I live in Fairview, married someone who went to Fairview and know A LOT of people who went/go to Fairview. Most say they won't send their own kids to Fairview. Most of the school faculty and staff are all related so they only hire someone that they're related to. The teachers don't care about teaching, only socializing with other teachers. I am sending my kids to Parkside elementary and then on to Holly Pond (where I went to school).

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama Reading and Mathematics Test (ARMT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math. The ARMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
