Open Quote For some reason this school can't get my name right. Then again it's only been 2 years. Maybe after my daughter graduates they'll figure it out. Whenever I ask a question, they deflect the answer. Then they get an attitude. There's been problems with the school bus. They won't give answers. They try to blame DOT. A million excuses but no resolution. Close Quote

Open Quote The school is unfair in many cases, even though the school is called "Fair" play middle school. Dress code rules for girls don't effect certain students most of the time, but it effects other students. The school lunch isn't very up to par,majority of the students that attend Fairplay, bring their own lunch to school, instead of eating school lunch.Certain teachers in different grade levels,accuse students of doing things that aren't true.This is a review of a relative of a student who attended "Fair"play Middle School.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
