    Our kids got a great education there especially in the arts

    Fisher School staff and parents go out of their way to provide a great school experience for 'all kids'. Although like most schools there is to much emphasis on mcas test prep. the overall school community does the 'great stuff' towards educating the 'whole child'. It is amazing what they do on such a limited school budget. Ms. Waddlen grade 5 as my child would put it rocks. She made a huge impression on my child. Overall Kids count at Fisher and they (all teachers and support staff) get that! Great principle leadership also helps.

    Fisher Elementary School is a superior school no matter how you analyze it. The parent and teacher involvement and communication is excellent and the children feel safe and loved within its walls. A child can only flourish under those conditions.
