It all depends on who you know in the community and if you are an alumni.

We moved to the Fairland school district in hopes to find an amazing school that helped our kids and amazed us as parents and proud our kids go here to only find such disappointment in both elementary schools. Academics is the only priority this school has. They shut the parents out literally and refuse to listen to any concerns you may have with your children unless you are well known. Both schools do not allow you as parents in the hallways, you can't walk them to class, you can't bring cupcakes to their class on their birthday you have to drop it off in the office and say goodbye and if your child is being bullied and hit and threatened nothing will happen bc the bully comes from a hard home. If you're child is in a reading program and starts to do well they are removed and refused back in when he starts failing again. And if your kid has adhd get ready for a 3 month fight on accomadations bc he is too smart for an IEP. Only a select few are chosen to get awards at the end of the year and there is no 5th grade ceremony. I am very disappointed in this school district as far as elementary school goes. The parent involvement is not allowed and if you try you are chased down in the hallway and told you are not allowed in the hallways.

This school is full of bullies and the staff seem to do very little if anything about this issue. The Assistant principal never did return my calls. I do like my kids teachers, for the most part also the planned events they hold at the school are always a joy for my kids to attend.

My children started Fairland 2 years ago and I like this school very much. The teachers and staff are great, always going the extra mile for the students and parents. The school is always sending emails and informative news home. Always on top of making sure parents are updated on any changes they make. My children are always excited to go to school and are always in positive moods when I pick them up....they always have something to share at the end of each school day. Dismissal is always punctual and very organized. Fairland rates 5 stars in my opinion...keep up the good work!
