This school epitomises the poor examples that were shown in Waiting for Superman. I am sure the teachers would be excellent if given the guidance and support from an excellent leader who would be a champion for the children. It is not the children's fault of the situation that they were born into. And why do they have to put their heads down at lunch time? It seems like the practices they propagate at prisons! Try fund raising!

I am a teacher there and know from first hand experience the dedication and commitment each teacher has in teaching this high poverty population. We strive daily to find creative and researched ways to reach these children and help them become successful members of our society. I have one child who does not live near to Fairview, but is driven to school each day by his parents. This school was recommended to them because of Fairview's academic excellence and high diversified population.

Fairview is dedicated to teaching those children who need extra support and care and is committed to excellent education for all.

Unfortunately, the comment of September 26 is accurate. I worked as a teachers' aid there last year. The school is poorly managed, many of the teachers are either burnt out or badly inexperienced (with a few exceptions), the principal is a bully who does not communicate well with her staff and squelches creativity in her students, the curricula are boring, the students' needs are rarley met, and the discipline policies are thoroughly negative and completely ineffective. Given that this is one of the poorest neighborhoods in the Denver area, the future for most of the students at Fairview Elementary looks bleak and the school does little to rectify that.

This school has some of the worst teachers and students I've ever encountered. I would never recommend this school to my worst enemy.
