The review about the teachers not being able to teach is bull. Farquhar is an excellent school. The teachers try their best to work with you to help you succeed. Many kids throughout the world blame their problems on teachers. This is because they are not giving enough effort to try to succeed and work with the teachers. At Farquhar everyone treats everyone like family and that's exactly how a school should be. I believe that Farquhar is an amazing place to send your child to.

Farquhar is a wonderful school. Caring teachers and the best Principal around. We were new when my son started 6th grade here and he loves it. I love it too and am thrilled we picked this school.

My son loved his middle school years at this school. I feel like he was extremely prepared for high school. Students well behaved and respectful. The new principal is excellent. Parent involvement is high. My only complaint would be the overcontrolling PTA. I joined and listed my name on several things I was willing to volunteer for. I was never called. The same people want to control everything. Better ideas for fundraising needed. Overall, however, excellent school and teachers.

From 2002-2005, the school has improved because of the new administrative team and new, creative staff. The parents are more involved with decision making and students are supported in many of their classes. The music department is very strong and there are many opportunities for all students in the school's after-school activities program.
