I have been the parent of a child going to Fallbrook for 3 years. He has had 3 very different teachers, all were great and went above and beyond teaching; As they all have to. My son has learned to read, do math like a 6th grader, and there are awesome music and art classes with fun projects and concerts at least once a year. The office all call my son by his first name since the first year of school. They are always there to answer any questions and have been trained to deal with all sorts of situations that arise in the first years of a child going to school. Some kids are going to school after never being around many or any kids their age. That alone brings kids that are scared, nervous, angry, hyper and some act on it. It is going to happen and the faculty at Fallbrook are really wonderful at dealing with every type of issue the kids and the parents of these kids have. I give them 5 stars for my experience so far. I've been called or messaged whenever something comes up that needs to be worked on at home as well as at school. Thank you, Fallbrook. I have seen all you do for the kids. And appreciate you all!

My daughter was about to enter her 1st grade year at this school when we found out she was placed in an inclusion class with a student that bit her the year before. We reached out to the principal for assistance in having our daughter moved to a new class and she refused. She did not care how my wife, I, or our daughter felt about the situation and responded No to our request immediately on reading it. We were then forced to take matters into our own hands to ensure our daughter's safety and move her to private school..
