Our daughter is in Kindergarten at FSK. The early childhood team (pre-K, K, and 1st) work very closely together to differentiate instruction for the students and we feel confident that she is getting the support she needs in all subject areas. In addition, she feels known and cared for by all the adults in the early elementary wing of the building. She is making good progress with reading, writing, and math, has made friends, and really enjoys the after-school program. We love being a part of a neighborhood school community where parents look out for one another's kids and support each other in and outside of school.

Supports LD students: Agree

The differentiated instruction in the early grades really seems to be working for all learners. There are also a number of supports in the school like Reading Partners and Advanced Academics.


Develops character: Neutral

I don't know how much the school is doing overtly in this regard, but I do feel that my daughter is benefiting from being in a diverse school setting and learning with and from her classmates from different backgrounds.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
I don't have experience with the upper grades yet but the early childhood team is outstanding.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Sometimes it feels like a lot of homework for Kindergarten. There is a monthly project that is turned in and we generally have fun doing. There is also a nightly homework chart that is completed on the honor system (no work sent in) and a nightly reading log. On the whole it's manageable and on point, but the amount was surprising to me at first.


Amount of homework: Agree

I'm just not used to paperless, but it works

We absolutely LOVE FSK! Great school. Our child is happy and doing great! We love the diversity!

We have always loved living in the city and explored many options when it came to choosing a school for our daughter. We enrolled our daughter at FSK for kindergarten and haven't looked back. She now is in the 3rd grade and is thriving in all ways imaginable. She looks forward to going to school and has developed a great sense of pride through all of her academic accomplishments. The parent involvement is second-to-none and the teachers, administration and staff are fully engaged in making FSK the best that it can be. We couldn't be happier with our choice to enroll at FSK!


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
If there is ever a concern they 100% will listen and work to resolve.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Kindergarten has optional homework but it's strongly advised you have your child do the assignments. I believe the teachers make them relevant to the month they're working in, age appropriate and fun. I don't have to push my daughter any of the work most months.
