This school has changed for the better. I worked at Fahari for a three years and things have changed. There is a vast change. Our school is a happy place. We have wonderful children and we love their parents. Our parents are the most supportive that I have ever worked with. They know that educating is a partnership. I would encourage everyone to come and visit and make your own decision. Talk to our dedicated teachers and students. Please ask current families what their experience has been. Families have embrassed the new Fahari.

I am a parent of a former student at Fahari, I am very disappointed in the fact that I am also a very involved parent. I even did my Field Observation for my Master's at this school. I sat in the classes with my son and observed, kids being rude and disrespectful, not listening or paying attention, and in some case certain teachers not interested wither. At the end of the school year, my son got a letter stating that he was to repeat the grade. I was with him 75% of the time, they gave me glowing reviews and then they gave him that. I attended classes with him that his advisor taught, that was it for me, he is in a better school and advancing wellin his classes. He even is now the Soar Captain, which is the equivalent to Class President in his grade. I did not do my research and failed my son to day that I allowed him to go to Fahari. And on the topic of the principal, I never saw her so they did not fire much!!!!!!

To the parent below me: I am an overly involved parent. I attended EVERY school meeting, frequently visited the school, sat in my child's classrooms, went on the field trips, etc... and I still insist that this school is/was ran horribly!!! Which is why the principal was fired! This lacks the 'vision' that it is supposedly built upon. For a school that boasts on PRIDE (Fahari means pride in Swahili) and with a predominantly black student body, this school has no mention or teachings of slavery in America instead the students are taught about the German holocaust. The vision of this school is gone. Good luck to the children who are still there. I'd rather homeschool :)

I pulled my son out of public school and put him in this school and I have no regrets. Parents who speak ill of this school are the one who do not come out to any of the meetings so they do not know what is happening in the school. I am present at every meeting in the school and they are normally only about 10 frequent parents in the meeting, where are all the other parents and how much do they really know about the school. Since my child started this school he has not done any summer school, he is passing all his subjects because I am an involved parent. I do not wait for the teachers to call me,I call them or I go to the school because they have an open door policy. The next question is how many of them know we have a new principal...I know because I am always there and I keep intouch although I am a parent working two jobs.

This is my first year at Fahari, but not my first year teaching in a NY public school. I have heard about the struggles that Fahari faced in previous years and I can say that its a whole new place. If you talk to parents, teachers, and students they will say the same. Student and teacher attrition has dropped to almost nothing, the environment is safe and welcoming. Students have already shown improvements of up to 2 grade levels. Please come and visit and see for yourself!

This weekend the school had an event for the mothers and daughters of the school and it was great. We were able to bond with the girls during different activities and conversations. The girls were able to enjoy their school in a different way and I loved every moment of it. Don't worry the boys were not left out, they will have their event, this upcoming weekend. This is exactly what our community needs, a school that is providing different events for our children to bond with their parents and for the parents to bond with their children. I say kudos to Fahari Academy for providing that.

This weekend the Families For Fahari did a wonderful job of planning their Mardi Gras party for the mothers and daughters of the school. I was very happy to be a part of such an event. The girls had a good time, the parents had a good time and even the teachers had a good time. It was great to see every one get to know each other outside of the class room environment. I am happy that Fahari have events like this because, our lives get so busy now a days that we don't always get to spend as much time with our children as we may want, but with these events, we are still able to stay involve with our children and what they are doing. Thank you Fahari!

My child attend this school, I am living with regret today because I removed him from great programs at his old public school. The communication with parents is very poor, you do not get a sense that they care about your children.I am looking for a new school to transfer my child, poor choice of school, think twice before you send your child there. disappointed parent
