This school has gone down hill. yes pick up and drop off is easy but they don't really care for the kids that go there. I do childcare for after school and 5 of the kids i watch are always getting bullied and hurt by other kids. The teachers are not watching and teaching the kids the way they should.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this school, the parent/teacher interaction is perfect. Drop off and pick up is a breeze! And the staff is great. Coach is a bit of a meanie in the mornings....but other than that, AWESOME SCHOOL! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! My kids like waking up and going everyday!

First time for my toddlers to be in school and I have to say, there is no patience for my 3 yr old. The principal told me because he is a transfer student, she can drop him at anytime if he can't follow directions. It has only been 2 weeks and already my child is being threatened for dismissal. I attend school 4 out of the 5 days and don't see any behavior that is not correctable. At 3 he does not listen well all the time . But what 3 yr old does! The teacher seems to care alot about the kids but REALLY could use some reliable help in her classroom. I can see her being fustrated trying to handle 22 toddlers alone. They offer alot of ways for the parent to interact with the kids and be apart of the team. However, I feel as if I am and "outsider" and not a partner in my kids education. I am tryin gto be there but the princpal won't let me volunteer in my kids room. I have been offered "observation only" time. WHy sign up as a volunteer if you can not help out? I am disappointed as this school got great ratings and was the reason I chose it. Having major regrets.

This is a great school. Principal is new this year. Everyone seems to care about the students. We have two 5th graders... I just wish they would teach 6th grade there so they wouldn't have to move next year.

My post was removed. Censorship is bad when the public makes decisions individually. My view can be silenced on a site like this, but I will not be silenced. My post being removed proves the point I made in my post. To the person who flagged me, you can have this site for your own. Shame on Great Schools for allowing this.

I agree that the teachers and staff are great. I, however, do not share the enthusiasm for the Principal. Not only is she lacking in leadership, I think she spends her time hiding out between the two campuses. She needs to retire and allow some fresh, new enthusiastic talent to take over!! She never takes responsibility for her own shortcomings and mistakes. This school is just average. I think the parents that rated it it higher have never had kids in any other school and have nothing to compare it to. My older two attended other Texas schools as well as schools in other states that were much better than this school.

The academics on this campus is above the starte recommended and they keep excelling. My child has leaned so much more here than his other school. The office staffs are excellent at their jobs and make you feel welcome when you enter the building

Excellent school! My oldest daughter went to Ms. Jewell last year and my youngest is attending Fairview this year and their teachers are excellent! We are a military family, and due to a parent being deployed my daughter missed a lot of days of school last year. We were told that if there was an absence because of a deployed family member, they would not be counted against the student. But the principal still wouldn't let my daughter attend because of her absences, which were because her father is deployed. Other than that, everything about the staff/school is awesome!

My children went to Miss Jewell for 2 years and I had several problems with 2 teachers and the problems were not taken care of the way I would have liked to have seen! Excuses were made for their behavior! We're just gratefull that our children have moved on to the next grade level and don't have those 2 teachers anymore!! The other teachers and staff were great! Just a couple of bad 'apples'

I wanted to say that I love this school and I think that the staff puts the needs of the child first. I love the fact that they do a lot of interventions to make all children successful. The only complaint I have is the new inclusion teacher, she does not seem real confident and seems like a lot of things are over her head. I think that she might need more training or maybe some more classes to update her on new things. I know the principal has to be aware of this, and she is great about correcting situations like this. This is my 3rd child in Fairview and this has been my only complaint.

I love this school, I love the teachers and staff. They seem to truely care for my child. They always go above and beyound to make sure that my child is on grade level. It there is an acedemic problem, they address it before it becomes a mountain my child can not climb. I really like the new Resource teacher, she is great. My child loves her to and he has picked up more in 1year with her then the precvious Resource teacher.

This school is alright. I think you kind of have to make do with what you're dealt though. The teachers seem to be delightful, however their equipment and school grounds could use rehabbing. If you've got other options, I recommend really looking into them.

Great school! I've worked in 4 other schools in other districts, but I've never seen more dedicated teachers then I did at Jewell.

This is a great school with some awsome teachers in it. The children are involved in a lot of musical activities and participate in arts and crafts and sports. The office staff could use a little help though in not treating the parents like we are 3 year olds. All in all it is a good school.

My daughter attended school here for 2 years and loved it. The teachers were great. The staff was very helpful and encouraging to the kids. We are sorry to have moved away from the district.

My children have only been in this school for four months and they really love it here! The teachers and staff are really friendly and that they cheerfully greet you when you walk through the doors, before and after school hours. After school the teachers are out there waiting with the children who are being picked up by parents, allowing parents time to talk to the teachers, which is a good thing. The school curriculum is challenging, but it does encourage the children to learn, which is a very good thing. The school has a very good AR reading program, which I love, and it encourages children to read. The school could use more work on their GT program, though. Class field trips are great but the school could use more school activities. Other than that the school is really good and children really like it there.

I really like this school. The office staff is friendly and willing to help with any problem. The teachers are there after school for parents. They arent out the door the minute the school bell rings. The school has a Great parent resource center, every one should pay it a visit.
