Letter from Dr. Theresa R. Alban

Dear Parents and Community Members:

Welcome to Frederick County Public Schools. Please know that our Board of Education members, staff, and I are delighted to have you join the FCPS family. Our district provides a high quality education to nearly 44,000 students in 67 schools from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Our students experience many opportunities to grow and learn in a safe, nurturing, and academically challenging environment. They are guided and encouraged by caring, well-prepared teachers, specialists, support staff, and administrators who are champions for excellence for themselves and their students. Students are provided a well-rounded curriculum in reading, math, science, social studies, writing, music, art, physical education, and world languages and have many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities.

Through hard work and commitment to excellence, our students consistently outperform their peers statewide and nationally on multiple measures of academic success related to college and career readiness. Our students have achieved recognition in athletics, robotics, engineering, and poetry, as well as in visual arts, music, and other performing arts. You can learn about their accomplishments in a monthly video called FCPS Proud.

The support of our community and business partners continues to ensure that FCPS is a top school system in Maryland and, indeed, our nation. To learn more about public education in Frederick County, please visit

I look forward to working with you in continuing to realize excellence in education for our students!
