The teachers and other staff work hard and clearly care about the students. The principal is very smart, warm and engaging, but is also no-nonsense and runs the school in an organized manner. My children have been very happy at Fairview and are getting a good education there.

This is a title I school that has been meeting APY. The staff is outstanding, the principal does a really good job of being involved, communicative and in touch. He has no vice principal and it is a fairly large school with over four hundred students. Considering the resources and challenges we have I would say this school is excellent. Our home and school association functions well and the school is proactive in watching out for bullying and taking strides toward prevention. We have a new guidance counselor who is also very involved and friendly and I have two fourth graders in the school and soon one in K. Overall I like the school, it feels homey and friendly and the teachers are well educated by and large. Would I love to see more funding? More after school programs? a cafeteria, yeah I would, but educators make the school and at least we are rich in that.

I've had 3 children attend Fairview School within the past 10 years. I have nothing but good to say about the school, its teachers and its principal. I am very glad my children went through this elementary school.

My daughter just graduated from Fairview and her 6 years there were fabulous. Mr. D, the principal, is kind and attentive to the students needs. He and the entire staff both academically challenge the students as well as teach them valuable life skills. The community is diverse and there is a multicultural approach to education. I'd recommend this school to anyone who is moving to the area.

I have children whom attend Fairview in grades one and six. I'm pleased with the progress & growth my children are having in this school. The academics challenge them, they look forward to the next school day and they're respectful of both the staff and friends that they've made. They enjoy music, sports, language arts, glee club, fun math, trips and creative projects both with parent involvement and alone. The principal's positivity trickles down to the staff which in turn reflects in the students thurst to learn. He has respect from this community due to his personalablity and roll up your sleeve's approve with the students. The teacher/student ratio is excellent. Parent get involved & show support in great numbers at school events. I've had positive results with Fairview based upon what I've experienced daily in my children's schoolwork and my interaction with the staff.

The entire staff at Fairview works very hard to ensure that the students get the best education possible. The Principal is truly a gift from God, he's cares about the welfare and education of each and every student in his school. He's a great leader for Fairview.

I think Fairview is an adequate school. My daughter has done well during her time there. The teachers appreciate feed back and communication if there is a problem. They do try to help and encourage the children as well as the parents. Overall I am happy with Fairview School.
