• Fanning Middle School is located in the Tower Grove South Neighborhood in South Saint Louis City.  Fanning has been educating children in the Tower Grove South Benton Park West, Dutchtown, Bevo, and other neighborhoods of south Saint Louis since 1905.  Our school is named in honor of Rose Fanning, a Saint Louis educational pioneer.  Rose Fanning dedicated her life to helping children and families in need at the end of the 19th Century through the beginning of the 20th Century.  Fanning has a diverse population of learners.  At Fanning, we celebrate our diversity.  As Falcons we do not just tolerate our differences, but we strive to understand each other's cultures and communities.
