Ada Mae Faubion Elementary- Our child has attended this school for several years. The experience there has declined in quality. His teachers are often out of class/they have substitutes (this is not including teach training, personal time off seems excessive) and the new principal this year is unfriendly and stand offish. My child's teacher from last year did not even acknowledge him (I witnessed this) and I was literally stunned by the rudeness. Bad vibe here and we are looking into other schools soon. They often watch movies in class too and seems like my child is not learning basics that other kids the same age are in different schools. I have asked teacher friends about this to be sure of my initial impressions on this. Also spoke to a teacher at some planned student activity night; he was a third grade teacher (will not name names) and he was quite openly hostile and we were taken aback someone like that a) had a job b) had a job working with children. Staggeringly rude 'teacher' who poorly represented the school. Cliquey parent groups as well, not a welcoming environment after you have a kid there for a while you will notice. Would not recommend.

My daughter is now in fifth grade. She has been in third and fourth at Faubion. I was very impressed with her fourth grade teachers. They were wonderful ladies that pushed her and helped her to grow. The school is one of the smaller elementary schools in the district and everyone seems to know all the students. I have two issues with Faubion though - the food in the cafeteria is TERRIBLE. Almost nothing is fresh, my daughter has been served food that was not all the way cooked; when the cafeteria ladies were told this, their response was "it was cooked according to the directions". This is NOT acceptable, but is very indicative of the whole cafeteria culture in the US. Now we pack her lunch. The only other issue we have as parents is there is not a really good playground. I was hoping for better, but with only 20 minutes outside in any event, I suppose it suffices.

Fantastic school for our children! My son is now in 4th grade and our youngest will be starting soon and we're excited to send another child to this school!

My daughter attended this school from K to 2nd grade. We were very happy with the teachers in K and 1st grade but were not satisfied at all in 2nd grade. The 2nd grade teacher my daughter's having did not have any motivation for teaching. Very lazy, no communication with the parents. Try to avoid Rae Hamilton as your child's teacher.

This is my daughter's second year at Faubion, and we couldn't be happier! The office staff is great, and we absolutely love the principal. Everyone is very welcoming, and I don't feel that my daughter gets lost in the shuffle. Many of the teachers at Faubion have taught there for years, and I feel that speaks volumes about the school!

Faubion has a unique approach to elementary school teaching. Not the 'normal' seats in a row, teacher at front sort of old world thinking. The classes can change daily and are set up with learning 'stations'. The teacher goes from station to station and makes sure all are continuing to progress. Weekly grades are available online, and you always know where your child is falling behind in something or doing great. All of the teachers help each other and team teach in certain grades. There is a Quest program, and PACE Math classes. DI program is tops and the entire staff are caring and have a small town closeness with a modern approach to learning. There is a computer lab and laptops used in the classrooms as well. Theatre arts andmusic classes are very professional and teach the kids wonderfully. I cannot say enough about how well my daughter has grown as a student and person while being at Faubion. Top notch school!

Great teachers, great leadership. Staff offers individual attention and accomodates individual needs. Theater arts program is great, something we wouldn't see at a 'TAKS-focused' district like Plano. The PTA complaints from 7-year-old reviews here aren't an issue.

We are a small school with big heart. Our teachers give so much of themselves by giving extra time out side of school for special groups for the kids. They have organized Student Council, Art club, Drama, club and pep squad. My children are very happy there and so are we as parents. They are recieving a wonderful education.

I love LISD and my son has attending Naumann as well as Faubion. My daughter started Pre-K here at Faubion and I really appreciated how the office staff did all that they could to help her first of all get in, and secondly feel welcome. She enjoys her teachers, and all of the office staff is very caring and supportive of both of my children at this school. Awesome school!

My son has been with Faubion since Kindergarten, for 5 grades now and my experiences with the school have been mixed. Most of the teachers my child has had have been wonderful, however, the administration is less than responsive and the PTA at the school is a nightmare with massive control issues and egos - situations that are not helped at all by the school administration. One PTA meeting actually included a husband speaking on record regarding the fact that his wife's feelings were hurt by not being invited out with the other parents - this is elementary school on parental levels as well. The backbiting is nauseating. Extra-curricular activities are almost non-existent, and fine arts is infrequent and not daily. Counselor is relatively unsympathetic. Nurse, however, is phenomenal, as is the librarian.

What a wonderful school! My son went here for two years Kinder and 1st. They really embraced his uniqueness. The teachers are understanding and will work with you on any problem. We will definitely miss the school. Words can't describe how wonderful the entire staff is. There are all greatly appreciated.

My son is a first grader at Faubion, and I am very happy with this school! The staff is friendly and responsive, and I feel they go out of their way to meet the individual needs of the students. I love the art, music, and theatre program they offer at the elementary level, and they also have accelerated reading and math programs. The Leander school district in general seems great, and has an innovative program they've developed for creatively gifted students. I particularly love Faubion because my son has some special issues and they let me specify what kind of teacher I'd thought would be good for him, and the teacher they assigned is a perfect match. She has worked with us to come up with strategies to help my son have a positive school experience. I think the school in general has a nurturing environment and great values.

Our experience at this school was overall not good. The teacher did not deal well with unique children although she maintaned good control of her classroom. The principal was practically invisable and when I did see her in the halls, she was a woman on a mission without a kind word to offer those she passed. PTA president should be de-throned. On a positive side, the school nurse is wonderfully helpful, office staff polite and a great music program.

I went through all 6 grades at Faubion (including Kinder). Faubion was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Now my mom works there, and when I go to visit her I am recieved with a smile from the office staff and the teachers, even the ones who don't know me. The school is definately secure, with most doors locked for the kids safety. I have visited other elementary schools in the past during volunteer programs and I have to say, Faubion ranks among the top I have seen!

This school is not parent friendly. The PTA hounds parents and continuously sends notes home begging for volunteers. Parents easily find themselves burned out on PTA. I transfered my child from the school after one year.
