I agree that faculty/administrators can be condescending when addressing problems with students. It definitely causes parents to become defensive or at least question the motives of the faculty/administrators. While it is nice to have your children enrolled in a classroom with a 14 to 1 ratio, it is disheartening to look at the ISAT scores for 2011 (particularly for 5th graders). Test scores two years ago were pretty decent...2011 I can't say that.
We moved to Fisher over a year ago from another small town that would have fed into a larger high school. We chose this community for the school system and have been extremely pleased. All schools have their little issues but this one so far has taken care of them and not ignored them to let them fester. I recommend this school to any family that asks me about it. The faculty have been amazing so far. My daughters are very pleased with their teachers.
We have a great school with lots of community support. Our teachers work towards quality education which shows in our state test scores. Support staff are always thinking of kids first. Our local PIE raises money to buy needed equipment for both the children and the teachers.
