So far I have been very happy with the staff and community at this school. Really fun to be able to walk on campus and see so many parents that care for their kids. :-)
BEWARE: This school might be in Pleasant Hill but there is nothing Pleasant Hill about it. If you are considering moving in the area or putting your child in the school DO NOT DO IT!!!!! My daughter is struggling to catch up barely a month in at her middle school because of her three years at Fair Oaks. I can't tell you one thing she learned while attending. They don't give homework because most of the kids don't do it. The trouble makes disrupt the classes so they pretty much run the classrooms. Bullying is a huge problem that rarely gets addressed. The principal does little to solve the issue. This school is worse than Cambridge Elementary down the street.
I currently have four children at Fair Oaks, in Kindergarten, Second, Fourth, and Fifth grades. They are all having a fabulous year academically and socially. I have found the teachers to be excellent and effective. The leadership, especially the principal Mr. Jon Pierce, are friendly and approachable. Mr. Pierce really takes the time to get to know the students and their parents, and is active in the school community and events. The grounds aren't fancy, but they are clean, well kept, and inviting. My children have many opportunities for enrichment like instrumental music and science fair. The school regularly has community events like Star Night that brought out members from a local astronomy group and their many telescopes so we could see the heavens. The geographic location means the school has many English language learners, so that might skew the test scores. Don't let this deter you from sending your child(ren) to Fair Oaks, however. They will receive a good, solid education and school experience.
My two children were transfered to fair oaks this year because i moved. they are ajusting well and enjoying every minute that they spend there. the only downfall is that they have to take a bus but other than that the staff is nice and the teacher parent meeting i had today went well . they are trying to help in everyway they can. i believe because fair oaks is a small school they do not qualify for all of the scholorships that the other schools do so they dont have as much but they do stick together and do a AWESOME JOB WITH THE KIDS...
