370 students in grades 9-12
  • Senior class: 373
  • Staff: 120 faculty members
  • Accreditation: New York State Board of Regents


    A student is assigned to a counselor upon entering ninth grade and remains with that counselor throughout high school. In addition to working with students in one-to-one and group settings, the counselors educate students through the F-M Guidance Curriculum. Students meet with their counselors in a series of grade-level seminars throughout the year. Post-secondary school planning and introduction to Career Center resources are important aspects of this program.
