School Reviews

Too bad I couldn't give no stars! Fairmont has to be the worst school I have ever dealt with. Fairmont has limited extracurricular activities and programs. The students that perform in the talent show each year, do it without a stage to perform on. The communication between the school and the parents is horrible. I will say that a lot of the teachers are great and do the best they can with the school curriculum. On the other hand, there is also a few not-so-great teachers/staff. I had an experience where one of them was bulling my 4th grader and don't even get me started on the secretary! Fairmont is supposed to be a magnet school, but it seems they have just adopted this title because Fairmont is located in an unincorporated area. My recommendation is, If you can avoid having your child attend this school, do it! It will be one of the best decision you ever made.
