My son started preschool a few weeks ago and I am very excited. He is so happy with his teachers and classmates. Teachers are so nice and responsible. A big thank you to the teachers of preschool! :)

The SAS program at this school is incredible. My daughter is learning basic algebra in the 5th grade. Her 5th grade SAS mathematics curriculum has been just about equivalent to that of a local private school's 7th grade math (which a family member of ours attends). My daughter has been in class with the same group of children since kindergarten and they are all very driven & bright, but I can only attest to the SAS program.

I love Fair! My siblings and i went to fair i graduated in 1997 and now my three kids are attending fair. Even one of my T.A's in third grade was my daughters first grade teacher!! I was very happy to see her again after so many years. I can totally recommend Fair Avenue its a great school and i love that they are the only school with dictation in Kindergarten. They are really getting the kids ready and pushing them so they can succeed at a young age!

Communication is key at Fair Avenue and we try our best to get that across to parents. We need to work together to make every child's year a success! It's unfortunate this parent had problems with her child's teacher. Overall, I found the parents, staff, and administrators kind and willing to work with you. It doesn't get better than that!

I am really happy with the teachers at this school. They are caring and only want the best for the kids, you can tell. Both my children have attended Fair and now are in private schools. There teachers have noticed how well prepared they are and I owe to their elementary years. I've noticed for the last couple of years though that the teachers seem a lot more stressed out. I'm aware that the school district is implementing a lot of academic rigor to its schools. Fair Avenue has always had hard working treachers working there...I hope none of them leave due to the districts demands. They are really what makes the school outstanding.

I am very much satisfied with the quality of education my children are receiving from this school. The teachers are great. They are very much concerned about the studies of the students. I am very well pleased with the way Ms. Shroeder handles the gifted class. My son is identified as gifted by LAUSD and I'm very thankful that he's going to finish elementary with good foundation.

I agree that the school needs some diversity of opinion. The teachers are fine educators that care about every child. We do well on tests because the quality of instruction is very high.

This School is Great. I Have 2 Kids and the teachers are wonderful, I also have to say the staff in the office are great. Any questions you have they go out of the way to make sure you get all the help you need for your child. It takes team work. Teachers can't do it alone so parent's let help, it makes a difference. Letty:)

I have 6 children that have gone to fair avenue and one more that is at fair now. I have been very pleased with the staff at fair avenue . I thank the teachers for being a big part of my children's life , and helping me become a better parent. Mr balbuena are music teacher he is great . are after school programs are good to.But mainly the teachers and office staff are the one that really take the time to listen and show the kids the right way and to teach them what they need to learn my son just graduated 5th grade and he was in gifted classes with ms Schroeder he begged me to change his class because when the work seemed hard he just wanted to walk away , and you cant teach your child to walk away when things get hard the need to stay.

I have been teaching at Fair Ave. for quite a long time. It has come a long way. The teachers are extremely dedicated to their students and are always striving for excellence. The teachers have high expectations and work diligently to teach a population that most other schools would otherwise give up on or make excuses for. Compared to similar schools in the area, Fair is doing a fantastic job!

The teachers seem weary, not up to the challenge of the kids. The setting is positively horrendous and does not seem to engender any kind of freedom with respect to physical exertion or natural study. The headstart program associated with the school seems to have its heart in the right place and the teachers there are enthusiastic.

Uncaring, unqualified staff, graffiti and broken glass on grounds, unsafe environment. We pulled our child out of Fair Avenue and now pay to have him in a private school.
