18 Parent Reviews for Fairview Elementary School

My son has just started here and so far I couldn't be more impressed. The teachers seem to really care about the education and welcome parent involvement. The extra curricular activities seems wide ranging and give all kids a chance to get involved. My son has come home everyday excited about his day!!!

The principal is very "by the book" and seems unwilling to make decisions based on individual child/family needs. Perhaps the school is just too big for the principal to have an interest in individual children.

I couldn't agree more with the comment about this schools administrative staff. I have had the same experience, they are unfriendly and unwelcoming. They do not want parents coming into their school which makes me wonder, why? Fortunately my kids like their teachers so I'm hoping the environment changes ...  Read more

My daughter and son are in the third and fifth grade at Fairview. We started my daughter in k and my son transfered from a charter school to Fairview in third. He was unbelievably far behind his peers at Fairview, but the head of the class at Evergreen. His third grade teacher was so dedicated. She worked ...  Read more

My family is impressed with Fairview. My children came from private schools and transitioned into Fairview beautifully. The teachers have high expectations for the students. We are so pleased we chose Fairview.

I have had three children in FES and it is kind of a creepy place. my child is kindergarten now and I am looking at other options. It is to crowded and the teachers are not all very nice to the students. They yell, teach the test and are very gossipy. The principle, Mr. Upton is a great improvement from ...  Read more

All of my four children attended Fairview Elementary School. I did not like the large size of the school and what seemed to be 'teaching to the test'. Math and English were the primary subjects taught - forget science altogether. We pulled our youngest one out after second grade and he is very happy ...  Read more
