Farine Elementary School 5

Farine's teachers and staff are all so very supportive and encouraging to the kids. My son is in first grade and is in his second year of the dual language immersion program. He is six years old and speaks, writes and reads in two languages, with English being his primary language. It is such an impressive program and very well run. He loves being able to learn in two languages and I know he is being set up for future success by being challenged so early in his educational life. I highly recommend Farine to any parent that is looking for a challenging environment for their children to learn in.

This school has been nothing but accommodating, supportive and nurturing for my son. He is now in 1st grade and I couldn't love his teacher more. Ms Hunter. What a great teacher. She is caring, supportive and goes the extra mile. The staff are all very friendly and the systems seem very well organized.

My children love Farine. The dual language program has been outstanding for my girls. My oldest is now in fifth grade and speaks fluent Spanish and has had no difficulty in other subjects. The administration has been very accomidating with my child's medical condition which causes her to miss days regularly for treatments.

They are so awesome here! the teachers are excellent and the duel language program is the bast. Mine will be going into the first grade next year as a GnT, and can already have a conversation with someone in Spanish. Her growth over the past year in reading, spelling, and math has been nothing less than amazing and her teachers, Mrs. Mauzer and Mrs. Isaac are totally awesome! Thank you so much

I have had children at Farine for 4 years. Both of my sons are in the dual language program. In fact, we moved to Irving because of this opportunity. The administration & staff at Farine have been nothing short of amazing. They are focused on teaching our kids to read, write & think. I was especially impressed when I asked my then 4th grader if he knew when the TAKS test was. He did not, even though it was only 2 weeks away. This told me that they were more focused on teaching my kid than on test scores/strategies, etc. I have always felt welcome and felt like the administration and staff were ready to work together, with me, to address any issues that have come up with my kids. I cannot recommend Farine highly enough. As I've read the reviews on this site, what struck me is how they have improved over the years. This is proof that the administration is working to make things better all the time. Do not hesitate to send your kids here. You won't regret it.

I have two daughters, both enrolled in the dual language program. Though there have been struggles, I have found that the administration and teachers have always been willing to work together to find a solution to any problems, with my children's best interest at heart. I would encourage any new parent to start their child in the dual language, it is really providing them with a great gift!!

My daughter has attended Farine since 3rd grade. She has always had wonderful teachers until she reached 5th grade. I am so glad this will be her last year there!

My daughter is in first grade and her second year in the dual language program. I am thrilled to have her learn a second language (Spanish) at such a young age. She is doing very well. Her teachers have been great working with my daughter as well as communicating with me as a parent. Overall, I have been pleased with her education at Farine.

Overall, my children have been very happy at Farine. The music, arts and humanities programs are outstanding. When we have had concerns, we received very strong support from the principals and counselors. My son has some unique mental challenges that can make it difficult for him to learn new tasks. The counselor has gone out of her way to guide us. With her help, my son has thrived here at Farine. We are deeply appreciative of all her efforts.
