Posted March 25, 2009

Through the years my son has attending 3 different school systems which up to now I was very satified until I enroll my son in Fairview at Lincoln School. I am extremely upset and feel very frustrated because I feel that the school and the whole school system is poor and needs a lot of improvement. Children are not treated equally and are not given all the attention needed while teaching especially to those kids that might need extra help.

There are alot of wonderful Teachers! They need more extra activities Also, offer student tutors-even if it's other students or high school students and a wonderful homework bullentin on line. So, parents could check-sometimes kids slack off (which is normal). Parents Need to Get Involved...PTA MOM

I feel the academic programs should be more challenging and interesting to the students so they don't get easily bored or uninterested with learning. They need for activities to stimulate their minds and goals to accomplish.

Every school in the Fairview Dist. has something positive to give back to all of its students, as with any school they are willing to work 100% with the parents if their child may be facing any type of difficulties, but we as parents must take that 1st step and ask for it. This school is filled with a wonderful diversity of teachers and students. And the office staff is always courtious and helpful.

The teachers in this school are wonderful, especially Ms.Belgiovine, but the school itself is not all that great.

Since my oldest son coming from a catholic school, I was very worried how he would adjust to public school.I must say that it was a very good experience and his teacher was the most caring and thoughtful person. She also made learning an experience to remember, this was five years ago and I now have three others who attend the school and are thriving. Thre are many dedicated teachers who show the children how to learn and make it a positive experience for them.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
