I choose this school because my daughter wasn't getting the help she needed at her other school. I have gotten nothing but help and support at this school. My husband and I are really glad we made the switch. The principal and all the teachers all very supportive and care about the kids.

Great school and staff. Principal listens to concerns and I have seen changes made when I told him my concerns. My kid has a hard time and his teacher works with him a lot to make sure he understands. I meet with his teacher a lot to see if he is doing better in class. Lots of extra things for us to do like movie nights, Christmas raffles, music concerts, after school reading club. I wouldn't want to send my kids to another school. Glad I live in this district and area. Keep up the good work.

The classes are overloaded. If you have a perfect child, he/she'll do fine there. If your child is struggling, teachers expect you to do all the work, don't expect help from them. No one-on-one help for students that need it. it seems that the teachers are in control of the school, not the principal. Teachers are very "clicky". Some of them are texting while they should be teaching. They are very big on teacher's kids favoritism, and favoritism based on last names that it is obvious to other students. Teachers are allowed to have their own kids in class. Your cries for help for your child will be ignored. Very disappointed.

We are a school of choice family and sending our children here was one of the best and most important decisions we have ever made! The staff is excellent and each child is given the attention and care needed to be successful. We are so grateful that our children get to be a part of the great things happening at this school!

I am a proud parent of 2 kids that attend Farrell-Emmett elementary. The staff is exceptional in every way. They go above & beyond to help EACH student where help is needed. My kids have both learned so much already in just the few years they have been attending.
