My son attended the new Annie Fisher STEM magnet from its opening in 2010 (first grade) and finished up there this past May (third grade.) During that time he was challenged supported redirected and celebrated. He was above grade level and was given opportunities to be with the older kids for reading and math but he was always made to feel like he belonged with all peer groups. The teachers knew me personally and communicated openly and frequently. I felt that my son was safe and that my values were reinforced by every teacher and support staff even the after-care providers. We were all very proud when AF STEM was awarded a National Blue Ribbon this past year. We moved to the other side of the state and that's the only reason we left this great school.

i think this school has some very unprofessional teachers. Some teachers are very professional and are willing to help out the kids who come to school in stress and dont walk around with that attitude. And im speaking for the Middle schoolers.
My daughter has been with this school since kindergarten. After the 2nd grade the teachers don't seem to care anymore therefore the children are not being challenged to their potential. Annie Fisher never use to be like this. It was a good school but I'm not sure what's happening now. I pray and hope that they get their act together soon.
My kids have been going to this school for the past 3yrs. So far they have been doing well. My concern with the school is that they just became a Magnet School and most of the kids are still adjusting to the new standards my kids as well. Overall I like the changes that are being made at Annie Fisher and I just hope that the students will eventually adapt! I also hope that the faculty and staff at the school can implement the changes without confusion by keeping the parents updated.
