My son has been in Fickett Elementary since Pre-K and will be attending 1st grade this year!! I'm so excited about the new school year!! The teachers and staff are just great! It feels good to walk in my son's school and the office staff knows me by my name. I am a very active parent in the school. Even though I no olonger live in the school zone, I drive him to school and pick him up faithfully.

This is my sons second year attending Fickett. The communication between the parents and the teachers is great. I love it how parents/family members can come volunteer whenever they have free time. The open door policy @ Fickett is great! And I would like to thank Dr. Dorsey for allowing that policy! I would like to say keep up the good work to all the teachers, staff, volunteers and parents! I look forward to another excellent year @ Fickett!

Fickett Elementary is an outstanding school that believes in the academic excellence of our children. They believe in the abilities and capabilities of their students and encourage them to strive for excellence and to acheive their goals. Dr.Dorsey governs his school with humility and reverence and he always keeps the needs of the children at the forefront and as a parent of this school I truly appreciate that. Outstanding work all teachers, staff and volunteers! I look forward to a prosperous year!

My son has attended Fickett for three school years. The communication between myself and his teachers has been great. The school offers many programs and activities that promote student learning and develop student interest. Most of the students in his class have been there since Kindergarten which shows stability within the community. The priority is placed on learning from the first day to the last day of shcool. The teachers, staff, and administration handle all situations promptly. My son transferred to Fickett from a private school. I have no complaints and have been happy with the services provided for three years.

R.N. Fickett Elementary is a hidden gem! My daughter transferred to Fickett this school year and it has been a wonderful transition. The teachers are certainly dedicated to the success of all the children. I am fortunate to have the flexibility to visit the school at various times of the day and I have always witnessed a great learning environment for all the children. The principal, Mr. Dorsey is a great male role model and wonderful leader. He is always walking the halls and visiting the classes unannounced. I am sure this keeps the students and staff motivated to do their very best at all times. When there are discipline problems, they are dealt with and 'life goes on'. I am soo happy we are apart of the Fickett family and my child is again excited about going to school everyday!!!!

i'm between above average and excellent, always room for improvements...my daughter attended this school from kindergarten to half of 3rd grade and was only moved to another school (county school) b/c we moved out of city limits (ughhh had i KNOWN!)... she was taught well, expectations were clear and not difficult to achieve, she did well on the CRCT, was on the principals honor roll 3 years and recognized for exceptional performance several times... i remember her teachers names and that says a lot...and they definitely knew my name... from the coach to the principle to the 'lunch lady', they involve themselves with the students and all persons involved. Dr. Barber was principal thru May 07 and he was wonderful...they always kept me informed, never a question of her performance and expectations...wish she was back in this school so bad...

There is no recognition of honor roll students. No assembly, certificate, sticker, nothing. I find this not only discouraging to the honor students but the other students have no means of being motivated to excell. The teachers are recognized more than the students.

The teacher are wonderful. I like the fact that they are thinking out side the box. You can always get a time with the Principal or his staff to discuss ideas or concerns. The test scores show that the kids are learning.

I love fickett. My daughter graduated from there and my son attends now. The teachers are wonderful. The faculty is great. They are doing great things academically to broaden the minds of our young people. Every year they are doing better and better with thier test scores and the motivation from the principal helps them even more. I am very proud to say that I have ties to R.N. Fickett Elementary.

I believe that R.N. Fickett is a very good school. The Principle as well as the faculty and staff or more than helpful, they go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure every child at Fickett is a number one priority. Since, the current Principle has taken over I see an improvement in the children's self esteem and study habits. I am so proud to have a child at this school.
