Fairmeadows is not a great school. The teachers are not teaching kids to get understanding and comprehension. Classes are over crowded and staff into favorites. The school is more focused on bilingual verses the basics of learning. Bilingual is great, but should not be the primary focus over shadowing the basics.
Fairmeadows is a great school. My son has been a student there for 3 years and i have no complaints. The teachers are very involved and really care about their students. My son has a mild speech delay and has definitely come a long way with the speech therapy provided at Fairmeadows.
This school is only conserned with #'s and the teachers are not capable of teaching the large 25+ kids in their classroom, they complain to the parents while the kids suffer!
We love Fairmeadows. The four years that we have been in the school, we have not seen a high turn-over rate. You would be amazed at the high expectations that the administration, teachers, and students have. My hat goes off to Fairmeadows primarily for its success in working with low-socioeconomic and bilingual/esl students.
My son has attended at Fairmeadows for Pre-K, first and second. My second son has just started pre-k and we all love it. The staff are very genuine and sincere. My only concern is that they don't give enough homework compared to some other schools I have heard of.
This is an excellent school. The teachers from Pre-K through the fourth grade take a genuine interest in the lives of the children. The principal and entire faculty and staff go the extra mile. Their expectations of the children are high and so the children achieve at great levels.
Last year was our first year in Duncanville school district. My 2 boys were in 4th & 1st then. The school is very good, but very strick. The teachers are pretty good. There are some that really don't have what it takes to be teachers. If all the teachers were like the principal (mrs.King) the whole school would be an excellent place. She is wonderful. She shows the kids just what they want 'attention & love'.
This year was my child's first year we have had issues from the beginning. It seems that are jobs as parents is to make the teacher's job easier. At least that was the point that I was getting as one of the teachers keep stating that it would make her job easier. To me teacher's are there to teach. The new school year we are enrolling our daughter into a private school.
