    My child transferred to Fairborn Intermediate half way through the school year. I wish that he had been at this school the entire year. The staff was great and the students were very welcoming. The teachers and principle went above and beyond to help him excel. Mr Celock has been the best teacher my child has had throughout his school career. I can not say enough good things about him. Thank you to all at Fairborn Intermediate for being great role models and doing great jobs.

    Our children went through the Fairborn School system with excellent results went on to make A's in top notch colleges and graduate school. We are anticipating the same for our grandchildren.

    Overall Fairborn City Schools are a disappointment. The structure of the schools k in one building 1-3 in another down separate halls as if separate schools the separation of 4-5 grades as if these small children were teenagers or young adults then a middle schools who's terrors I have only been told about and a HS graduating students who read at the 9th grade level. Of all of my experiences with the schools I have met several teachers who deserve applause - Ms. Call(k) Ms. Jones (4th) Mr. Reiley (4th). For the most part these 6 hour a day classes with the emphasis on teacher satisfaction providing teacher training and inservice during school hours and at the tax payer expense 1-2 times a month and little by way of a shared community experience are the darkest blemish on the City of Fairborn's overall evaluation. If you have small children and want a good education at a fair price do not bring them here.

    After being disappointed with the primary school and the middle school I am happy to find that the itnermediate school is okay. My son's teacher cares about him and the school seems to be more dedicated to the success of their students than others in the district.

    Excellent school and staff-hometown values in a warm and friendly environment. Cutting edge curriculum and attention to testing-highly recommend!!

    My child currently attends this school I am very impressed with his teacher and the school system. He is in a gifted program that meets once a week and has been excellent unlike most schools budget cuts did not effect the gifted program. We transferred from a private school and have had a great experience. The saftey issues mentioned with the busses had to do with not getting a stop changed to directly infront of the parents house from down the street. True the superintendent did not address or intertain these issues.

    I don't know who is writing these reviews but they are obviously not being fair in their evaluation. I have had nothing but a great experience with the teachers and the admininstration. The parents who are complaining are typically the ones not involved with their children or the community and like to complain about everything and everyone. The quality of teachers is very high at Fairborn. I have spoke to parents from other districts like Beavercreek Centerville and they are all impressed with the energy and the high value instruction that their children are receiving.

    We had a safety issue with the school buses. No one would address all the way up to the Superintendent. We never even got a phone call back from the Supt or School Board. He never replied to e-mails phone calls or letters. At all. Neither did the school board. We ultimately took our kids out of the Fairborn Schools because they didn't care about safety on the buses for us!

    We took our kids out of this school. We can't tell you how horrible the environment was in this school! Fairborn Schools have deteriorated terribly since our new Board and Administration have been here.

    With the district cutbacks in Fairborn I have found this school to be very disorganized and my son's fourth grade teacher to be distracted and uncaring. I have attempted to seek more interest in my son from his teacher but have seen an unwillingness to educate him. I never thought MY kid would be ignored at school or that my requests for interest would be ignored by his educator. We will not be attending Fairborn City Schools next year as a direct result of this situation.

    Excellent Preschool Program! Parent involvement is better in this school than most I have visited. Principal seems more active with students in higher grades. Teachers are excellent!
