J.A. Fair is a good school all & all, it's just that people excep these kids to perform at a private school wrothy level & it's scary. So they tend to struggle. But the staff is great, students are hard workers. Nice job, Mr. Jeremy Owoh.

My son transferred to Fair and is very happy. He came from a very large school. He likes the atmosphere at the school. It is small, everyone seems to know everyone, and the teachers care about the students.
