    FOR ALL THOSE PARENTS CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR CHILDREN ATTENTING THIS SCHOOL FALL 2013- YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOO! BECOME INVOLVED WITH THE SCHOOL AND YOUR CHILD S EDUCATION. THE MORE PARENTS WE HAVE WHO CARE THE FASTER THIS SCHOOL WILL MEET THE STATE REQUIREMENTS. DON'T COMPLAIN AND NOT DO ANYTHING. DO SOMETHING AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE EDUCATION YOUR CHILD RECEIVES. PLEASE SEE MY REVIEW OF THIS SCHOOL. This is my son's first year of school and his kindergarten teacher is one of the greatest people I have met. My son was diagnosed with ADHD this year and his teacher and the Vera French worker have been the best support team for us. They have continued to work with my son and thru this entire school year and at the beginning of the year he barely met the requirements and now he is passing all test and meeting all goals. We are looking forward to this coming school year and learning even more great things at Fillmore!

    Fillmore has the opportunity to be a great school. There are some people living within the boundary of this school that have chosen to ignore the opportunities of the school to thrive. Yes test scores aren't the best however STANDARDIZED tests are not the best way to determine if a school is great. I was apprehensive about letting my daughter go to this school when I saw the test scores however I decided that it isn't only up to the school to teach my daughter the things she needs to learn. As a parent if you are involved in your child's learning they will do wonders! Staying in touch with the teachers is easy to do if you take the time to do it. I am dedicated to making this school better by being an active participant in my child's learning. I have two more children that I will happily send to this school in the next two years. I urge other parents to be accountable for their children's education and don't let lower test scores let you pass up this school. They are just numbers and we can make them fly high! We CAN make this school better.

    I am a teacher at Fillmore School and am proud to say I work at such a wonderful place. I love coming to work everyday the staff students and parents make my work so rewarding. I know first hand that every staff memeber takes great pride in the job they do as a parent of two young children myself I know that a great education and strong vaules are so important. I would be honored to send my children here in the future. Fillmore is for sure a place where you feel 'home away from home'. No other school that I have taught at has compared to Fillmore. What an awesome place to be.

    I will give it a rating of 5 stars the staff and educators have gone above and beyond there call. It does come down to parenting and being involved. You get out what you put in to it. Step up and get involved with your school and childern

    I am a parent of 4 kids. I currently have one child in Fillmore. Another will be attending in the fall. I think Fillmore is a wonderful school and has come a long way since my son first started. Their staff is very consistent with the kids and caring. My son has ADHD and the staff take good care of him. They offer counseling among other things to help him with behavior. I feel the staff goes out of their way to make sure each student succeeds. I am very excited for my 5 year old to start kindergarten this fall.

    As a parent of 2 Filmore students I can say that I love this school. The teachers actually care about the children and this shows in the one on one time they spend with each and every one of them. The teachers are quick to discover problem areas and even quicker to set a plan in motion to help the children over come their problem areas. I am very pleased with the education my children receive at Filmore and I am very proud to say that I am a mother of 2 filmore students.
