Fairview South is an awesome school... I love my daughter going there! She loves her class and her teachers!
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.
Both my twins attend the school and everything is great, this is a wonderful school and a wonderful community.
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.
WE love the school because we have great caring teachers, great students and great supportive parents!! Just a wonderful school with programs for everyone!! Oh, my son also loves the playground there!! :))
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.
They are soooo responsive to student needs. The teachers are just wonderful!
Establishing a life-long love of learning in a child is the true test of a high quality education and my kids love to learn and Fairview South has encouraged that in every aspect of their education!
Fairview has a great facility nice and clean. The teachers are knowledgeable. They have excellent program to help kids learn their best.
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 is a great school and I love the fact that is goes from kindergarten through 8th grade. Great Faculty and Administration. My daughter loved going there and has a lot of great memories.
Accomplished teachers and strong leaders strive to give the students of Fairview the best education possible. Each year we are more impressed!
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!
It is a diverse school where everyone feels welcome and no one is excluded from anything. The Parents, Teachers, Staff and Administration are the best!!
Just the warmest teachers and staff a parent could wish for. There's no better feeling than knowing your children are in good hands when they leave the house in the morning!
