Fairview Christian School is a hidden treasure in Seattle. The location is wonderful - just east of I-5 on 78th and Roosevelt with a huge parking lot and before and after care. I love this school because the teachers are staff do a wonderful job of teaching my kids - but they don't just teach reading, writing and arithmetic. In addition, they teach the kids Spanish, PE, Performing Arts and music and they teach it all from a Biblical point of view. They teach the kids how to be effective public speakers, how to perform in front of an audience, how to think logically about problems and they build up their character. They teach them about integrity in decision making. I love this school and I love the impact the teachers and staff have had on my kids and my family. The community here is amazing and very culturally diverse! I love it!
Warm and loving community! Amazing teachers! Inviting parents and most importantly Fantastic faith based education all within small class sizes. So much to offer (Spanish, music and physical education multiple times a week!) I can not imagine a better atmosphere for my children.
Fairview is a warm, big, wonderful family where kids receive extra TLC. They leave at a much higher academic level than just average.
This school captured my heart the first time I stepped in the doors. Fairview provides first rate education, surrounded by high values and loving community. They have provided an incredibly excellent foundation for my child's life. Fairview is building his soul while ministering to his heart and educating his mind. This school is a treasure!
By far the best price you can find for a private daycare and with a school attached. I look forward to watching my child grow there.
We have grandchildren currently enrolled at Fairview. The teachers and staff are very involved with the students, making sure they receive encouragement and additional assistance with their learning if/when needed. The drama program is great! They have before and after school care, which was VERY important to us when our daughter was there. Also they are blessed to have a large school property located on an entire city block with easy access from the freeway for commuting parents.
Great School! My children love the small classes and have excelled in all aspects of academics.
This is our third year at Fairview and I have two kids enrolled. I can't say enough about this great place! The teachers and faculty really care about each family on every level. My kids get a great education because class sizes are small and teachers have an opportunity to understand each child's personality and learning style. The annual science fair is an academic challenge that even the kindergartners (and younger) participate in. My kids will be better prepared for future grades and adulthood because of their experience here.
Fairview Christian School has been a wonderful place for our child to begin his education. The teachers are very caring and attentive to each individual child. We really appreciate the parent involvement and close community Fairview offers.
My child has attended Fairview for the past three years. Fairview provides an excellent education that respects, celebrates, and embraces each child s individuality, culture and ethnicity in a Christian environment. The students receive a great amount of individual attention because of the small class sizes and my child continually scores at or above grade level on standardized test. African American Parent.
When my family first visted, the environment seemed very warm and inviting. As the school year continued, I felt that staff lacked diversity training. After the first year, I continued dialogue with the principal and provost about my concerns. They suggested that the next year would be better because of the ongoing conversations with teachers. However, my experiences with overt stereotypes were happening on a daily basis. As a highly educated African-American family we withdrew our child from the program. If we were experience overt stereotype, the concern became how were their ideas and thoughts being placed upon on child (not only in the child's educational development but the child's personal growth about the world and the child's place in the world).
My daughter loves going to preschool here. Her teacher was excellent. They learned a lot about science, phonics, and social skills, among other things. I like how she is able to learn about God and the Bible at school, too. The teachers are very caring and involved, and there are a number of very hard-working parents who volunteer for the school.
Excellent, excellent academic program. It just keeps getting better. They have brought in teachers to specialize in specific content areas who then come into the classroom to work with the teachers to challenge chiving students and to work with struggling students. They have just added a bunch of extracurricular activities from chess to singing, to art and have always had a great partnership with other schools to provide an excellent experience for students interested in sports. All parents are encouraged to volunteer their time and each year a number of them really take leadership rolls that have a great impact on the school.
Wonderful school. We had 1 daughter attend for preschool and pre-K. The social skills and values that the children learned really prepared her for going into kindergarten. She was given opportunities to succeed academically as well. We loved our experience with this school. Her teachers were wonderful, attentive, and loving towards the children.
