    my 9 year old daughter Brie-Ann attends this school and has since she started school. She loves the school a lot and has a lot of friends and caring people around her. Have had a few minor bumps along the way this year but working with the school to work them out.

    We are new to this school and the district. My child has a reading disability and some anxiety as a result. On the first day of school the school counselor listened to my concerns about my daughter and immediately realized that she had been placed with the wrong teacher. She immediately moved her to a different classroom and as we were introduced to the new teacher she let my daughter know that she will be available for her anytime she needed it. The new teacher was a much better fit for my daughter and she is happy! I know that I NEVER would have gotten such a fast and positive response from our old school. I am VERY impressed with not only the counselor (Ms. Kelly) but the entire process. I am so happy that we are part of this awesome school!!

    There are still some bad teachers here but I'm glad to see they finally rid themselves of two of the worst. They could do more at FCES to differentiate instruction... focus is on those who are struggling but those who could do more are often left twiddling their thumbs. This is largely due to oversize classes so I can't completely fault the instructors.

    Amazing school! Principle strives for small community atmosphere making it feel warm and welcoming to children and parents. Great teachers! We couldn't be happier!

    Lovely school in a growing community. Growth is pushing academic standards but at the expense of intimate and small classroom sizes. Active PTSA after school activities abound.

    This is an awesome school that does not get the reputation it deserves. People think Lake Washington schools are better but that is only because they haven't researched or visited Fall City Elementary. The teachers administration and parents are heavily invested in creating a school for learning success. I have not met a single parent that has a negative thing to say.

    There is not a more wonderful place for children to grow and thrive. I have had two children go through FCES and couldn't have been happier. The staff the administriation the community....wow!

    An elementary education teacher who spent his career teaching teachers to teach once told me you can tell a good elementary school just by walking into it. Walk into Fall City Elementary School and you can feel the enthusiasm. The teachers are all dedicated bright and effective. Encounter almost any parent with a student in this school and they will go on and on about the virtues of the school. People move into the district to send their children here. If that isn't a good recommendation what is?

    My son started Fall City Elem. almost 3 years ago off to kindergarden he went without any preschool introduction to social interaction with other children. As his parents we were very nervous (more than he). Fortunately Fall City Elem. welcomed him and has norished his reading and handwriting skills. In the first grade his teacher Mrs. Shank was able to recognize that he was struggling and arranged for him (with our consent of course) to be placed into a special reading time with 3 or 4 other children as well as a reading teacher.There he got the one on one attention his reading abilities were lacking. My son is 3/4 of the way thru the 2nd grade now and is one of the strongest readers in his class. We his parents are so thankful and appreciative of the early intervention that could have really hindered his progress then and even now not to mentioned he is aware of his acheivements and strives to better his abilities because of the positive reinforcement at school as well as at home. Thankyou Mrs. Shank for being a teacher who is actually there for the child and your recognition of each childs needs. Fall city elem. is a wonderful school and I will make sure that my two younger children go there and follow in their brothers footsteps!
