It's a good school and some good teachers but some teachers get to involved in students and parents business to much. The secretary is very rude towards the parents she gives to much attitude. Also the secretary feels like if she was principal of the school and try's to do things that don't correspond to her and yells at the students way to much infront of the parents, which to me I feel it's very disrespectful.

To begin with the secretary is very rude. To many absences from the principal and mostly the secretary is just bad (Alicia) she yells at the students way to much like if they were some kind of animals. And has no education or respect towards other parents. Therefore I believe the school as a whole will be better off if the secretary would go elsewhere because she causes to much problems between parents and teachers.

the only reason why I gave Fairhaven 4 stars is because the Secretary is so RUDE , and no matter how much her behavior is brought up to the principal or the OCSD it does not change. She is also very loud to the kids while they are in their lunch break, I have been there when all this takes place there is no need to scream at the kids

My child has really improved the last few years at Fairhaven. There were changes to the staff that helped this school. I would like to thank the teachers who have really improved the schools ranking. It would be nice to see more parents involved as well. One thing the school can improve on is the attitude of the head secretary, and the principal is condecending as well. Keep up the good work Fairhaven!

Teachers work hard to promote student academic growth and learning. There are programs available during and after school to help students learn English

The teachers are both caring and trying very hard. They are led by an excellent principal and office staff. The school is no different than any typical school with students getting into trouble. The school has an excellent amount of resources with a well stocked library and a brand new computer lab with 32 new mac computers.
