The overall Great Schools rating reflects aggregate test scores that are negatively influenced by the above average population of special needs students some of which move into the school district because of Fisher's reputation for strong support services & inclusion. Fisher has some amazing teachers and small classroom sizes (10-12 students) which services all students in providing them with a strong education that is certainly above average for a public school. They also have excellent in-school programs for music and art as well as an after-school activities program offering different electives. My primary suggestion for improvement would be for them to change and strengthen their math curriculum. Overall this public school has earned and deserves an above average rating.

this school is wonderfull. I have 3 special needs children that started out in Fisher. My oldest is in the high school and is on the honor roll. My middle child is off the IEP and is doing exceptional work. He is reading and doing math at 2 grade levels above his grade and my youngest is getting all the help he needs to succed in school. I have 1 more at home with a learning disability and I can't wait to have him join the Fisher family.These are all adopted children with a lot of trama doing well in a school full of love for childern.
thia school whips out learning and does it fast so many students don't really learn and forget what they learned ;
We have a son in Kindergarten. The principal and teachers have gone out of their way to welcome our family to the school. I am impressed by the ability to contact the principal and the teacher with ease.
Great School. Teaching staff excellent. New princiapl and new reading and match curruiculum moving things in a positive direction. Middle level and High School very solid.
