  • It has to start in kindergarten! Our daughter received very little formal instruction. It seems as if they mostly played.

  • I attended the school in the 60's and can barely remember some of it but do remember somethings like dancing lessons after school with Ms Robinson. Hope someone else remembers this and can email me.

  • I went to this school in 1996 - 2001. I loved it! The teachers were GREAT and they built on to the school so it is much bigger than it was in 95'. I was successful in all of my classes and my teachers and counselors helped me when i fell behind. I am 18 years old and my days at Farley still play in my head and I wish I could go back!! Your kids will LOVE it there!

  • I attended this school from 1990-1995. I can tell you that the education I received was certainly sub-standard, but the treatment I received at the hands of teachers, counselors and administrators was far, far worse. Academically, I ended up being successful with exception to mathematics. I fell behind my classmates in third grade and Farley was completely incapable of rectifying the situation. I don't think any attempts were made on the part of any of my teachers (despite the small class sizes) to help me overcome this particular obstacle . All were aware of my difficulty, but chose to simply tell me that I was smart and should be able to do better. Also, I received only torment and humiliation at the hands of the school counselor. I am 23 years old now, and I still need help to overcome the emotional trauma she caused. I strongly suggest for the well-being of your child that you explore educational alternatives to Farley.
