I had two children attend Fairlawn for K and 1st grade (the school also has a pre-k program that includes typically developing children and those with special needs). The school climate is positive and nurturing, and there is an active and effective PTO. School-home communication is excellent, and parents are welcomed as classroom volunteers. Most of the teachers are fabulous; a couple are average. Class sizes are usually around 17 kids per class in 1st grade, depending on enrollment. The new principal is very much an early childhood person. She is good with the kids, but has a little work to do toward becoming an effective administrator (in my opinion). She seems dedicated and I am sure she will improve with experience. Overall, I am very happy with the education my children received at Fairlawn. We will miss it!
