Read what parents are saying about Fairburn Avenue Elementary School
My child attended the TK program at Fairburn Avenue Elementary and it was nothing short of excellent! Her TK teacher was amazing - knowledgeable, collaborative with parents, patient, caring and kind to all of her students. My daughter loved attending school and formed a wonderful bond with her teacher as well as with her classmates. My child is now in kindergarten and I'm already very pleased with her new teacher (my child is too!). Fairburn's size is perfect - not too big, not too small, just right. Everyone seems so happy - teachers, staff (particularly the office staff - they are all great!), and the after school staff. And Fairburn's principal is a gem. I truly can't say enough good things about Fairburn Avenue Elementary and look forward to spending my daughter's formative years at this wonderful school!

My second grader has attended this school for three years, and she loves it there. Her experience with each teacher, from each grade, is different, exciting and very positive. She loves attending school! Mrs. Marton the principal, is loved by all. She’s awesome!

Something truly incredible is happening at Fairburn. We are so fortunate to have Pam Marton (former principal at Community Magnet Charter) as our new principal. Her spirit is warm and welcoming. Most importantly, she is willing to listen and collaborate with parents and teachers to help our children thrive. FAB (Fairburn Avenue Boosters), the new parent-led booster club, has done an outstanding job of unifying the community.

Mrs. Pamela Marton the new Principal has re-energized this community in one of the most amazing ways possible. She's truly bringing everyone together to work on community spirit, academics and raising good independent thinkers. Looking at the school around the areas it's one of the smallest schools, truly feels like a private school with committed parents and a warm intimate vibe.

Fairburn is a great school. The principal can at at times be a divider rather than a uniter; however she is retiring after this year. The teachers are mostly great, however there are a few mediocre ones - we have had fantastic teachers as well highly disorganized or cold/mean in 1st grade. However overall this is a 5 star school in terms of the small community aspect, teaching, the parent involvement, kids all know each other at all grade levels, and it truly is a neighborhood school. GATE doesn't mean much at this school, though there is a wonderful teacher, Ms. Marantz, for differentiated learning in language arts. There is a great program for 4th/5th graders where they work on a weekly webcast with news stories that is a great experience. We have enjoyed getting to know families that all live within walking distance from the school.Also, the after school program is amazing - Arnold and his staff are outstanding.
