We knew almost immediately upon visiting Fayerweather how well my daughter would fit into the school. Everyone was warm and welcoming. They presented many opportunities to meet other families, learn the curriculum and the culture which is truly unique. We began this year and the well rounded focus on ...  Read more

I currently have two children at Fayerweather, and my eldest is in the process of interviewing and applying to high schools. I cannot say enough how delighted I am with how this process is going, and I feel a large part of my child s success is as a result of the education he has received at FSS. The ...  Read more

We were one of several families that left last year. At the time it seemed like a difficult decision but there were too many wrongs at Fayerweather to continue. We didn t expect to find very disruptive students at Fayerweather, so much so that my child s educational and emotional experience would be ...  Read more

My son had a marvelous year at FSS. One year is not an easy time frame for anyone to reside in a country that is half way around the globe from home, especially kids. All sorts of fears, doubts and anxieties quickly dissipated as practically everybody at FSS - from the staff members, teachers, to Head ...  Read more

Our experience at FSS was not ideal. We never felt supported or welcomed by the school. We got to the point of asking ourselves Why did they even accept our children at this school if they didn t want us there? I remember how friendly the Admin was when we were being courted to attend, but as soon ...  Read more

My daughter was getting an adequate and sometimes even excellent, education at our local public school. However, she experienced teachers and students who just didn't "get" her-- her learning style, her self-expression, her enthusiasm for learning at her own pace. My beautiful, smart, outgoing little ...  Read more

Fayerweather is a terrific school, and more than that, a terrific community. We have two daughters who have been at Fayerweather since Pre-K. They are very different kids with very different learning styles. The school has served both extremely well. Both kids have been challenged and supported in ...  Read more

If you are looking for a small school with a big vision, competent staff and a safe space for your child to mature intellectually, emotionally and socially, I heartily recommend Fayerweather. Due to previous educational experiences, my daughter came to FSS with gaps in knowledge and skills and a corresponding ...  Read more
