Fairview Elementary School promotes high academic achievement in a safe and positive learning environment. Our curriculum has a balanced literacy approach, emphasizes the use of technology and provides full-time art, music and physical education programs and Project Lead The Way programming. Fairview is a partnership of families, staff, and community that educates students in grades K4 to 8. We celebrate the diversity of our population and the uniqueness of each individual through a multi-cultural curriculum. Parents and families actively participate in the decisions we make to improve student success. Our assessment scores are at or above district and state levels. We are committed to preparing all students with 21st century skills that will allow them to attain their career and/or college goals. Learning to ride a bike is a critical skill for children. Children of all abilities gain physical strength, improved cardiovascular health, and a new ability to explore and interact with the world around them. Children with special needs, in particular, benefit from an increased range of motion and better trunk control--skills that can provide a better overall quality of life by making it easier for children to bathe, dress themselves, and participate in school and home activities. - Ann Terrll, MPS Foundation Director
