I am very pleased with Fairview. The teachers are very involved in the students lives, plus many of the teachers have their children enrolled there.

I think this school can do better if they get a better game plan for our kids.

My daughter has attended this school for the past 2 years and she loves it. She started in Kindergaten, now entering the 2nd grade. She loves the teachers, they are all so friendly and they do handle and get down to business. She loves to go to school and the kids are nice too.

I've had 3 kids to attend Fairview and have nothing but great things to say about this school. When my oldest first attended a few years ago, I had a few concerns that I addressed with the teacher and also with the administration. the problem was not dealt with, just shipped off to another school so parents to deal with. But since that time, a new administration has been put in place, and are absolutely GREAT. It takes parental involvement along with the teachers to provide our kids with the valuable eduction that they deserve.

This is my son's first year at Fairview and I have nothing but wonderful praises for the Kindergarden teachers and teaching assistants. They have went beyond the call of duty to ensure the transitions into school went smoothly for my son. The small class sizes are wonderful.

Fairview Elementary is a good school due to some of the great teachers that work at the school. My children have been at Fairview for several years and I have been very pleased with their teachers' positive attitudes and concern for their students. I was also pleased with the professionalism of the administration at the school. As far as the afterschool program, there is alot to be desired. There are no real activities but you get what you pay for a 'babysitting service' for $11/hr which is very affordable compared to most afterschool programs in various county schools. This school definately has the potential to be a true 'shining star' with more parental/community involvment and commitment. Parental and community involvement is not an option it is essential to have great community schools.

Fairview Elementary School has a diverse curriculum that adheres to both county and state mandates. At Fairview teachers set high expectations for the students and student achievement is top priority. My children enjoy the enhanced curriculum that Fairview provides and also the extracurricular activities that are provided during afterschool hours such as the Dance Company. The Afterschool Enrichment Program is also great! Students get additional assistance with homework, learn Spanish,Art, and have Music. The administrators at Fairview are caring and take pride in ensuring the success of each individual child by making sure that teachers meet the needs of each individual student. Fairviews parent support is great and the community takes pride in supporting our academic programs and extracurricular activities. It is great having my children who are now second and third graders attend Fairview. They love it and so do I!
