  • Farragut is a very good school. My daughter has been there for 4 years now. We have never had a problem. The principal is very much involved w/ the children. They make sure every one respects each other. They are very well organized w/ lunches and dismissal. Im thankful for this school and all that my child has learned. The teachers are so caring and involved w/ all the children. In every grade. I would recommend this school for sure to anyone moving in this area or even not in the area because it's worth going out of your way for.
