We at Fairview believe that each child is a unique personality who is to be respected, is capable of learning, can be trusted, and can be taught to assume responsibility. We further believe that schools exist for the preservation and perpetuation of democracy by providing the opportunity for its pupils to think, achieve, create and attain basic skills according to the individual ability in the areas of knowledge. It is our responsibility to foster a desire for learning, foster independence, and develop every pupil physically, morally, mentally and spiritually.
