My child has gone to Fairfield Elem. for grades K-4. I guess it is a decent school - or at least everyone from this town seems to think so. I grew up in a different town, so I compare all of the things I had at my elementary school to what they offer in Fairfield. I am disturbed at the fact that the elementary school does not have an actual art class. This is the age that kids are creative and it really sets the pace for how they will express themselves. They run their lunchroom like a prison chow hall - the kids better not talk above a whisper or they will be pulled aside to eat by themselves. As mentioned in the comment before mine, yes, this town is very judgemental - that goes for the parents and the children. That seems to be the mentality of Fairfield folks.

As a former teacher of Fairfield Elementary School, I feel qualified to say that the campus has a high quality professional and administrative staff. Each teacher cares deeply and is committed to providing the best educational services to ALL students. The campus is not only a great place to work, but also healthy, nurturing enviornment filled with highly qualified professional, with whom you can confidently entrust the education of your children.

Both my children have gone to Fairfield Elemntary in their 2nd yr now. The Elementary seems to be a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The only complaint I might have is in a small town school it is hard to overcome judgmental people. When your child gets into minor trouble you seem to be labeled for life and always a newbie. We moved from a big town to a small town environment hoping for it to be better. The education system here still seems to be growing but all in all has been a great learning experience and my children have excelled academically.

About the tests

Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
