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!
i went here & loved it, it was the best experience for me to grow up in. :) whoo! Class of 2012. :) i graduated 5th grade 2005. :) i miss my teachers from Fair Avenue. :(
I went to this school when i was in Pre School this was the greatest school ever!! i had the very best teacher if you want to send your child to pre school do it at this school the teachers, staff, and parents are involved. My brother and i had the same techers here and we loved her her name is Jeri Warwick. She has left a review here also in 2005.
FAir Avenue is an excellent school. Three generations of my family have attended this prestige school.
I just transfered my 6 year old to Fair Avenue about 2 months ago and i love this school, in two months I am able to see a great deal of diference compared to the neighbor school, teachers are great, principal is great and so is the administration office, I looove this school
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.
Need some diversity. Not impress by the principal at all. I think the school needs a new principal. Some great teachers who truely care.
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:)
This is a great school and great teachers and great kids. The principal is not the nicest lady and the principal's good friend is her supervisior and she is mean too.
I am a parent and I am very pleased with the teachers that have tought both my sons. I am not pleased with the principal. Overall this school is good if you are a parent that is on top of your childs studies.
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!
This is a great school. The teachers have a genuine interest in our kids. I'm very pleased at the quality of education that my kids are receiving.
I don't like this school at all. one of the teacher abuse her power. no respect. I changed my child's school because of her.
I have taught at Fair Avenue for over 10 years now. I have seen how caring and hard working our teachers are. We have high expectations of our students. I think Fair Avenue is such a great school that I even sent my own children there!
This is a great school. Teachers have very high expectations of their students. Principal is very accessible
This is the worst school I have ever had a child in. The principal does not respect parents or welcome our input. I have removed my child from this school.
