Fairview school is one of the best schools in Jackson Co. I went to it when is was first built and I had some special needs and they was really good about helping me get the help I needed, My daughter also went to another school in Jackson Co. and they treated with disrespect because she would get done with her work before the other children, and instead of giving her something else to do they held her back and made her sit in a corner. Until the other children was ready go move on. So we moved her to Fairview and she was in the 3 rd grade and when she finished her work they would give her the next assignment or she had to help out other students that needed that special help. My daughter has always been a straight A student, I have several nieces and nephews that attend Fairview and they get that special help. One of nieces lives in a different Co. and her parents would bring her to Fairview because that is where her older sibling graduated from. The teachers and staff really care for their students and takes interest in them by helping them learn.

Awesome teachers. Mt son has a peanut allergy and I was very worried about him going to school eating there. His teachers have been fantastic!

The staff at Fairview Elementary really seem to care about the students. I see way too much yelling and shaming of the children though. I believe the school could benefit from sending all teachers and aids to "parenting" workshops to learn how to discipline and create order, while treating the children with respect. They also use awful fundraising programs and techniques that ostracize the poorer students.

My kids school is Fairview. I have no rating for the school. The principal ,social workers are disrespectful. My wife has been confronted to try to get a altercation started, being followed, taunted. State policy and procedures are not followed. Wanted to see my childs work/grades asked by written notice and hand delivered to principal. Never got to view his grades in any way shape form or fashion. Do the real research what schools in Sylva accells. The are bothched grades from 74 of the brightest pupils in the school. Wrong fundraising methods. Hat day you pay a dollar you can wear a hat, what about the poor kids???? Sweet treats, pay a dollar get candy bar. What about the poor kids???? I KNOW FOR A FACT ITS DISCRIMINATION!!!!!!!! People say why ruin it for everybody? BECAUSE ITS WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!! Coaches sit and chew gum, it's prohibited and a rule for the students. OK for teachers to break the rules though. Social worker DT told us kids don't need responsibility their kids????????? Just not a great school. Parents are the stake holders at this school we own the children. Love to see all the end of grade tests also. Why havent we seen the real scores???

my son has gone to fairview since pre k. and now is going to be in the fourth grade next year. I can honestly say that I have had nothing but positive experiences with the school, teachers and principal as a whole. my sons teachers has been outstanding and he has done well. his teacher this year , third grade teacher has exceeded so much with him. my son is very shy, bashful, well behaved, nervous child. the school has worked well with him trying to bring him out of his shell. I think that fairview school is a great school and would not hesitiate to send any child there because i know that they are taken care of. thanks teachers and mr profit for all you do and will continue to do with our children

My son is currently attending fairview as a kindergartener and i have been very pleased with his progress so far. I appreciate the emphasis on reading at such an early age. Nathan loves to read and so this is a perfect fit for us. The teachers i have met with so far are very friendly and open to talking to the parents. Nathan is excited to talk everyday about what he is doing in class and the friends he is making. I have no worries at all that he will progress well here and have no problems meetsin the requirements to complete kindergarten.

I am a 7th grade student at Fairview. I think that they are a pretty good school but need more discipline. They do not give hard enough punishments and some people get away with things a lot. They also ask for money a lot and some people do not have enough. But otherwise they are a pretty good school.

While this school may have high educational standards and quality. The level of children attending this school are white. I've had nothing but problems with this school and teachers, other children who have become racist against my own children. This is wrong and parents of Native American decent like we are need to stand together in resolving this problem with this school. Parents of other racial backgrounds need to stand together as well. If you don't have alot of money, or you are not 100% white at this school, you will be singled out eventually. Many are afraid to speak up about it, so therefore this problem goes un-noticed and denied by the school. This has been the worst school that I have come in to contact with.

I was a student at fairview for many years. I just moved in the 8th grade I miss it so much. I have never went to a school that I have loved more. The teachers were great and they had a great sports program. I wish I was back there. Mr. Profitt is a great principal and was a great coach.

I am a student at Fairview Elementary School and I am in the 8th grade. This is my last year at this school. I think that it is a good school program. Mr. Proffit is a good pricipal. I have been going to Fairview since Kindergarten. I think that it is a good school to be educated in. I have also been to Cullowhee Valley School and I can admit that Cullowhee Valley School is more of a sporty school not a learning school. Now Fairview on the other hand does have sports but they also have after school activities. It's not just about sports. I will miss Fairview when I go to Smokey Moutain High School. Fairview is a good school to be at. The teachers are great, the coaches, everyone is great at Fairview. They have a good Pre-K program for kids to get ready for Kindergarten. Thank You.

I have two children at Fairview. Not only have I been extremely happy with their overall education, I just cannot imagine them going to another school. I walk in and feel a sense of ease and warmth. I believe this is due to the principal's involvement, and true interest in all of her students. She has hired a Staff, who for the most part are happy to be where they are, and this shows when they are with the students. And finally the parent involvement is good. Recently The 7th and 8th graders put on a musical production. Both nights were sold out. The chairs certainly had some of those students families, but mostly it was full of people who love and support Fairview. My children could not have a better school!

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.

The different student groups are identified by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, data for that group is not reported.
