Develops character: Strongly agree

Fayette has a culture of kindness, tolerance and fosters true inter-personal communication.



- a
At Fayette, my son has thrived and continually blossoms into his potential. He had a very hard time in the atmosphere of public school institutionalization and was seriously demoralized by not having his learning needs met there. Fayette faculty have taken the time to understand his challenges and they have worked carefully with him to get him on a path of self-confidence and joy. I love that they teach personal responsibility instead of just blind rule-following. This is a valuable lesson that he will take with him for life. The outdoor play is stellar and the life balance they teach is also a precious gift.


Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
My child was diagnosed ADHD and after discussing concerns and options for medication, we opted against medicating and got full support from the teachers. The frequent physical activity is great for kids who need more than sitting at a desk all day.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
They study several religious texts. They care for the environment. They teach kindness above all.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The school has a unique rhythm and the Hard nine weeks has the homework. But it's a short term challenge that shows the kids what they can handle.




- a
The teachers are loving and truly care. I can't say enough about the academics- wonderful! They allowed my daughter to progress at her own pace, even giving her one-on-one advanced lessons. Socially, it's going to depend on the kid. Most of the kids who do well here tend to be quirky and a bit different. If your child has disciplinary issues or pushes the limits of authority, the staff will be tough on them. I think that was the issue with some of the negative reviews. We could not have been happier here. That being said, it's a very unique place and not for everyone.



- a
We look forward to beginning our 6th year with Fayette. At each grade level, we've found the academics appropriately rigorous and the teachers creative and engaged. We are lucky to have found this jewel of a school!

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
I feel that the teachers compensate for what they do not teach by giving unreasonable amounts of homework.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
You can see the weird social environment of this school when you watch how the younger children treat the older. They tattle on the older students constantly, delighting in getting them in trouble. This all comes from the teachers, who are extremely authoritarian, have unfair and arbitrary disciplinary procedures, and definitely play favorites and pit students against each other.



- a
As a parent of a former student, I can strongly echo what others have said about the abusive, unfair environment of this school. If your child is independent and questions the school's systems, they will constantly grind the child down until s/he believes s/he is somehow flawed. My child was frequently shamed, sent home without reason (or any communication from staff), blamed when other children misbehaved, and treated like a psychiatric case. When he transferred to a great new place, he was able to blossom and shine and remember the bright competent person he actually is. What a travesty. They just want your money. Don't give it to them. They should pay me for what my child endured there.
