Really great school for our 10 year old. He loves it and he has been attending this school for 1 year.

My daughter transferred to Fitzgerald this year from a very small private school and had a difficult time adjusting to such a big school. The school staff (especially the adjustment counselor) has been nothing short of amazing with helping her adjust. The (interim) principal is very hands-on, friendly and experienced and is extremely accessible to parents. The assistant principal is the same and seems to know every child (500+!) by name. The teachers we have encountered so far, and the staff, are just fantastic. And the PTO is very involved in the school and respected by the administrators. We are very happy to send our daughter to Fitzgerald every day.
