    I am still kind of sketchy about Frayser. I really didn't want to send my kids there but I had a hard time getting a hardship transfer for a school in the area and McFerran was full so it was either Frayser or keep them at Smyrna which is entirely too far! I have an 8 yr old and a 6 yr old that went there last school year and now my 5 yr old will be starting there this school year. I liked my children's teachers but I did notice that there wasn't very much patience with a lot of the staff. Some things like family activities and the things my children learned were definitely a plus but I am not sure what extra curricular activities they offer advanced programs and even PTA meetings. I paid for 2 memberships but never heard anything about the meetings... I'm not sure if I will keep them there or not. I really hate to transfer them AGAIN! =(

    Save your child now. If your thinking of this school for your child please think of other schools in the area. This school is a joke along with the staff at this school. Not only is the school a joke there is no music program for the children. And there is no sports at this school they can't offer your children what other schools in the area can offer them.

    I have been very pleased with Frayser so far my son has been there for 2 years the only complaint I have is they have no advanced classes. I see so many bright students and I think they need more advancement oppurtunities. I do think the teachers and principal are doing very well but I think more interaction from the parents would do a world of good.
