My boys have been here for 3 yrs. Staff is great. My boys needed extra tutoring and the teacher's brought it right to my attention. Mrs. Malik the secretary is great, and Mr. Whitaker is an awesome principal, great interaction with the students. If you move Here I highly recommend this school and area to live close close family orientated. Were sad were leaving the school not the weather.

What an amazing school! I forget that Fort Island is a public school and not a private school! Copley-Fairlawn is a wonderful district and this elementary school goes above and beyond. Great teachers and support staff, a PTA to rival any top PTA in the nation (literally! They have the awards to prove it!), a great sense of community and tons of parent involvement. There are so many opportunities for fun for these kids in addition to learning. I couldn't recommend any school more!

My child attended Fort Isalnd 2013 - 2014 school year and has had 4 different teachers and substitutes in between and that was only the first grade. My child will not be returning. I also agree with the comment regarding minorities, something just isn't right. It all about testing at Fort Island, even the teachers have told me they're confused.

This school was not a good fit for my child with special needs. My child failed the proficiency tests and was refused additional help on multiple occasions. Minority children are failing miserably at this school.

This is a wonderful school that my child has enjoyed. My child has attended all grades here as well as myself. It has a very involved PTA and the parents are well received by the staff. There are many after school programs that vary and all children should be able to find one that suits their interests. The students have a well paced education that challenges them while having fun. I have grown up through the school system and have my child doing the same. This is a fabulous area to raise a family!

Fort Island is an wonderful elementary school. We are very happy with the academic curriculum. And also LOVE the art, physical education, computer, guidance, music, and intervention programs. The PTA is very active and the teaching staff and the principal are all completely dedicated to the success of this school and its students. Our children have thrived at this school.
