Welcome to Fairview Elementary School! I am excited that you are visiting our webpage. I hope that you find the page informative as you learn about our wonderful school! It is our mission to provide your students the best educational experience as you partner with us in their education.

Our learning environment is extremely inviting and we strive to offer your students an atmosphere that nurtures and supports their educational journey. We have a staff that is highly trained and supportive.

Our school’s population is diverse. We have over 300 students that come from a variety of socio-economic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. To meet the individual needs of our students we offer a variety of programs. Additional support is provided through Special Education and Intervention Services, while enrichment is offered through the Accelerated Curriculum and Technology (ACT). We also offer classes in Art, Music, Physical Education, Library and Technology. We are a Spanish Immersion school. Our Spanish Immersion classes begin in Kindergarten. We are currently in our third year as our program goes from kindergarten to second grade. Third and fourth grade will be added over the next two years. Students are immersed in the language and culture as half their day is spent being taught in Spanish (Math, Science, Spanish Literacy and Writing) and the other half of their day taught in English (Reading, Social Studies, and Writing). We have a wonderful chorus that has performed at a variety of events. We are a Leader in Me School and our students are taught the 7 Habits through weekly lessons as well as the skills being infused in everything we do as a school.

A key factor to the success of our school is parent involvement. Our Parent Teacher Organization is active and meets monthly. It helps to coordinate parent volunteer efforts which support our instructional program, and organize fundraising and community-building events. We welcome any support that you can give us in volunteering in the classroom, as presenters and members of our Parent Lighthouse Committee. We truly believe in the home-school connection, the more we can collaborate, the better it is for our students.

Thank you again for your interest in Fairview Elementary and if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at 302-672-1645 or at melissa.white@capital.k12.de.us.
