We moved our 2 boys from the montessori school to this one. They are both in the full-time gifted (1st and 2nd grade last year and now entering 2nd and 3rd). We selected it over pineview and couldn't be more pleased. The teachers (thank you Mrs J and Mrs C) couldn't be better. Our boys have flourished ...  Read more

Very good school for learning. But the teachers see someone getting bullied they do nothing about it.

My daughter attended this school for a very short period of time I did not like how the prek kids are segregated in the trailers . The teachers and staff are not on the same page if you care about your child education I would not recommend this school.

If your child is self-motivated and a textbook learner then Fruitville would be a great school for you.

You will be constantly told that you are a subpar parent and any concerns you have will ...  Read more

I really am not sure exactly who posted on 10/10/12 but they have some personal issues that have nothing to do with the quality of the school. My daughter has been part of the gifted program from kindergarden. She is so far from acting like an adult. She is very active and is by far, not the most well ...  Read more

We came from out of town. We rented in Fruitville area because we heard it had a great gifted program Our son had an EP for his gifted. We were extremely disappointed when we were informed we had no say in our child's edcuation. They don't meet the whole child's needs there. If your child doesn't fit ...  Read more

This is a fantastic school! I have a son in Miss Sharon's Pre K class and she is just fantastic, as is Fruitville's principle Dr. Laura Kingsley. We are so happy to be apart of the Fruitville Elementry Family!

I would NOT reccomend this school at all!! Especially if your child has any special needs.. they keep them away from other general ed children in portables (only children that are in portables). They basically just warehouse your child instead of educating them. Recently removed my child from this ...  Read more
