Academics and School Curriculum

Dear Parents,

Each morning at carpool, students are greeted by the smiling faces of Fay teachers and staff on our verdant campus.  The Fay Family is a warm and caring community in which children thrive academically and emotionally.  We honor children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn with our robust curriculum. This is complemented by our signature programs for Leadership Development, Emotional Intelligence, and Outdoor Education in which students apply their skills to become well-rounded scholars and citizens. Fay teachers are learners as well as teachers, ever striving to evolve their practice to meet the needs of today’s students.  They create joyful classroom communities where children rise to high expectations in their studies and social interactions.

Everything we do at Fay is grounded in our understanding of and dedication to the specific needs of young children.  Our wide open spaces provide a myriad of opportunities for children to play and explore the natural world.  Our cheerful classroom environments, vigorous academic programming, and exciting co-curriculars serve children in both the lives they are living today and prepare them to lead and innovate in their future endeavors.   The Fay School is known throughout Houston for these values and for the stellar students we graduate.

It is my honor and pleasure to have the responsibility of serving the Fay community as Principal.  I look forward to working with Fay students, families, and teachers as we create a fantastic school year together.


Melissa Sherman, M.ED.
