Discover This School

Our mission is to provide students with high academic standards in an environment that validates their culture and their potential. As part of our commitment to social justice and equity, we commit to providing appropriate support and services to all of our students. We are a group of committed educators who work collaboratively in order to deliver a rigorous standards-based curriculum using instructional practices that promote higher levels of learning. We promote and teach the values of bilingualism, biliteracy, and multiculturalism—all 21st century skills. We believe that providing students a dual Spanish immersion program and opportunity to learn in two languages will help them better understand each other. We believe in enabling and empowering children and their families to succeed by utilizing all school resources when the need arises. We seek to deliver on our promise to educate the whole child through academic content and enrichment activities in order to achieve success in a global society.

Students, staff, and parents identify our extracurricular activities (Capoeira, Ballet Folklorico, drama, art, gardening, field trips, schoolwide celebrations and festivals) as contributing to adventurous learning and creating joyful students. Additionally, our use of student-centered behavior support programs creates a safe, stable environment. Fairmount enjoys a close working relationship with the after-school program, Growth and Learning Organization (GLO).The GLO staff works closely with Fairmount staff to ensure extended learning opportunities. GLO includes not only homework assistance, but everyday enrichment activities that including science, arts and crafts, music, cooking, sports, nutrition, theater, gardening, and leadership. Fairmount and GLO work hand-in-hand to create relationships amongst and between all school events. We believe in promoting creativity, and we value diversity.
