    I love Fain! The staff and teachers are wonderful and my daughter loves the school as well. I moved to another district and did the CHOICE program so that my daughter could remain at Fain.

    Fain Elementary is wonderful the teachers and staff are very much like a family. They work with my grandchild that I am a parent to in their problem areas in learning and the SOAR program works wonderful with the conduct of all the students not just a few. Fain's Principal Vice Principal and school councilor are there for you always. Their door is always open to hear what any parent/grandparent/guardian has concerns about or if you just want to talk knock on the door and your warmly welcomed into their office. You can stop them in the halls and talk they are there to help you in any way they can. If they don't have the answer they will find out for you. They will help you solve any problems with your student teacher and other staff members. They are wonderful!

    I appreciate some of the educators @ Fain however my child has struggled with reading & even though he is taken to Basic Skills weekly I do not feel that his teachers are as concerned as I am. It is frustrating when a parent voices a concern & you get the famous teacher quote 'his doing great just hang in there'. This might be fine for some parents but I would like some direction. No one @ this school is willing to provide any information concerning summer schools tutoring programs ect. The only tutoring the Basic Skills teacher providers is summer tutoring & you pay her for something she should of provided our children all year long.

    I would like to take the time to express my gradatude and appreciation for Fain Elementary. Before my child became a student here he was struggling in his classes and wasn't thrilled with school all together. Now that he's enrolled in this school he's very excited about classand loves going every morning! His grades are improving and he has a hunger for knowledge! His teachers are wonderful well educated and are great role models!
