    What a wonderful school! I have nothing but great things to say - the teachers are truly dedicated. The kids REALLY learn and the administration's dedication to student safety is wonderful. The bilingual program is excellent and let me just say that the Gifted program (run by Ms. Mendoza and Ms. Bermudez) is simply the best for helping your child excel. They are such dedicated excellent teachers and should be commended. This school has good kids great teachers (there is not one that my kids have had that has not been excellent) and has been an A school for the past 10 years. What more can you ask for? Very happy with this school!

    I have had nothing but a wonderful experience since my child has attended Fairlawn Elementary. She has learned so much in such a short amount of time due to the exceptional teachers that they have there! TY

    Great school. Excellent Teachers and superb Administration. Want to specifically thank Mrs. Grabiel for her hard work and dedication in preparing her students for the FCAT. My daughter was very fortunate to have such a great caring teacher. She is one of the few teachers that really make a difference in our children's life and will always be treasured. Our children at Fairlawn are extremely lucky to have such a great teacher.

    Fairlawn Elementary is an excellent school. I hope hte county's financial state does not take away the principal and teacher's motivation to do what is best for the students. I would like to mention Ms. Valladares and Ms Llerena for their dedication to their job and also Ms Mashie Downs for her musical talent and the motivation she transmits to the children who are in the music program. Maintaining this program in Fairlawn or any other school must be in the hearts and minds of those who care about our children and our communities.

    This school year was quite difficult because third grade is a challenging grade because of the FCAT. I want to thank Mrs. Kohn for doing such a wonderful job in helping my daughter reach her maximum potential. She went above and beyond by tutoring her during her planning time so that she could do her very best. Thank you for your dedication. Fairlawn is simply the best!

    Yes I agree - the middle schools in the area are nowhere near the level of safety and dedication that Fairlawn is at. How terrible to think that our children will go from an A school Elementary to a lower grading middle school that has issues. This is one of my biggest worries even though my children have a few years to go still...

    Fairlawn Elementary is a great school because they have great teachers. Among the greatest teachers are Ms Davis Ms Santamarina Ms Canamero Ms Hernandez Ms Grabiel Ms Caruso and a special mention must go to Ms Barber who takes her teaching career and motivation very seriously. My two daughters attend this school since Kindergarten and are still there. I am concern about the Middle Schools in the area since one of them is doing her last year at Fairlawn....

    This is an excellent school. The principal is excellent as well as the teachers and all staff. My kids are currently in the bilingual program and it's great. Mrs. Santamarina Mrs. Davis Mrs.Barber Mrs.Grabiel and Mrs.Kohn have all been exceptional teachers. There are many extra curricular activities such as tennis soccer ballet guitar judo etc...It has also been an A school for many years and the school is considered 3rd in the district. I am very lucky to have my kids attend this school.

    My children went to Fairlawn Elementary from 1994 until 2006. The teachers are educated involved and have dynamic creativity. The students are middle class mostly hispanic descent bilingual and ready to learn. I have never heard of a fight between students or criminal acts. The Music Department is excellent quality as is the Gifted. The bilingual program which began 4 years ago is a wonderful way to keep the children interested in their roots and give them a strong second language. It is an A rated school but as a parent I rate it A+. My children are well-rounded teenagers and pre-teens and I owe that to Fairlawn.

    Very good school the administrative staff is friendly and helpful. My son misses this school where he went until second grade. They work individually with each student. The Spanish teachers Mrs. Cabrera and others like Mrs. Aguirre and Mrs. Ros are excellent teachers who help my child reach his maximum potential.
