My son has been at Fawcett for 2 years and absolutely hates it. He is one of the more advanced children in his class but is afraid to participate due to the taunting and physical abuse that he suffers on the playground. His lowest score on his report card was a 94%, however his teacher had not one positive ...  Read more
