My daughter attended Fruchthendler for 2nd and 3rd grade. We had a great experience with Mrs. Tinsley and Mrs. Landau. The new principal Mrs. Anderson has an amazing vision for the school and the PTA had many opportunities for parents to be involved. The OMA program is Wonderful!

It is amazing all of the wonderful things going on at Fruchthendler. I don't know why anyone would consider going anywhere else. Our new Principal is fantastic. We are really excited to be a part of such a wonderful school community.

My child had a wonderful experience this past year. He was struggling in math and his teacher stayed after school and tutored him until he understood the math. I see so many teachers with the same commitment. My teacher keeps updated with my child progress. She had been very supported of my child and ...  Read more

Going down hill and fast. We bought a house in the Fruchthlender boundaries before our kids were born as we heard it was top notch. After just one year there we learned otherwise.

Fruchthendler is a Superior School! Just like many things in life there are many choices and what is a good fit for some isn't a good fit for others.

My son just completed his first year at Fruchthendler (Kinder). We were very pleased with the school and his teacher, who in my opinion did not display the negative characteristics others have written about on this website. Quite the contrary- I found her to be very committed to learning, had a good ...  Read more

It's humorous that a reviewer below said Fruchthendler is a "top notch school" with a "true community environment." This could not be further from the truth. We had our children at this school for two years and what a complete and utter waste of an education. The school has been turned into a daily social ...  Read more

Its seems that a number of parents have found that certain teachers have an extreme bias against male students. Complaints to the principal result in a simple response: If you don't like it leave.
