School is the worst if you have a child that is special needs... I can't even elaborate without becoming angry. Let's say that if your child is not excelling in sports and academics and has a learning disability then you won't fit in at Fairview. And the ratio is too high 26:1 at this time....many parents unhappy with this.

That review is totally off the wall and could not be further from wrong. There is racial diversity in Fairview and there is most certainly financial diversity...one only has to look at the number of free and discount lunches that have increased in the last five years. Please if you have some issue with the school please go in and speak with the principal of your school and discuss it. Please do not make a broad stroke assumption online.

We've had a very good experience with this school. The principal is top notch and responsive, and the parents are generally involved. The administration is clearly proud of the school's test scores, and you do feel the test focus here, but yet there's generally enough fun in the curriculum to keep most students happy. I think it speaks volumes that the principal and many of the teachers have their own children attending the school.

We could not be happier with the quality of education and educators at Fairview. All of the staff, including the principal and specialists are wonderful. They are professional, hold high standards, and maintain a very positive and nurturing environment where the kids have a lot of fun. You can't beat the school. Most parents are as happy as we are and the kids just love it. I really don't know of anyone that isn't generally pleased with this school. There are always so much going on for the kids to do in and out of school. I read the review from March 25, 2009 and am totally perplexed by this parent's opinion. If you have an issue-they deal with it. We wouldn't send our kids anywhere else-public or private.

I think Fairview elementary is a school were all they do is push the facts..I see little hands on activities and learning is not fun for the children. Parents are not informed on what is going on in the school until the last minute. The website that is suppose to keep the parents informed about what is taking place in the classroom is not updated and when it is the information is very vague. Some of the teachers at the school speak in a manner that is not appropriate and have little control over how the students treat each other. When confronted with the issues it is presented back in a manner as oh kids will be kids! We bought a home in Fairview because of the raving word about the school district..but guess what we are not impressed at all! No diversity in race or money!
