If you are seeking a diverse setting where all are truly welcomed and valued, Fairview is the place. If you are seeking a school with high academic standards that also offers layers of support to help your child reach their potential, Fairview is the place. If you are seeking a school with caring teachers and administrators, once again, Fairview is the place. When my child is successful, they celebrate with us. When my child struggles, they support with us. I could not ask for a better learning environment that also offers additional opportunities for involvement in music, the arts, and sports to round out the academic experience. What a gift Fairview is to the community.

Stay away from the PTA . The women can be quite evil, cliquesh, gossipy and love to bully anyone who doesn't fit their image. I witnessed their horrible behavior towards another mom and often wondered why this "possibly"mental women are allowed to volunteer in this school. Sad, but very true. Otherwise, the principal Mr. Perez is great. He knows all his kids by name, and I believe really cares about them. The teachers my children had were wonderful. I was very comfortable with them, and was able to bring up any issues of concern. They were always willing to help.

If you have normal testable children - this is a great place. If your children have extreme disabilities - this is a great place. Beware if your child is quirky. They fail the quirky kids all the time.

Fairview is by far the best school I have ever worked at. The administration, secretarial and janitorial staff, and the teachers have been helpful and caring since I first moved here from Michigan in 2007. The students are always fun to talk to, well-mannered and willing to go out of their way to make a teacher feel like he has done a good job. Fairview has been like a second family to me and no other school would be more deserving of an educational grant such as this.

The faculty and staff truly care about the children. The curriculum is innovative and challenging. Fairview offers a wide variety of extra curricular activities. I'm also very pleased that they have open communication with their HS, Niles West, thus completely preparing them for the transition and vigorous workload in HS.

I love Fairview because it produces good students/grades despite the challenge of having such a diverse socio-economic student body (over 70 languages spoken). The school boasts excellent infrastructure, building, park, bus service, food, IT hardware, etc. This over achieving student body is only able to produce because of the supportive teachers and principles at the school. Moreover, the awesome parents that volunteer and appear for school functions establishes a sense of Fairview pride. Yes I have a Fairview sticker on my car and yes, both my daughter and son (graduated) are in advanced/honors classes due to Fairview. Go Fairview!

Fairview School has a diverse student population that cares about learning, developing, and acknowledging academics, social activity and athletics! It is a wonderful school filled with teachers and administrators that care, and students and athletes that care about each other. Success, health, and giving back to the community is what Fairview is all about! Its alumni have leaders that want to truly make a difference when they go onto high school. They are always proud they graduated from Fairview!

A beautiful facility with enthuiastic teachers and inspired leadership. It is amazingly diverse, with kids from all over the world--Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, India, the Middle East, South America, Mexico... It's nice to see all those kids getting along and learning to be comfortable with their differences while enjoying their similarities.

highest standards for each teacher and staff member activites music art band orchestra gifted and talented computers physical education RECESS! small classrooms major field trips for middle school sports teams after school clubs student government I couldn't ask for a better elementary school education for my kids. they are academically, physically, emotionally, socially and I would go as far as saying spiritually enriched at this school. None of the more 'wealthy' northshore or nw burb schools can touch Fairview South when it comes to the personal attention, love and care each and every one of these children get, not to mention riggerous academic standards resulting in some of the very highest standardized test scores in the state. Public school education is alive and well at Fairview South in Skokie, IL!

Fariview South does a wonderful job of teaching children acedemics and life skills. This is very important to me. On top of that, Fairview holds gym class every day and has music, art, computer & library classes at least once per week. Fairview also has wonderful teachers and staff because my daughter loves to go to school and learn!

Both of my boys are happy, healthy, smart Fairview South students! Mrs. Bucur is the best K teacher in the world! She not only wonderful to the kids, but also to the parents. Beginning with the 1st time you meet her. She offers tea bags and tissues to parents with kids first entering K. She is a wonderful, delightful person, and a superb teacher. Go Maria! Thank You for being a great Teacher, Frank, Justin G., Gabby G., Ty, Angela R., and all other students you've made an impact on.

My children have left Fairview very well prepared for high school. This helped make the transition into high school a smooth one. The facilities are beautiful. Fairview also involves the children in the maintenance of the school gardens, which is a unique experience. Staff is highly educated, professional and friendly. I'm very happy my children attended Fairview South.
