    my kids goes to fields i love this school and teacher response also clean and organize

    School is horrible. Kindergarten teachers need to find a new career they are not capable of nurturing the minds of our future generations. They blame the kids when they need to look in the mirror to see their own incompetence.

    I loved this samll school. The teachers were great. I wish all my children could have gone to school at Fields. Very safe and loving environment.

    I would like to say its a very nice school and very teachers and has become even better with having Ms. Martinez as principal she care for students and parents she goes a long way to know them by name. We need more principals like her and teachers. Kids feels so welcome and lots of things to do. My child was there from kinder till 5th grade of 1999. So I highly recomend this school the best of an elemtary.
