Friendly, enthusiastic staff that truly love their jobs and students. My son is in the third grade and has complained about school since kindergarten. This year he's finally enjoying his class.

My daughter is finally excited about school!! She was bored at her other school (under-performing county). All I kept getting from them was "that's not part of our curriculum". Now my daughter is being challenged and learning is fun!

We just left PTO Curriculum Night at NFE. I am very impressed with the enthusiasm everyone has for teaching our leaders of the future. Very impressed with the Kindergarten Teachers as well. My twin boys are blessed to have Mrs. Mangan and Ms. Knowles as their teachers. I'm sure we will have a great school year!

North Fayette is a great school; however, the FCBOE should review the reasons for the teacher turn over rate. I really believe that more parents would become involve if the same instructors were present each year. Stabilization is the key to a child's future. If instructors would remain, a better foundation/team could be established for improved results in all subject matters.

I love NFE, coming from Dekalb County, this school surpassed my expectations.. My daughter for the first time is attending a Public school and loves it.. They are on target with her reading, and I am updated about her work all the time. Her Teachers in Kindergarten are wonderful and helpful..

I think North Fayette Elementary is a wonderful start for all chidren to begin their educational experience. I feel that there should be more support for those that work, and attend this school. This I feel is lacking a great deal.
