I have a daughter in 5th grade and we've been very happy with FIS.

I love working at Fairhope Intermediate! We work hard to make FIS the best! I am so thankful to work among such incredible, inspiring teachers who are passionate about helping mold these children into smart, well-rounded, and respectful citizens. We love what we do and we love our students!

As a student at FIS, I am very displeased. The teachers spend half their time speaking of behavior and self conduct, rather than teaching. Self behavior is something that should be taught by parents, not teachers. Also, teachers' learning programs are fast-paced and are guided on their belief of how quickly they think you should learn it. They don't take the time to make sure each student understands the material before moving on. This raises my next issue, which is the amount of students in each class. The ratio of students to teachers(not including special Ed, electives, PE, and Gifted Ed) is 31-36/1. This is amazingly high, causing the previously mentioned lack of assurance that everyone understands. Another issue I have found is the repetition of material. Each year the teachers have taught us practically the same lessons, with minor changes (such as the name of the material, their approach on teaching it, etc.). It is as if the same education standards were set for each grade. My final issue is hygiene. We have outstanding janitors, but even Mrs.Broughton says we don't have enough of them. She has not done anything about this. Because of all of this, I can't wait to leave it.

This school is horrible. Not just this one but all the fairhope schools. My kids come home crying not because of other students but because of the teachers. They treat the students bad and talk down to them. I moved to fairhope because I was told the schools were great. I regret moving my kids and putting them in these schools.

I moved away from Fairhope because of the schools. Many people who were raised in the area consider Fairhope schools the benchmark for others to follow. That reputation is undeserved, elitist and not supported by statistics. Unfortunately, a lot of the deluded ideas of superiority come from the principals. Especially at the intermediate school, reputation was the main focus. I have lived in five states. My children fortunately have attended some truly (and statistically) excellent schools (zoning for high schools in the top 100 in the nation). In Fairhope, gifted is a social club for the children of mothers in the PTA. I watched my children's progress stagnate. The classes are overcrowded. My 4th grader had 34 in her class, four of whom who were severly autistic with a new teacher. There are bullying issues that are ignored. At break, students are not allowed to run, play sports and there isn't at ground equipment of any kind. They are allowed to eat and gossip. In PE there was assigned seating so students can listen to safety lectures. In addition on Fridays, snow cones are sold in PE class! I very much prefer the communities of Spanish Fort and Daphne. Fairhope is very cliquey.
