My son has attend Fieldston Lower since he was in 1st Grade and he will be entering 7th Grade at Fieldston Middle School this fall. I'm a working mom and even though there are clearly very wealthy children attending this school, my son has formed tight friendships with many of his classmates and has never told me of any situations in which a child has treated him badly because he's not wealthy. He is very eager to go to school and takes pride in his schoolwork. The teachers are available whenever needed even though I've noticed that the teachers tend to be lenient with the kids because the administration feels that parents are paying too much money (staff members have alluded at this when I've told them to be strict with my child & not let him get away with things). Overall I'm very happy with the school.
My daughter began last year in Pre-k, and we cannot say enough good things about this school. The parents are very involved and the school has a real sense of community. My daughter has made many friends here and the parents are very real. We feel very blessed to be a part of this school, and could not be happier.
