We moved here in January and I can't say enough about Fritsch. The staff, teachers, and PTA are all caring and wonderful people. My daughter felt very welcomed when she first started and was excited to go back today for the first day of school.
i just graduated from Fritsch and i woulod say that Fritsch is a really good school that has really good educated teachers. Fitsch also has a great principal and vice principal. Fritsch is the home of the Bulldogs so show your spirit every Friday and where red, grey, and white. If you want to send your kid here i would suggest going!
My son is actually districted out of empire but since empire was such a terrible school and a school in need of improvment i was able to take him to Fritsch and i absolutly love the teachers and staff there he wants to continue on at fritsch and i just might move just so he can!
I doubt there is truly a 'perfect' school out there. I like Fritsch and have had a great experience with the teachers my child has had.
I am very disapointed with the lack of support and respect given from the principal. The teachers and parents are given vey few choices in the education of the student.
I have all four of our kids go through Fritsch and I believe it to be the best school in the area and one of top schools in Nevada.
They refuse to help student below or above average. As a parent who is always involved it pained me to see the teachers and principal's lack of interested in making the school a success. If you arrive at the school past 3:15 you will not see one instructor on campus. I would think that our children deserve better. The playground is absolutely scary. The children are left unsupervised in areas and major problems have been prone to happen, teachers are rarely seen on the playground. The students have been seen in the front of school as well unsupervised. There are a few teachers who are very good at what they do. But with the lack of unity among staff and parents; you do not have a school which runs efficiently.
My son has been attending Fritsch elementary for 2 years and we couldn't be happier. Both teachers have been extremely involved, nurturing and supportive. My son loves going to school and the education he is receiving is excellent in comparison to other children we know in other schools throughout the country.
There is an odd feeling of discord throughout this school. Teachers bickering, school administration bitter towards parents and teachers and so on. Our children deserve better than this. We need to 'unite' for our children to receive the best possible education in a safe environment.
We are disappointed in the way the administration handles certain issues. It seems instead of being encouraging, the higher administration is gearing more toward fault finding.
We have just completed our second year at Fritsch. We are looking for another school to attend. The office staff is very unapproachable despite the numerous hours of volunteering I have done. There is a severe shortage of services for children with special needs. I have heard a lot of evil spirited competitiveness amongst the teachers. With district changes, the principal of 21 years and 5 teachers are all retiring/leaving at the same time. There is a small handful of great teachers, however they are in the minority.
I recently switched my children to Fritsch from a private school here in town, it was very scary going to a big school, however, the office staff was very welcoming and eager to give my children and I a tour of the school. The teachers seem very knowledgeable, eager to teach and pleasant. My overall experience so far has been wonderful!
My daughter has just started the second grade, I think the teachers are very polite, patient, and appropriate. However, I think the office staff are very rude to the parents, judgmental, impatient, and should keep personal matters of others out of discussion when visitors are around. I think that we the parents would feel more welcome to participate and volunteer etc....
The teachers are great with the students but the office staff and principal seem very egar to have the kids leave or not to be bothered by them.
