Fairmount Elementary School Reviews
Fairmount is a terrific little school. Our child is in her 3rd year there and is very happy and thriving in the school's family-like environment. There are lots of actively involved parents and the PTA raises money to bring extra curricular activies to the school, such as Science through Nature, Drama, Dance, Art, etc. to further enrich my child's education. The teaching staff is amazing, as is the school's leadership. There is also a great after-school program on-site that offers homework assistance and fun clubs for kids.
