My children attend Fairview but I am ready to enroll them in another school because the parent involvement is sorely lacking as is the students' guidance at home. I feel the school's student population has deteriorated and it shows by the lack of respect for authority, peers,and property. The teaching staff and office personnel are top rate. My complaint is about unruly and disrespectful children who seem to worsen each year. I'm ready for my children to finish their education elsewhere and am sad to say Fairview is not the environment I want for them.
I have two children enrolled in Fairview. I think they have a strong leadership and the teachers are committed to helping your child succeed. The Latchkey program, overseed by Ms. Aurika is fabulous. They only have your child in mind.
My child has almost completed his kindergarten year at Fairview Elementary. Academically, it has been a great experience. His teacher encouraged him to work very hard and I am amazed with his reading, writing and math skills. The principal, teachers and staff are all very friendly, and make it a point to greet the children by name. The school has a strong emphasis on teaching the children to respect each other and themselves. I have seen very little parent involvement. The PTA meetings I attended were small, and overall enrollment seems low. The kindergarten classes are sort of isolated from the rest of the school, so I didn't get a very good feel for the rest of the school yet.
I like Fairview although the play ground is substandard to other schools I've seen. The teaching staff is very dedicated and friendly.
At this school my children have wonderful, experienced teachers, though there is a serious safety problem. My 9 year old is small, and is often a victim of bullying from the same group of children, an issue the principal refuses to address. I was shocked to find that her salary is upwards of $90K a year, while the playground lacks in child entertainment quality!
