Most of the elementary are good. It would be best to get the schools ranking from the Board of Ed

One more thing to add to my response is that all of the FH schools are run very differently. Some are focused on academics and standard test scores, some are art and music focused, and some are more well-rounded than others. It speaks to the culture of the school and the type of education you want for you children.

Good luck again.

As real estate agents, we cannot answer this question directly without violating Federal Fair Housing laws, because it steers buyers to the areas with the better schools. The agents who responded to this question with specific schools are at risk of a hefty fine.

That being said, the best resources to help you with your question is to ask the parents at the local playgrounds. There are 4 in the neighborhood and all of the parents are open and honest about the school situation. Its probably the most discussed topic. As a FH parent, I strongly urge you to speak with other parents for the best perspectives.

In general FH has great schools based on standardized tests scores but like many school districts, face overcrowding. You can find more reviews on the following sites:

There are blogs and listservs that you can access to reach out to other parents as well.

Good luck.
