Fir Grove is what we called an alternative school when I grew up in Seattle. It was where the surrounding schools in the area placed children that had behavioral issues, and the inability to function in a traditional public school setting. When our school district suggested our special needs child be placed at Fir Grove, it was with the belief that this school and their staff were best prepared to educate our son. Unfortunately, we've learned the hard way that this school has a stigma in the community and with law enforcement. If your child has any propensity to become violent because of their mental disability, I would highly advise that you consider other means of educating your child before you allow your school district to place them at Fir Grove. This school WILL be a gateway of introducing your child to the juvenile justice court system, and you will wish you had been warned.

My child went to this school for years and I thought it was the most horrible school ever. He did not learn anything from going there but a bunch of bad behavior that he didn't need to learn. I was told by one of his teachers that he will never be successful and will not graduate. Well he hasn't been there for two years and last year he got a 3.5 gpa.

My daughter attended Fir Grove during a difficult time in her life. With the support from teachers and staff she was able to return to the mainstream and has had excellent success. This school and staff were largely part of her success.

This school has done wonders for my son. He started there in 2nd grade and is now in 8th. It is a safe, encouraging, motivating, and understanding place to learn.

Vancouver School District should be ashamed of itself for neglecting this school and the children attending it. It is ancient and there are factories that have more appeal. The library is virtually non-existent. This district shows off it's newer schools and has hidden Fir Grove, with it's special needs children, under the rug. There are well-qualified teachers at Fir Grove, including one National Board Certified teacher, but it is very apparent that Vancouver School District considers the children of Fir Grove unworthy of a proper school environment. Visit this school in person and let Vancouver schools know what you find.
