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.
Absolutely THE BEST preschool and elementary education you could provide your child.
Fairmont offers something for everybody: advanced curriculum, sports, extra curricular activities, before and after school care, help for struggling students, and much, much more!
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.
Excellent Faculty and leadership. Children are prepared to succeed in future education.
Strong academic, qualified teachers, extra curriculum classes and enrichemnt classes offered
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.
We have 2 children in this school, and are very happy with the education and programs.
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.
