I went to this school from kindergarten to 5th grade and I have to say it was the best school I've attended yet. I will always remember the memories of my childhood at this school.

Fierke is like a big family. Everyone knows and likes each other. The parents and teachers are very close and connected. The kids are so happy to come to school and they love the teachers. The school has many parent volunteers. Even the crossing guards are part of our family. The most important thing is that the children feel so happy and safe at Fierke school. Many of the parents also attended Fierke when they were children!

The school and parents work together to provide the best situations and opportunities for the children. It is important for schools to hear their commuinties voices and at Fierke Education Center they do.

Both my husband & I attended private schools - Kindergarten through High School. We were a little nervous about sending our child to a public school. We have very pleased with the teachers, staff, administration and other parents at Fierke. A great focus on academics but still make learning fun and, so far, not stressful for both the child and parent.

Overall, my wife and I are very pleased with the progress of our child. Our child has been enrolled in this school for two years and there are two things we have noticed Leadership and Parental involvement. Here the parents are told what is expected from there child. Also at this school, my child has received more hands on instruction then in the other district. Extracurricular activities such as sports at this school are very poor and could use improvement. This would help increase School pride which lacks among the students . Inconclusion, the school is clean and the Principal is the boss which is important. As I like to say the Children and Parents are not running the asylum.
