The Fair Haven Schools have been going down. The grading system is about making parent and children happy. They have done away with 100% and A thru F . Everything is "FAIR" in Fair Haven, therefore Children are not challenged (that would leave some behind and that;s not FAIR)

Students are well prepared for high school and life in a safe and friendly atmosphere. There are many new clubs to include everyone's interests and abilities. The teachers are excellent and many have been in the area for years.
