Stay current with Our School

Our Principal

Todd Hindman


Experience has taught me that having a strong relationship and partnership with parents and students is vital to the success of a school.  In an effort to bolster our parent volunteer efforts we will be asking parents to identify ways they will be able to support the school, at school, on field trips, or even in the comfort of your own home.  I am looking forward to meeting and working with you, so that we can build upon the success that Fireweed Academy has enjoyed.    Together, we will continue to offer a unique academic experience for our students, while providing parents with a great choice for their child’s education.
