    Robert C. Fisler is an incredible school. My daughter is in first grade and she is leaps and bounds ahead of her friends that attend schools in other areas. She is always challenged to learn and to strive for excellence. She is positively encouraged with just the right emphasis on behavior and leadership. Possibly the most well-balanced teaching techniques available in the public school system.

    I attended this school since its openings from 2004-2010 all the way up until high school. Prior to the hiring of Principal Lai Principal Pierce led our school and truly made our school the shining standard for elementary and junior high schools in Orange County. I excelled here with ease but I could not say that with confidence had I not had for the most part truly competent teachers that both made classroom learning a joy and intensive. There is no room for incompetence here-we Navigators have quickly risen through the rankings as an excellent school and the huge waitlist of students wishing to attend here is simple proof of that. While I have heard Principal Lai is not as competent or brilliant as her predecessor was I am aware most of the core teachers that were in effect when I attended are still there. That fact alone gives me great hope in the school's tradition of excellence and great achievement. This is a school you want to send your kids to. The only reason why I left off a star is merely personal-I feel the behavioral guidelines were a little too strict on the students feeling almost like a private school but nevertheless they did not hamper my experience.

    My children have nearly completed Kindergarten in this school and I am AMAZED by how much they have learned and grown since the beginning of the year. All of the teachers are caring and there is a very strong and supportive academic environment at the school. True the school doesn't have a lot of diversity -- my kids are part of the "minority" -- but they have no problem making friends and fitting in.

    I'm writing in response to the few bogus 1 star reviews clearly aimed only to lower this school's rating. Read those bad reviews and you'll clearly see that they have been written in spite offers nothing of positive value does not include facts nor examples and uses spam tactics. This person must not see the value of educating their kid(s) if they use that time to fabricate a false review for a top school. Both my kids attend Fisler K-8 and I am very happy with the quality of their education. All the teachers have been caring attentive and helpful to both my kids. The principal is very personable and can be seen every morning roaming the campus and interacting with students and parents. She seems to truly care about each child and is interested in meeting parents. Their technology program is amazing because all of the kids are provided with great tools. The positive environment at Fisler is felt at home when I see my kids learning and willing to do their homework. It is a wonderful thing when I see my kids' progress and excitement for learning!

    Just because this school uses laptop that doesn't mean that this school is advanced. I personally hate this school becuase they keep making a big deal about stuff.The thing i hate the most is that the principal is very mean. She makes a big deal about lunch lines even though you don't cut she goes around telling everyone to back up. She keeps blocked these websites that people enjoy. I really don't get her if there was a vote of saying do you want to keep this principal everyone will say no. I wish teachers give us the power to vote to say yes or no about this principal. -From a student from fisler.

    My children had a wonderful kindergarten experience in Kindergarten and the First grade. The teacher's were phenomenal. However I feel my child did not have a great experience in the second grade. Teachers should act as a guide mentor friend and confidante helping the student navigate their school experience and providing support both academically and emotionally. I felt my child's teacher did not meet this criteria. No additional support was provided to help achieve personal and academic support. I still support this school rating as excellent. I am hopeful my child will have a better experience next year.

    It's an exceptional school and all the teachers meet my expectations! The technology is great and a clever way to help students learn. Overall the school is an awesome school.

    My child is being provided with a safe and stimulating environment. As a parent I am satisfied with my son's academic progress. He is excelling in all his subjects and I am very pleased.

    Poor principal she only cares about high academic scores and laptop. Teachers are requesting too much donations for class needs and a lot of favoritism going on in class. Parents are too much involved in school some of them actually runs the school. Overall school is out of control.

    Wow where you do start? The Fisler staff really does care about our two kids - one is in the elementary and one in the middle school age groups. We appreciate the technology integration and how it clearly is helping our kids be better prepared for high school and college. As for the laptop program we were delighted to participate - knowing we'd likely make the investment regardless of whether the school offered it. While the area in Fullerton is not very ethnically diverse our kids are actually part of the 'minority' and enjoy the cultural learning opportunities.

    This is one of the highest academically rated schools in California as well as the US. The were able to achieve that by giving students a higher caliber of learning and helping all the students score phenomenally on their tests. Any parent looking to get their children into a school that helps them advance into the skills that will be relevant for their future in college as well as their professional careers should consider sending their child to a school such as Fisler that has technology integration and more aggressive curriculum. I myself have worked for large dot com companies and the advancement of technology will make or break a persons career. Do your child some justice and give them the opportunity to integrate technology into their studies.

    Poor principal school focus is on laptops and making the school a showplace for guests rather than a place for our children to learn and enjoy themselves.

    The parent involvement student engagement and teacher collaboration is so high here. I have never seen this kind of team effort at a school before!

    Very pleased with the school. Love the laptop program I truly do believe it gives the kids a leg up in presenting their thoughts through technology. Someone brought up the issue of diversity and lack there of. Its not any different from the school that is 65% caucasian and 35% other ethnicity. It just so happens that at this place its 65% asian and 35% other ethnicity. Transferred from private school to here educational environment much better.

    My three sons are attending this school and this far they love it one teacher in particular is outstanding and my twins are in love with her (1st grade). My son who is in K-loves his teacher also more than I can say about the previous school. I try to visit the school once a week what I see puts me to rest. However I too see very little diversity!

    The school will be going on to its 3rd year this coming Sept and I feel that they have done a great job. They really care about the students and teachers are energetic and eager to teach. Students in turn will enjoy attending school.

    Not enough ethnic diversity.
