I went to this school back in the 1980's and had generally good times there, I feel like they did a great job, especially with helping those that needed extra help. Since I've been there, the school has expanded, updated, and gone through many changes... I live back in the neighborhood now and am happy to see they have shown consistency over the years and are still one of the best elementary schools in the NW suburbs. Great school!
Everyone is really nice at Fairview. My son is in his second year, and the teachers are really great! Along with the staff and the PTA. I also attended this school when I was younger and it's nice to have my son in a familiar place. He enjoys this school very much!
We are fairly new to Fairview and the district, we feel it is o.k. We do have a few issues. The way math is taught in this district. It is very confusing to a child & parents who learned the 'old fashioned' way. The amount of homework is outrageous 4-5 hours of homework a night...for lower level grades.
I am going to be very simple, short and clear. Both of my children are in Fairview, and if it wasn't for Fairview and its staff,I assure you that my kids would be going to a private school. The only thing I have to say about Fairview is that it's a little overcrowded, and that's due to school district 54 that could use the old Twinbrook school for the Kindergarten and first graders and relieve Fairview from them and absorb more of the older children.
