This is my son's first year here and I love it. We moved again and I made sure that I stayed within the same area so that he could go there. Its not as diverse as the other schools in the district, but we haven't had any problems.
Fernway is a fabulous community school. The neighborhood is full of school age kids, and the vast majority of them go to Fernway. The school has responsive to the needs of my children, and has worked hard to meet those needs. It is a warm and wonderful place.
My children attend Fernway elementary and it has been a nurturing and progressive enviroment for them. The teachers in Shaker are among the most highly educated in the county and this really shows in their dedication to their students. The high value placed on both academics and the arts is a rare find in a public school. Parent involvement is encouraged, with a high percentage of both mothers and fathers pitching in. The only complaint we would have is that despite it's cultural diversity, there does seem to be an undertone of racial tension with some parents. But then again, this seems to be an issue not just at Fernway, but throughout Northeastern Ohio. Overall, as a family, we are pleased with our experience at this school.
My daughter attended Fernway for three years. We loved the school, especially the teachers and the wonderful curriculm. Lots of extracurricular activities.
My daughter attended Fernway for kindergarten. It was the best experience ever! My child started school barely being able to read and by the middle of the school year she could read a book, lead me on a tour of her class and do Geometry! Parent involvement was outstanding. Parents made sure the school had what their children needed! Mr. Cannon the principal was awesome and handled situations immediately. The teachers were outstanding! The children went to school eager to learn. There was also different nationalities that allowed you to know your child was growing up without color barriers!
