CAR RIDER AND BUS RIDER. THE CAR LINE IS NOT LIKE OTHER SCHOOLS I KNOW. THEY ASK THE NAME OF THE STUDENT THEY ARE WAITING FOR AND THEN JUST LET THE KIDS IN THE CAR. NEVER ONCE ASKED FOR ID OR ANY TYPE OF SYSTEM. KIDS GETTING ON THE DIFFERENT BUSES ( ESP IF SUBS THAT DAY) I JUST THINK THEY CAN DO BETTER.. WHEN IT COMES TO END OF THE DAY RELEASE

I've had students in this school for 9 years & am very happy with our experience. Fishers Elementary has always been ranked 9 or 10 on Great Schools and I'm shocked to see this 6 ranking. If you look at the details for their score, they've been hammered in their "Equity Overview" because students of color are not performing as well on standardized tests. Although this is an important issue, keep in mind that only 6% of the school is represented in this achievement gap. Because the number of students is so small, it may not show a full picture. I've had students with learning differences and students who were in advanced classes and all had great experiences. We originally started at a local private school, but the education at Fishers Elementary is better for my students. Don't let this one bad score keep you from sending your children to Fishers Elementary. Even if there was an achievement gap with some students, I'm sure it will be quickly addressed.

The 1 star review from January 17, 2014 is out-of-date and from another year, not 2014. Fishers Elementary has had a new principal since 2012 - and he is a parent himself and is amazing. I agree that the school is not much to look at from the outside, but inside, it is a positive and friendly environment. Our child loves it and enjoys coming to school each day. The teachers are wonderful - they make learning fun and truly care about each child, often going above and beyond. We are thankful to be here!

My son attended kindergarten at this school and we were EXTREMELY disappointed in the experience. The Principal does not have children of her own and runs the school in a way that is NO FUN for the kids. The kids were expected to remain completely quiet in the hallways and at lunch. I remember visiting the school and thinking how somber it seemed. My son HATED going to school here. On his first day of school, they wouldn't allow the parents to walk the kids into their classroom and get them situated. He was very nervous and lost and came home saying he hated his new school. His teacher was very young and inexperienced. All of the teachers seemed to live in fear of the principal and were focused on test scores more than their students. Not somewhere I'd want my kids to go to school. Let kids be kids and make school fun for a change. Yuck!!!
