This is by far the best private school I could ever hope for! It's a place where children are understood, nurtured, taught values, respect AND encouraged to EXCEL in academics. From the administrative staff to teachers--everyone is approachable, humble and always open to input. This is one of the FIRST things I noticed as a nervous parent touring the campus 3 years ago. I also noticed immediately the vast cultural diversity. I myself am a South Asian parent. It isn't just about being able to dress up in cultural attire on International Day, which is wonderful! My children and I genuinely feel welcomed, respected and have developed a deep sense of belonging to an amazing community of parents, teachers, staff from all walks of life! That, along with personally experiencing how Fairmont's structure, curriculum, standards and teachers have brought out the BEST in my children makes me a very proud FAIRMONT parent. This is the best decision in early education that I could have made for my young children and I drive a long distance from home to make sure they get to be a part of the Fairmont experience!

Fairmont Historic Anaheim Campus is a great school. Our children have been attending there for many years and with every year they continue to thrive academically and socially due to the wonderful guidance, support, and encouragement from the teachers and staff there. It is rare to find a school that is always looking to better serve the needs of the students on a daily basis. The teachers are very talented and caring. They take the time to get to know individual students and help them excel. They do this with such ease and kindness that the students don't feel intimidated. The environment that Fairmont offers is also very conducive to learning. Teachers and staff show respect and kindness to one another as well as to students. Lastly, Fairmont Historic Anaheim instills good work ethics as well as strong character developments. Our students display not only respect and kindness, but also confidence and strength when they compete in sports and academic tournaments. I highly recommend this school to everyone.

The people working at this school are extremely rude and unprofessional. Both at their campuses and the business office. They seem to discriminate based on race and gender. Teachers make rude comments to students based on physical appearance. We have heard employees at the business office using profanity and derogatory terms when speaking of parents and students. I do not recommend this school if you want your child to prosper and have a pleasant school experience.

As the first of all of the Fairmont campuses, we are proud of the part the Historic Anaheim Campus has played in Fairmont s history. That history is a tradition of commitment to excellence in all areas of a child s educational life. Historic Anaheim Campus is home to a 22-year first place winning streak in the Orange County Academic Pentathlon. Each year, our students perform exceptionally well on standardized tests and win many prestigious awards. While academics are the core of our program, music, art, and sports flourish here as well. Our dedicated teachers share a kind, enthusiastic spirit as they tend to the business of educating and caring for their students. Their belief in the promise of these students has created an atmosphere filled with optimism and high expectations. The Historic Anaheim Campus is truly a "home away from home" for our students and for all of us who share in their educational life. From the grace and beauty of our landmark 100 year-old Moreton Bay Fig tree to the 21st century skills our students learn and practice every day, Fairmont s Historic Anaheim Campus has so much to offer the young leaders of tomorrow.

Our experience with junior high at the Fairmont Historic Anaheim Campus continues to be a positive one since last year. We LOVE all the junior high teachers! They are very knowledgeable in the subjects they teach and they know how to teach! The teachers not only focus on the academics, but also on instilling good character, responsibility, and independence. The teachers are current with posting their assignments, projects, tests, homework, and grades on Blackboard and Netclassroom. The teachers are accessible to the students for extra help whether it is before or after school, or during lunch. We have a goldmine of teachers in junior high! They can never retire! We appreciate the assistant director over junior high in keeping the parents apprised via e-mail on a weekly basis. We know how much time it takes to write to the parents and to also compose weekly letters to the students. She makes great effort in reaching out to the students and getting to know them. We definitely made the right choice to attend junior high at Fairmont s Historic Anaheim Campus.

Truly an amazing school if you have a gifted child or if you start early enough! I had 3 kids go through this school and WOW their academics are so far and above any other school. You will have the smartest and the most well prepared kids! If you have a child that needs a bit slower pace or that isn't really smart, this may not be the best school. They are very accelerated. Two of my kids learned so much and had the most amazing teachers. My other child needed a bit more help and he struggled the entire time. Mable has the BEST principal ever. She is just amazing. She deals with issues almost seamlessly. She has a great relationship with the kids and really cares about them.

As our son enters one of the top medical schools in the nation, I have to look back and thank all of those that got him there. If it was not for the foundation that he received at the Mable Campus, I doubt that he would have achieved his dream. A big thank you to all his teachers and the administrators for giving our son the tools needed to be the best that he could be.

Fairmont Private school is the best. Fairmont offers advanced academics. Offers many extra curricular activites other schools cannot offer. The instructors are the best. Very attentitive to all the children. Fairmont also has the best technology a school can offer. The whole school works together as family. Faimont Private school is the only school in Orange County that has been around for more than 50 yrs. I myself went to fairmont and my children attend Fairmont.My whole family, siblings and cousin all attended this school. My 1yr old twin nieces will be attending in a couple years. I truly believe this school is the bestt.

Teachers are enthusiastic, and nice. A lot of homeworks are required. But the programs are great.

I have had the pleasure to teach here my entire career, and I do not feel that there is a school out there that does a better job with each individual student. I am also lucky to teach students who have come up through Fairmont's lower elementary (1st-5th grade). These students have developed such remarkable skills through the years that I feel obligated to take them to the next level. As a teacher, I am allowed the freedom to complete the challenging curriculum in a way that I feel is best. The students do well on standardized tests, but they do not lose class time preparing like other public schools whose scores sometimes mean more than the complete education of the student. The dedication, warmth, and kindness of the teachers, staff, parents, and students make it a place that I will always call home.

Plenty of schools promise a first-rate education, but few deliver like Fairmont. Check out the Report Card on their website fairmontschools.com to see some pretty amazing academic outcomes as well as details about their sports, arts and extracurricular programs. As far as what one reviewer says about an overly academic focus, I'd disagree. I'm a parent at the Citron campus in Anaheim and my child simply thrives in the atmosphere of fun learning that you can't miss if you visit the campus. If you want your child to be so excited about learning that he can't wait to go to school each day, then Fairmont is the place for you!

Fairmont is just wonderful. All my children went there and now they are all going to good colleges. I would highly recommend Fairmont.

Fairmont is a very good school academically. There are some teachers much better than others and you can tell the difference when talking to other parents and hear what happens in other classes. Stay in touch with other parents. They'll tell you who prepares the kids better for the next grade. The only real downside is the cost. It's very expensive, but worth it if you can afford it.

Strong program but little flexability. Fast track for a kid to become a young adult, little room for a kid to be a kid. Too much busywork.

As my firstborn begins his first year of college, I can owe his success to Fairmont. It seems like yesterday that my husband and I dropped him off at the Citron campus which began his journey through elementary school. At Mable, he was given the foundation and life skills to enter and succeed at a top 25 university not just in academics, but in character. His classmates had similar values and I never worried about negative influences. Yes, the curriculum is rigorous, but in a fun and challenging way. These kids become lifelong friends and form an incredible network long after graduation. The curriculum is very well-rounded--offering music, art, science, and sports. Parental involvement can be as little or as much as you choose--no requirements. You can t ask for a better school environment for your children.

I love this school. My daughter has attended since pre-school and is now in first grade. She is well ahead of her public school counterparts. The teachers provide a well-balanced curriculum and I would highly recommend to anyone. The school does have a wide diviersity in cultures and races.

This school is great academically, but i feel personally does not give students enough time to build life skills. Great oppurtunity to epand knowledge, but gives too much work.

The kids get a quality education and are further ahead then the public school kids. The only down side is the cost. The school is primarily asian and indian. There does not appear to be significant parent involvment.

Fairmont is a great school for the academically gifted. The curriculum is quite accelerated and becoming more so every day. Our child graduated from the eighth grade and was more than prepared to enter one of the most competitive preparatory high schools in California. However we do feel that if a child needs a slower paced more nurturing learning atmosphere, Fairmont may not be the place for your family.
