9 Parent Reviews for Fair School Downtown

The teachers are first rate, curriculum is varied and challenging. However the administration is worse than absent, and seems more concerned in covering its own rear than in its schools. I agree that the bullying (mostly verbal) is rampant and unchecked. My student is unacknowledged when bringing up ...  Read more

I had a student at FAIR Crystal. 2 years, and we left running. For my child the academics were a challenge however I think most children would struggle to feel challenged.

I remember when the MacPhail Suzuki Department used to practice here, orchestra, group and note reading classes every Saturday. When the School changed from IDDS to Fair, the incoming disallowed a valuable partnership with one the flagstaff music schools in the country. The bureaucratic irony of that ...  Read more

My daughter goes to this school, and it really stresses the needs of being creative while at the same time making sure that the students are gettting the education they deserve and need. A fantastic school!

This is an awesome school! My 8 year old has attended since kindergarten. The curriculum stresses personal responsibility and civic mindedness. The teachers really seem to care for each student and the principal always has her door open even though she currently is the interim principal. I can not ...  Read more
