As the principal, I am excited to introduce you to The Fay School and the distinctive educational experience it has to offer. A child at The Fay School embarks on a unique educational journey that fosters academic excellence, emotional intelligence and personal growth. This exceptional program is designed to stimulate young minds, develop self confidence and cultivate respect for others. Children develop a sense of belonging that helps them master the social and emotional skills necessary for their future encounters with the outside world.
Fay teachers are dedicated educators who are masters of their content and know their students well. They provide a warm environment where they can inspire young minds by challenging and encouraging their students to reach their full potential. They believe that the best learning emerges from supportive relationships so they look for teachable moments and capitalize on opportunities to make learning meaningful.
At the Fay School, the emphasis is not on the memorization of facts but on the assimilation of knowledge and teaching for understanding. The curriculum in Early Childhood through 5th grade is sequentially organized and centers on the student’s understanding and development of the core subjects of language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. The academic program is rooted in best practices where collaboration, problem solving, creativity, quantitative reasoning, literacy skills, oral and written communication, and the scientific process are all key elements and pillars of day-to-day instruction. In addition to these best practices our Emotional Intelligence Program is a common thread throughout all subject areas and serves to not only promote positive self-image within our students but engages them in the work of living within a community. Students are also given opportunities to perform in musicals, create art projects, learn Spanish, and participate in the outdoor education program.
I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our school and more importantly to visit our campus to experience the true life of The Fay School and this extraordinary learning environment, an environment committed to excellence.
