My daughter loves this school and she is learning a lot more than what she did at 2 previous schools (one was a Christian private school). As a parent, I have no complaints.

Ault Elementary is not a great school far from it. there is a real sense of indifference as soon as you enter the office with an exception to the front receptionist she should be running this school. The teachers are great no problems there the problem is the upper staff principal who doesn't listen to anything complains about misconduct by teachers some need a class in addressing other parents. Diversity in the office and around would change the uptight gross feel of this school we are not in the sixties anymore wake up!

All three of my children attended Ault. It is a fabulous school. We moved away a year ago and my children have had a hard time adjusting to the new school. We really miss Ault.

This school is great. The teachers care about students and parents are very involved. If you have a question teachers are prompt to answer all your questions. I am so blessed to have found this school. My daughter is now in 1st grade. She was having problems with math, spoke with her teacher and together we worked to get her grade up. Ms Cunningham and Ms Aldride are great.

I love Ault. Parent involvement is wonderful. I enjoy being able to help out the school whenever I can. My daughter loves and adores her teachers. Her teachers always respond through email and notes home. They encourage and inspire her to make the grades that she does. I love Ault !

We absolutly love this school, it is to bad they are changing our students to the new school opening in 2009. My daughter has adjusted well, and we as parents would like the school district to grandfather these children into Ault and send all new students to the new elementary school. Some children do not adjust well to changes and some parents are afraid that the children will stress out and not make the excellent grades they are capable of making. Sorry to hear about the p.e. teacher retiring at the end of the school year!!

We have been completely dissatisfied with our experience at ault. We moved into fairfield excited for our children to enroll at this school. The classes are very crowded, the military structure is over the top for each grade level, there is no one on one for students and teachers, the open room concept policy is horrible. When the kids go to art, music and pe they go 5 classes at a time. My son has even shown me how to do jumping jacks sitting down that he learned in pe. Of course they can't run around in pe b/c there are a total of 100 kids in the gym. We ran into a pe teacher outside of school and she didn't even know any of my kids names. With all this being said, i am currently researching private schools to get them out of this enviroment. Total chaos!

We moved from Louisiana last summer and we enrolled my daughter in Ault. She has adjusted well. The faculty and staff are great, and they welcome parent involvement. They sponsor family-oriented activities. The teachers strive to keep an open line of communication with the parents. I believe my daughter is getting a quality education.

Ault Elementary is the best school i could ever imagined sending my kids to. The teachers care about our kids education and if there is any concerns they address the issue very quick. I love this school for my kids because everybody puts their part (teachers, parents and principals) its like they all work together to make it an exemplary school! Its the best! cant find better words to express it other then its the best! not even when i was growing up with my mom being so involved in school. I've never seen so many parents being so involved in their kids school and education.

Phenomenal school. Very intense academics, but great teachers and administration. As close to a private school as you can get. It is the BEST!

Ault is an excellent school! We moved to our community just so our children could attend this school. We have yet to be disappointed and don't expect to be any time soon. The teachers are always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to assist any student who is showing difficulity in any area. Parents in the Ault community are highly involved in the school and are received by the school with open arms.

It is a great school. I go there and I'm in Fourth Grade. My kindergarten years all the way to these years now have been fantastic. I'm in gt and think that this school is god for you parents looking for hard schools. They are building another Elemntary called Keith Elemantary. It is just right up the road. I think that if you are looking for a school to go to in Fairfield you will have a Great time!!! ~*courtney Age 9*~

Our son is in the 3rd grade and has been there since kindergarden. We do not have the words to describe what an awesome school this is. We have no complaints and highly recommend it. The neighbourhood the school is in is top quality. We have been here for 8 years and will never move.

Public school of the highest caliber in a great school district. Strong leadership. Honestly educates and honestly cares. Great teachers. Great parent/community involvement. Great surroundings. Very safe location in very low crime incidence area. Overall quality of education is outstanding for a public school. Has earned (as opposed to many) it's 'Exemplary' status. If you have a family and are actively looking for a place to live then Fairfield is the place hands down based primarily on the exellence found at Ault Elementary. Have been with them since 2000.
