Fiske Elementary School in Wellesley, Massachusetts, provides an extremely positive learning environment, where progress, hard work, and personal effort are observed, commented on, and valued. Principal Anthony Colannino is a tremendous addition to the staff who personally learns the name of every child , encourages a positive outlook, and promotes (via dialogues and book groups) learning a la "Mindset" (author: Carol Dweck), offering the perspective that every child can learn and grow--with study and practice. The "Fiske Fundamentals" -- Fair, Inclusive, Safe, Kind, Encouraging -- are promoted. Kids get comment cards from students and staff when they are "caught" demonstrating FISKE fundamentals. The PTO is active and the Kids Care Club -- 15+ year old service organization -- is vibrant and active, introducing kids to social service opportunities via the Food Pantry, Bristol Lodge, and green initiatives. I have had two daughters with very different personalities attend the school and thrive. Opportunities for development: more standard math education (i.e., long division) and improved infrastructure (i.e., roof, health room, cafeteria, newer playground).

I have 3 children who have attended Fiske. My oldest has since graduated and moved on to the Middle School. Our experience at Fiske has been amazing. The teachers are caring and wonderful with the students. There is a great support community within the school families and the PTO. My children have thrived and thoroughly enjoyed their years at Fiske. I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of moving in the area.
