This school is terribly overcrowded. There is little to no communication between faculty and parents. Teachers here care more about test scores than actually instructing students, they teach to test not to succeed or retain. My child was thriving at our previous school and here it is the opposite. The kids here are terribly behaved and there is no control in the classroom. This serves as a severe distraction to kids that actually want to learn. I sincerely hope that the intermediate school is a better experience or I will seek to transfer my child.
This school is a joke. Worst experience ever. Everyone acts so entitled. If you want your kid to end up being a good person this is not the school for you. First grade my son had the WORST teacher ever. Do yourself a favor and get your kid in a school with some diversity. This might as well be a private school.
My Son attended FPS kindergarten and first grade, most awful experience! The teachers act like they want your child to succeed, but if your child has a learning disability or ADHD they don't seek interventions, instead want to hold your child back a year. I'm so glad I changed my Son schools, interventions are in place now, and my Son is getting caught up not thanks to Farragut Primary.
Both of my children attended FPS, Kindergarten thru 2nd grade. It was a wonderful experience for my children and for me, as a parent. The teachers were very caring and provided a good academic base for the kids. The negative that I have is the school is too large and they don't do a good job of ensuring that there are students in your children's class from the previous year. It makes the children's experience so much better and the transition to a new grade so much easier if they have a familiar face they recognize.
