I am a 2nd grade student and I love my school . the teachers are super nice !!! my teacher is Mrs. young and I love her !!! I was super happy when I came to this school . the teachers always make work fun I am an A+ student . I also love the hot lunch .
Great school for my daughter and son. The teachers are very nice and polite. The system is good. If I go back to Fremont I put my kids in fame again .. it is the best choice for me.
I'm proud parent, of FAME chartered school's student. Really nice environment. A diverse culture, good study, nice and totally safe environment. For us its great school, if I compare ILM academy , a private school with $400+ / month fee.
As a parent, I'm happy that my son is learning Arabic, and I would like this school to continue after fixing previous issues it had in the past. I can see some of the criticism is purely based on racist grounds, and this is the only reason this person wants to shut down this unique school in the bay area.
Coming to the FAME was the biggest mistake my family made. We were told the school would teach our children strong cultural values and teach them to read Arabic. This was a lie at best. The school is an organizational mess. The is a huge disconnect between the principals and the teachers. No one seems to agree with the other and our children are suffering and losing out on a sound education. I won't be taking my children back to this school regardless of it being shut-down or not.
The school needs fixing in terms of better teachers and a proper structure and I'm sure with the hire of qualified teachers, its an attainable goal, but the people to blame are not at the schools but at the district office. The only reason I decided to discontinue working with FAME is because of the unprofessionalism of the HR department. They are the department to go for help as an employee, but the person in charge is never available. You call, her voicemail box is full, you email her, she never replies. She seemed totally unprofessional, incompetent and full of lame excuses.
The high school Arabic program needs to be scrutinized by higher authorities. To be more specific, Nahil Iriqat needs to be TERMINATED from the school - never have i seen such an individual with poor rude etc personage. Action will be takin against this woman
Shame shame shame on FAME. Mr. Abdella you should be ASHAMED of your behavior. What kind of principal goes around and does this kind of nonsense. I am beyond disbelief.
Whatever happen in the higher level has got nothing to do with the quality of education and teachers. For those whom complain too much, I say, why don't you try and live in a different country; Afghan, Pakistan, Ethiopia etc and see what is their school like and what type of education will your children get! The parents involvement are more into the mess of "What is happening" to the CEO/owner/ whoever rather than what is going on in the classroom and how can we make it better. My 2 children attended that school and they are very happy. Happy with their friends, teachers and environment. I enjoy learning as they bring home their schoolwork. Their teachers are great; Mr Tang, Ms Austin, Mrs Norlander are the best! They make a lot of difference to learning. Diversity in that school is phenomena nothing I 've seen anywhere else. Now, we are living outside of the states and I wish they have a school just like that here!
This school has 13 cited violations from ACOE. It's charter is being threatened to shut down. If your thinking about putting your child here, you should have a back up plan.
I love this school. The teachers and staff are so kind and caring, and it feels like an extended family. The school is very unique and diverse. Children enjoy learning their native language, and seeing people from many cultures. This school really celebrates diversity. It is a very safe environment and a great alternative to have!
I would highly recommend any prospective parent to google the school name FAME CHARTER SCHOOL and add BLOG. This is how you will really get a clue of what is happening at this school.
I love this school. It has been a second home to my 3 children. It is safe, carng and feels like a community-a family. I cant even imagine taking my children elsewhere.
I transferred out of this school because we thought it would be better. But it turns out that it wasnt. In fame the teachers actually care for you and teach you until you understand it. Rather in public schools they just put the problems up and expect you to do it without even teaching. Which makes the student not care, and it causes the class to get loud. but in fame the teachers MAKE sure the classroom is quiet when its time to do the work. and its has an A+ SAFE ENVIOREMENT im telling you guys!....FAME WAS MY SECOND HOME... There is no drugs, pure pressure, gangs,weapons, back stabers, fights, and dating. Everyone in this school is more than a big family raher than a bunch of student. Everyone looks out and cares for one other. I now go to Kennedy High School and I regret every day.
I am a proud parent of Fame and feel very happy and safe about sending my child. There are always if's and but's everywhere in the world no one is perfect, but as far as the safety is concern this is the place for kids FAME.
It's okay, but some students are in the behavior of pushing, that needs to be improved immediatley.
I am impressed with the methods of teaching, but disappointed with the behavior of some students.
I am a proud parent of three children at FAME. I think the best thing about the school is what you do NOT find there, rather than what you do find. You do NOT find violence, drugs, or uncontrollable situations. You do not find mean spirited teachers. You do not find staff blaming children for problems--rather the staff is supportive and really care about how my children are doing overall. And I love the community feel, you really feel like you are part of something and not a number or a name on an attendance sheet. I highly recommend this school and would not send my kids anywhere else.
I am a proud FAME parent! Although the academic portion of it needs room for improvement! The environment is safe and teachers and pricipals are easily approchable. I hope to see extra ciruclum afterschool activities and improvement in the academic area.
I have been very happy with the FAME IS program. I really wish I did it sooner instead of a R-4 method due to access to curriculums are better with FAME. The staff is will ing to help us with special education needs better than a traditional school district. Response is a bit delayed and it takes much longer to provide a support than a traditional school but atleast they are willing to do it.
