    Fairmount Elementary Testimonials 2

    Fairmount Elementary is an amazing elementary school!  Don't let its size fool you as the team that keeps the school running from the Principals to the Teachers to the Support Staff are simply the best.  Every single teacher my 3 children have had over the years have been wonderful teachers who go above and beyond.  We are so thankful for Fairmount and the education it has provided our 3 children since kindergarten.

    Fairmount Elementary Testimonials 1

    We have been part of the Fairmount Falcon Family for 6 years now and I could not be happier with the school. At Fairmount, you are always treated like family by the staff and teachers. My kids love their school so much and are so happy every day to go to school. The education and direct support my children are able to receive is outstanding. Over the years I have become more active in the Fairmount community and I can absolutely tell you from behind the scenes that the love, care, and attention put into every aspect of running the school is incredible. Although in a few short years all my children will transition to middle school, we will always remain a FAIRMOUNT FALCON at heart.
