There is good reason this school gets a 3 rating. There is poor overall leadership at this school which impacts quality. The district itself is struggling. Too bad the university next door is not making more of an impact like University of Washington does on education in Seattle.

We have 2 children at this school & have had nothing but a wonderful experience. The teachers are attentive caring & put the kids' education first & foremost. We have music PE art & a great SUN program. The kids are happy! Our principal is our biggest cheerleader & has blossomed our relationship with Concordia University.
I have a second grader at Faubion and we have been happy with her overall experience. Her teachers are caring and have been attentive to her education needs. The administrative staff has done an amazing job to offer a wide variety of enrichments to our students. We have a great after school program and an active community. Our students are offered a lot of extracurricular activities despite being a Title I school. I'd love to see more music education at our school and maybe some more Latino/a cultural education but overall we are happy our daughter is a Faubion Bulldog.
The Student Manager is awful towards the students. His method of teaching is intimidation and fear. I was/am extremely uncomfortable with this approach. Other teachers have been wonderful however.
I do not see how this school received so many stars.As a parent like many parents of children that go to that school I am highly concerned.the second grade has 40 children in one class. And the bullying gets worse every year.Not to mention children wait outside in the cold unchaperoned before breakfast.It breaks my heart to see things like that and have my child go to a place like that.That is why I am pulling out. Sincerely a concerned parent
The principal is amazing the kids are active learners and self-motivated the staff and faculty are friendly helpful and brilliant. The aesthetics of the school are pretty great also!
The staff and teachers at Faubion are dedicated to the students and their education.
My son is just finishing Kindergarten and has had a great learning experience with a motivated and caring teacher. The new principal is hardworking and making changes to really improve Faubion. The staff and teachers really go above and beyond and their passion for their profession is evident. The after school SUN program is one of the best in the PPS with a wide variety of activities for the students. Faubion even has a rock wall installed with funds from SUN and the PTA. The only negative is the lack of parental involvement. Faubion could be even better with more volunteers in the classroom and in the PTA.
I have concerns about overall school safety. There does not appear to be sufficient supervision on playground or before and after school. I would like to see more teachers holding students accountable for their behaviors. As Faubion's model is transitioning to a PreK-8 I feel it is vital to stress the importance of appropriate behaviors.
Wow we love Faubion school. Our daughter is in second grade and is exceeding in all ways. We contribute it to the team of teachers she has had since Kindergarten and the Principal.
My son spent hopefully one year at this school. The after school (sun) program is wonderful. Many choices great programs but remember it is first-come-first-serve you may not get what you want. My son was in a combined 4th grade class room with 52 other student
My son was at Faubion for first grade. I should have pulled him out as the work was incredibly boring he had a brand new teacher that could not control the classroom or create interesting assignments. There were definite discipline issues in his classroom that were not handled appropriately by the teacher or the administration.
This school is great! I have two children here and they love it! The teachers are very caring and the principal is one of a kind. Two thumbs up!
