    Level of energy and enthusiasm at this school goes across students/teachers/ parents and administration. Blending traditional learning critical thinking and team projects provides a strong foundation for students headed to high school and beyond. Our sons found their voices at Fisher and were very successful here.

    this school is split up between african-american (black) and caucasian (white) ethnicities. the teachers here really do observe the students. by experience my child was put in a more challenged class than where she was before because the teachers thought she was to be pushed to her potenrial. this school is great i rate it a 3 and a half.
