Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

I've seen 1-2 teachers that actually care about you. The counselor is helpful a lot.

Amount of homework: no rating

Maybe more than a normal school. Some teachers don't check homework. That is the wrong part.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
School doesn't care about bullying or nothing. About 10% of staff actually care about students. That is just sad.

I WOULD GIVE 0 STARS IF I COULD. TEACHERS SWEAR IN CLASS. I REPEAT, SWEAR LIKE BAD WORDS. WTH. TEACHERS ARE UNPROFESSIONAL AND DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU. THEY THINK OF YOU AS JUST A PERSON WHO COMES AND GOES. I'VE NEVER EVER SEEN THIS BAD OF A SCHOOL. NEVER IN MY LIFE.

At first, I was highly skeptical because in the past this school was known to be "bad." NOT ANYMORE! They REALLY improved! This school has changed it's image and policies and principal - even it's name! Yes, I was skeptical but it really has upgraded into a GREAT school. Very big on "Anti-Bullying" which is great. Their girls basketball coach is supportive and fun. The principal is wonderful (love the way he works). Very proactive staff... I have been greatful for the past two years. Thank you!

This school is a very good, full-curriculum Jr. High. It has outlets for students; such as, music (band), Dance Troop, Cheerleading, and Sports. Then, I heard there's other things. You just have to be in the know, or get your student to bring you the flyers home or check in the office as you wait patiently for someone to get a moment to help you. They are very busy with students and day-to-day activities.

J.W. Fair is a great school! Fair has some of the best teachers, and the best advanced math class. 7th Algebra and 8th Geometry are the best in the state. To bad this school have a bad repretation, but its really a great school. Mr.Duran the advance math teacher there is the best! He 'motivates' you to d your homework, work hard, study hard, and get A's! This is one of the best schools. Its a fun school with sports. And I'm pretty sure you're going to get the best 2 years of your life here! - A former student at J.W. Fair Middle School!

This school is awesome. Most of the teachers are great. The teachers are helpful and nice.

I'd have to say that Fair is a great school. There is no way that at Fair that there can be bullying. The teachers are great but maybe a few boring ones but where is there one where teachers aren't? The teachers here care about the students a lot. By the way we have the best Geometry test scores in California(YES!) and one of the best Algebra test scores in the city!All thanks to our great Mr. Duran :]
