Welcome to Fischer

  • Message from the Principal, Dr. Imee Almazan:
    Thank you for visiting our school’s website. My name Dr. Imee Almazan and I am privileged to serve as the principal of Fischer Middle School of Business and Communications, a New Tech Network and Verizon Innovative Learning School. As part of New Tech Network, and in conjunction with Verizon Innovative Learning Schools, we encourage students to become creators and producers of knowledge using technology to enhance communication, collaboration, and critical thinking in the classroom and beyond. Every student who attends Fischer receives an i-Pad (with a 5-gigabyte data plan) that they can take to and from school. If you are looking for an innovative, diverse, college-going learning environment for your middle school aged child, then you have found the right school. We are a dedicated community with a shared purpose to empower our students to succeed. Call our office at 408-928-7500 to schedule a school tour.
