This is a really great school. I have one child here and one who attended this school and is now in middle school. I have nothing but good things to say about Fairlands. It is a true community where everybody cares about the kids. The teachers are amazing. The leadership is great. Even the PTA is very active and involved. The emphasis on technology is better than any other elementary school I have seen.

Fairlands really is a community of character. Apart from good teachers and school administration, the values that students inherit is great. Both my kids attend Fairlands and we all like the school so much that we are not able to move out of this community to buy a house elsewhere.

Fairlands was the best school. All of the teacher are really amazing. I have been there since kindergarden and loved it. I will miss all of the fun activities they planned since they won't have them in middle school.

Love this school. Both my kids attend this school and I've been extremely happy. The quality of teachers in unsurpassed. Mrs. Michels shows great leadership. She is literally everywhere doing everything from directing traffic to chatting to teachers all while running the school. The biggest thing for me is that both my kids learn a lot, are challenged to go the next level and look forward to school every day. What more can you ask for in a school?

I'm a new teacher here and I just have to say that this school is fantastic! The teachers and administrator really care about the kids...it's not just lip service here. Even with the cuts in budget this school is supporting all students and providing a well rounded education that inspires these young minds.

My son has been at Fairlands School for four years now and will be Graduating to middle School, these have been happy years. PTA is excellent and Parent involvement is excellent. Its like one big Family since all the Families live in the same Neighborhood. Past two years the API scores have gone up and Fairlands is ranked 2nd in Pleasanton. School does lot of Extra Activities based on lot of thinks. Kids love to go to Science lab.This year the fifth Grader's had Colonial Day Celebration. Go Green club is running fully flourished. I would recommend this School to any Parent who is looking for all round education for their child or children.

Both my children have attended this school and have loved it every year. They have gotten lots of help and encouragement from dedicated teachers. The PTA and overall parent population put lots of work into making it a true community school with a friendly atmosphere. It's a really great school.

PTA is excellent in Fairlands School and the new Principal is doing everything she can to assure safety for traffic. Their Teachers are excellent, & they just got some new Teachers who look promising to the school. The children come from lot of diversed families which is good. Lot of after school activities. Math Olympiad, DI, Science Spectrum. I would recommend this school to any parents who want an All Rounded education for their Children.

It comes from everything from the participation of the principal assisting in traffic direction at pickup time. My 7 year old son has been to about 4 schools in his lifetime because of my work. Luckily, we have settled for good and have gotten so lucky to be enrolled in such an outstanding school!
