This school has won the blue ribbon for education award many times. I am a parent of a smart add challenged child. The teachers motivate her! She went from a C student to an honor roll student with 6 times the AR points. We have a booster club, where we do "free things to reward & enrich the children's lives." The teachers are great, as they are there for the right reasons; they love children, enjoy teaching them, & BELIEVE in each child. I am proud this school is this is a "No bully zone!" The children are taught to stand up for other children, tell a teacher, principal, parent etc. They have student conferences about how to work out conflicts in ways that make other students feel good, by pointing out what is right with other children by what they like about them. Teachers give up a third of pay to buy class equipment & supplies. Parents & others can volunteer. We run copies. Teachers have more time to teach. We help with the Librarian to dedicate more time to students. Any poverty stricken child is given food on Fridays . I have seen children who turned into butterflies: socially & intellectually. The kids have the power of Believing in themselves & others!

Fancy Gap is a great school. The Teachers work very hard and expect that the students do the same. The parent support is good along with the leadership of the Dr. Ewards

My grandson goes to FGE and I am appalled at the amount of homework that is given to fifth graders! It takes approximately 4 hours each night to complete all his assignments. I also feel that they are so bound by SOL standards that they push these children and that they are not really learning but memorizing. Learning should be fun!
