For Parents

FAMU Developmental Research School is committed to providing a quality education for students by promoting rigor and innovative strategies for teaching and learning. Our teachers and staff strive to provide your son/daughter with the best education possible to prepare them for college or a career. FAMU DRS understands and believes that parents and guardians are the most powerful influence on a child's success in school. Research shows that a home environment that supports learning is more important to student success than income, education level, or cultural background [Henderson and Mapp 2002]. Parents, guardians, teachers, staff, and community members are members of the DRS family and team. Below you will find some helpful resources so that we can work together to boost student achievement!
Additional information and resources may be found under Departments for Elementary, Middle School, and High School parents and guardians.
