    Principal's Message

    September 2017

    On behalf of our extraordinary faculty and students, I welcome you to Robert E. Fitch High School and thank you for visiting our website. I also want to welcome the Class of 2021 to FHS and I know that your four years here will be a rewarding experience.

    Our school is about building a rigorous and relevant academic tradition with teaching for understanding as its foundation, which will prepare FHS students for the 21st Century. FHS operates under an A/B block schedule which includes an advisory and CTL time. In addition, FHS offers intervention classes in math and English to assist students having difficulty mastering the skills and concepts. Our slogan, ACHIEVE MORE, BELIEVE MORE, and CARE MORE exemplifies our commitment to high expectations, the belief that we all can accomplish great things, and that we truly care about each other. 

    FHS has extensive Advanced Placement ( AP ) , International Baccalaureate ( IB ), and UCONN ECE courses, giving students multiple opportunities to pursue advanced studies.

    In addition, FHS has outstanding visual and performing arts programs along with many co-curricular activities that strengthen the connection between FHS and the students. Our athletic programs offer a variety of sports giving FHS students opportunities to compete at the freshman, junior varsity, and varsity levels. Visit our website to view the myriad programs available to FHS students.

    As Principal, I am proud to work with outstanding teachers and staff who work hard at delivering the best instruction possible to FHS students each and every day. Additionally, working with the students at FHS is an extremely wonderful and rewarding experience.

    Yours truly,

    Joseph A. Arcarese
