Fayetteville St School has a wonderful staff that cares about the students. They are there to make sure our children who eventually become their children make it. Letting each one of them know that they can accomplish anything they put their minds to do. They are somebody. I enjoyed my grandson coming to this wonderful school. The spirit that is there must have spoiled over from when I was there, because they teachers wanted us to know that each one of us they were proud of.

Fayetteville Street is one of the smallest school's in Durham with one of the biggest and caring staff. The staff are very knowledgeable about curriculum and helping students to succeed. They often go beyond what is required. Parents are encouraged to be apart of the decision making team as well as a part of the classroom.
