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
