Our son has attended Fairmont private school Anaheim Hills for 5 years. He absolutely loves the school and staff. Our Campus Director, Ms Bone, puts the children's needs first. She is, by far, the most caring, compassionate, and professional campus administrator we have ever met. We are blessed to have her as a leader at our campus. Fairmont integrates ethics into their teaching standards, emphasizes the importance of values, and builds leaders through each of their classes and lessons. The teachers are a great encouragement. His current teacher, Mrs Cornish, is our son's favorite teacher ever. She is compassionate and genuinely cares about her students, going above and beyond to make sure that her students achieve their highest potential. We love her. We can honestly say that the academic program is second to none.

My son attended Fairmont Private School in North Tustin from first through the sixth grade. It was the best educational environment I could have chosen. The curriculum was a year to two years ahead of the public school, even when compared to their GATE program. The kids in his class were extremely bright. My son was not even close to being the brightest. Yet, he left there, graduated first in his high school class at Orange Lutheran, graduated summa cum laude at a top university, and completed medical school all by age 25. He is now a resident at UCLA but will tell you that he was never challenged academically more than he was during his years at Fairmont and was never surrounded by a brighter group of kids than his classmates at Fairmont. Academically, it was excellent and it was a safe environment where kids respected authority and each other.

We feel incredibly blessed to have found Fairmont North Tustin. We had been looking for an educational home for our two kids, who are both brilliant in their own ways but very different from one another. Fairmont recognizes and nurtures the strengths and talents of each of our kids, while helping to challenge them in the ways they need to grow. Fairmont values not only academic enrichment, but social and emotional development as well -- turning out kids who not only have a superior knowledge base, but a foundation of character and values. The administration is accessible and actually listens to the parents; and we have had 3 phenomenal teachers out of 3 (one of whom I was a room parent for, and has known my son since he was 4, and has become a family friend). There is a warm and wonderful parent community, who support each other and truly enrich the environment, and who we look forward to seeing on campus. Both of our kids are academically challenged, but more than that -- they're happy. And as parents, with admittedly incredibly high standards, so are we.

I attended Fairmont North Tustin for junior high. My teachers were amazing, and helped me discover my strengths and talents. They set me up to be successful for high school, college, and beyond. Now, 11 years later, I am back as a part of the school faculty. I have been given the opportunity to give back to the school that gave me so much. The number one goal at Fairmont North Tustin is to provide each child with the best possible education experience. Every member of the campus, including administrators, teachers, and staff, share this vision. It empowers us all to put the child first in every decision we make. I am lucky to work in a school with such a vibrant and positive community of educators. Our families trust us to take care of their children for as long as they're on our campus, and that is a promise we strive to fulfill each day we come to work.

We have been at the Fairmont North Tustin campus for almost 7 years and it has been an incredibly positive experience for all three of our children. We feel our children are academically challenged, participate in the athletic program and thrive in the leadership opportunities at the campus. The environment is family friendly with extremely talented teachers and it is our children's home away from home.

Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
