Farnsworth Middle School Activities

Academics are our core mission, but school is more than just classes. At Farnsworth we offer students numerous co-curricular activities. These give students a chance to get involved, pursue personal interests, participate in team sports, or apply their academic skills in new ways.

Due to the pandemic, in-person activities are temporarily suspended. Panther Press will continue virtually, and our other activities will be back when conditions make them safe again.
