Welcome to Fairview Elementary

At Fairview Elementary School, we have a strong focus on meeting individual student needs every day through teacher collaboration, enrichment and intervention. We provide learning experiences that promote creativity, collaboration, curiosity and critical thinking, equipping students to successfully and responsibly navigate an ever-changing world. Fairview Elementary School grows every child every day.
The bulk of the current Fairview School building was completed in the fall of 1990. It replaced the original 1926 structure. In the early 2000s, 9 more classrooms and an addition to the Media Center were completed to accommodate growth in student numbers. Most recently, our Blue Hall was renovated in 2018-19 to create new 1st and 2nd grade classrooms. Future plans include yet another addition.
