    Fuqua is a caring close-knit and safe school. I have two girls who attended Kindergarten and 3rd grade. They loved their teachers learned a ton and felt very secure every day.

    Horrible.... send your child somewhere else! Teachers just care about their paychecks. Well behind other schools in the area. Check I-STEP scores.

    This school is a amazing school. The teachers care about the students and the kids love to go there. They are really passionate on parent and teacher involvement.
