If you are fortunate enough to have or to have had, your children at this school, you will know that this is the VERY Best! This school is not intended to fit the needs of those who believe "testing" is so beneficial to creating life-long learners that much valueable time is wasted on it. People who appreciate a great deal of testing ought send their future factory worker offspring to a different school so they will be prepared for what life is about to offer them. For the record, Fayette does, in fact, test for understanding. Both of my children learned invaluable skills both academic as well as social. I feel very grateful every day that I was able to have my children educated at Fayette Street Academy.

I know this is strong, but this school is a complete joke. It's more like an extended nursery school. The children do not take tests and are not at all prepared when they move on. They teach Chinese and other tough courses, but the kids have a hard time retaining in the long-run, although it sounds great when you're looking into it. I have to give them this, they are great at teaching kids how to climb a tree.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
