Open Quote My son has went to Fairdale ever since he was in Kindergarten, he is now in the 3rd grade. I love this school because my son needs the extra help that some students does not and the staff here are so nice and helpful. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter has excelled at Fairdale. Every time I walk in, I am greeted with a smile. The teachers really care about their students, and in our case, have gone above and beyond all expectations. They have done so much to advance her academic career. She was reading on a 2nd grade level in Kindergarten, and her teachers helped keep her from getting bored by giving her higher level sight words, until they were pulling words from a 6th grade list. I will always love Fairdale Elementary for everything they have done! Close Quote

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.
