  • We are parents to six children and as five kids have successfully graduated the FD School system, and one child currently attending Fair Oaks Middle School.we are qualified to review the FD schools.
    A couple of our children did attend the Catholic School System for a few years and although I do not wish to write a negative synopsis of the private schools I will state the POSITIVES OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.and how relieved we were when they began attending the public schools. great staff and student/teacher ratio at Fair Oaks.also we have been pleased with the cross curriculum teaching.wonderful approach to teaching
    Jess Madsen is a positive role model as Principal and our daughter looks forward to school days.that says it all we believe.
