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.
its a very nice clean facililty, with nice faculty members and students. [:
Our school is run by dedicated professionals that help our children embrace their cultures, respect each other, and get a top-notch education.
Fairview is a family school. As soon as you walk through the front door you can feel the happy kids the smiling teachers. You are always greeted with a smile and what ever the problem you may have their is always someone right there to help you with it.
I'm very impressed with Fairview South My Daughter Just Started & She Loves To Go To School. I Highly Recommend to see the area & the park thats next to the school.
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.
This is a very good school! The teachers are nice and they have very authorized and organized classrooms! It is not the greatest but one of the best!
Great school, my daughter goes to this school, I cannot say enough about it, teachers are great, principle is nice, all the staff is so nice and helpful. My daughter is doing great here.
Fairview is a great school. Very high academic standards as well as great art, music and other extra curriculum activities. All teachers are excellent.
