I have a 4th and 5th grader at fawcett, I feel like we've stepped into hell everyday. Both of my children are being physically bullied with no help from administrators. I never imagined that there were schools this bad, my child is now crying and saying he's sick because he's scared of his school.

We are extremely disappointed in Fawcett Elementary. Our child has been a student for nearly two years, and has Asperger's but is in Gen Ed, with an IEP. During his first year, we learned that the administration never formally followed his IEP instructions until they "accidentally" found it in April. After several apologies, we decided to give them one more chance. Sadly this year was no different; and the new school psychologist (who did not even know my child until 2 weeks before his IEP renewal meeting!) feels that she has sufficient info to not grant another one after one brief observation, despite his neurologist's, teacher's and our recommendations that he continue to have one. Additionally, she was lecturing and passive-aggressively bullying the other faculty attendees during this meeting, yet the principal did nothing to stop her behavior. I have never seen a school official treat other employees so unprofessionally and with such disrespect. From our perspective, it seems like they are taking away the IEP to either hide or diminish the school's oversight, not because of a lack of need. We will not be back next year, and will not recommend Fawcett to any other parents.

My 1st grader and 5th grader have been attending Fawcett since Oct 2010. This school is absolutely aweful! My 1st grader is advanced in reading and etc and is being held back so the rest of the class can catch up and isn't allowed to move on. My 5th grader is in special education and is consistently bullied out at recess by the general education students. He's hit often and innapropriate comments are often thrown at him. He's often punished for the bullies actions. The principal is often confused about what's going on or doesn't seem to care and often gives an "oh well" remark to the issues involving the students at her school. I reccomend if your a parent of a advanced student or a student of special needs do not go to this school. You can find a better school elsewhere!
