I have had children at Fairbrook for seven years straight now and it is our home away from home. This is the second year for our new principal and she is wonderful. She knows our children and is incredibly supportive. I have met with her a few times now with concerns and she has never failed to put my mind and ease and work with me to my complete satisfaction. She is pleasant and warm and very knowledgable. One of my children had a problem on the bus and he was comfortable enough with her to go to her on his own and discuss the problem and he never had trouble after that day. The teachers are supportive and welcome parent involvement. I often see teachers going above and beyond to help their students. From purchasing crayons for the entire class because so many of the children talked about not having any at home to passing out Hershey bars to work on fractions, these little things matter and help give our students a warmer environment in which to learn and a better education. The character education program is an added bonus. Children in grades 1-4 work together, led by fifth grade den leaders and staff members, to teach things such as respect, trustworthiness and caring.

I would have agreed with all the positive ratings listed here if the previous principal had stayed at Fairbrook. The new is one outdated, uncommunicative, difficult and rude. I do not find that they are doing what needs to be done for my special needs child or my typical child. They teach to the tests to maintain their "excellent" rating rather than caring if the kids learn. They are more concerned about appearances than teaching. It is a poor example of education and does nothing to live up to the Beavercreek reputation. Worst school my kids have ever attended!

As the mother of a special needs child, I not only look for the bet schools, but the school with the best special education program. Fairbrook has both! They have provided all the services my son needed, bought equiptment he needed, including a special swing for the playground, and have been more than willing to meet to discuss his IEP whenever changes were needed. Beavercreek schools in general are wonderful!

This is a fantastic school! The teachers and principal all do a wonderful job and we were very happy. My three kids attended this school and I would highly recommend it.

As a parent I cannot say anything bad about Fairbrook. I love this school. I am very sad that I have to leave and move to Michigan. Nothing will ever compare to the awesome experience that my 2nd grader has had here. Mr. Schweiterman is the greatest and it shows. He is the principal.

This is a great school! Starting with the principal Mr. Schwieterman to the teacher, pupils, and the parents. High parental and teacher involvement really make the difference. Three of my kids went or go here. When we came to Fairbrook we asked for help and faculty and staff swung into action! They observed my son for a month then convened a team that met with us to discuss options. We agreed on a plan they suggested a tutor and gave us names and my son improved immensely. My daughter had special needs physically so once again we convened a team and they set up adaptive Phys Ed and worked with her physical therapist with periodic update meeting as needed. From what I have observed my family's experience is not unique. This school stands out as 'the way it should be done'. Kudos
