Fairview is a wonderful school! I am always so welcomed and my children have always had wonderful and caring teachers. My children have learned so much and the staff goes out of their way to help in any way that they can. I am so happy that my children get to have this wonderful experience.

I think Fairview is a great school. I have 3 children there and am very happy. I think Mrs. Thomas is a very caring principle; You see her all over the school! She is very involved. I have had wonderful, happy , kind teachers.

Fairview is blessed to have a level of innocence no longer found in much of America. It is a good place to teach, learn and grow. Kelly Thomas, the new principal, is wisely getting the 'lay of the land' prior to making any major changes. I do agree that the staff needs to work on friendly faces. October 5, 2007

This school may have a good academic program but, it is not a warm & welcoming school. They have an open door policy which is great but, when you come in to see your child no one gives you the time of day. Teachers will see you and wont even say hello. You leave your child in there care all day and they can't even say hi. Teacher yell and are disrespectful to the children. Not nurturing at all. I'm sorry my child was zone for this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
