Fairmount School is a dynamic learning community where professional staff and parents work together to provide a positive environment for our students to learn and grow. Dedicated teachers and staff deliver a well rounded standards based curriculum in child-centered classrooms aimed at meeting the needs of all students.
Fairmount School has an active PTA which provides enhancements to our student’s overall school experience. Through their staunch efforts the PTA provides technological and curricular resources, cultural and fine arts programs, curricular based field trips, as well as special school and community events.
The faculty and staff at Fairmount value the partnership that we have with our parents and the PTA in providing a positive school experience for our students. We hope this website will give our parents insight into our school’s programming, provide timely information, and foster effective communication.
