I am not very happy with the staff answering the phone anytime I may call about my child. They are not helpful, and rush the conversation. I am a very laid back individual and they care more about the teachers than the students at this school! "Teachers Union" I am looking to transfer my child!

My don is entering second grade at FPS, and I can't say enough great things! The speech department is amazing, he was corrected in 2 months, the guidance counselor is so passionate about her job, and all of the teachers truly care and want to be there! There is plenty of help and parent volunteers, so,

This is one of the best if not the best primary school in east Tennessee. I have a 5 year old son who started Kindergarten this year. His teach Mrs. Proffitt is sought-after and the few times I've met her and her aid, Ms Wagle, I've been very impressed with their outgoing nature and eager to dive right

I have two younger sons who have yet to start school and I can't wait for them to start Kindergarten at FPS. We can't hide our dolphin pride! Read less

Wonderful School. My son is currently going to this school as a Kindergartener. We have just moved to the area from another part of Tennessee. He was not getting challenged enough at his other school and was getting bored. So I checked the school scores before enrolling him in a public school in Knoxville.

My child will be in Second Grade this fall. We hope she gets a really good teacher. Her Kindergarden Teacher was wonderful, 1st Grade was a big disappointment. Homework almost every night was a bit overwhelming.

I have/have had children in this school. One has a moderate learning disability and the others are average/above average students. All of my children received an excellent education. Even though the school is packed with students they are not stingy with their services (speech, resource, etc.). The

She teaches each student according to their learning style and the results are fantastic. Miss Mimi ensures that children feel safe and teaches life lessons with puppets - the kids love it. Mrs. Craze, the principal, works with parents to ensure the success of their children. My negative experiences have involved the library staff. At times I am amazed at how nasty they can be to both the children and the volunteers. Perhaps it's time for the current staff to retire. Read less

We moved to this area last summer and my son is a special needs child. Everyone at FPS has gone out of their way for him. I was really nervous with my son starting a new school, with his autism, but everyone listened to my concerns and fears. He is having an excellent 1st grade year.

We've had two kids through Farragut Primary School so far and one more to go. We really didn't like the prior principal who seemed more interested in her convenience and parents were a bother. However, the current principal is incredible. She really cares and seems to set the right tone for the school.
