Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a community member
We have been fortunate to have our kids benefit from some really tremendous teachers at Fisher -- some very experienced educators and others who are just beginning their path in the classroom. Each of them have brought their unique perspective and style in to the school.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a community member
While there is homework, it is not the focus for many/ most of the teachers. There is also an afterschool homework club for students.


Develops character: Agree

The school has an academically and economically diverse population and the teachers and administrators work had to ensure opportunity for and access for all students at all levels.

We are very fortunate to have this tremendous resource in our community for elementary education. Small class sizes, dedicated teachers and administrators, engaged community support. With the introduction of a new math curriculum in all grades this year, teachers have extended themselves to parents to help everyone understand the expectations and goals of the math program. Our three kids have been able to thrive in their education at Fisher.

Very poor special education and outdated teaching techniques in general ed staff. Staff is barely accountable to Principal, who is barely accountable to Superintendent. Clueless School Board. Special Education Directors have been renegades. High staff turnover rate. Poor leadership. BVSU refuses to join other Supervisory Unions, remaining an island that can't pool resources and talent. It does have small class sizes going for it, but teachers have low expectations for student performance.

The overall Great Schools rating reflects aggregate test scores that are negatively influenced by the above average population of special needs students, some of which move into the school district because of Fisher's reputation for strong support services & inclusion. Fisher has some amazing teachers and small classroom sizes (10-12 students), which services all students in providing them with a strong education that is certainly above average for a public school. They also have excellent in-school programs for music and art, as well as an after-school activities program offering different electives. My primary suggestion for improvement would be for them to change and strengthen their math curriculum. Overall, this public school has earned and deserves an above average rating.

this school is wonderfull. I have 3 special needs children that started out in Fisher. My oldest is in the high school and is on the honor roll. My middle child is off the IEP and is doing exceptional work. He is reading and doing math at 2 grade levels above his grade and my youngest is getting all the help he needs to succed in school. I have 1 more at home with a learning disability and I can't wait to have him join the Fisher family.These are all adopted children with a lot of trama doing well in a school full of love for childern.

thia school whips out learning and does it fast so many students don't really learn and forget what they learned ;




- a parent
We have a son in Kindergarten. The principal and teachers have gone out of their way to welcome our family to the school. I am impressed by the ability to contact the principal and the teacher with ease.
