Fairlands Elementary School is committed to giving all of our students a challenging and supportive school program. Their continuing aim is to prepare students for success with the necessary knowledge and skills they would require, while at the same time fostering imagination, enthusiasm and a lifelong passion for learning.
In the core curricular fields of science, social studies, physical education, and visual and performing arts, the academic curriculum at Fairlands incorporates Common Core State Standards in English, Language Arts and Mathematics as well as California Standards. Highly qualified and credentialed are their exemplary teaching personnel and experts. Moreover, their excellent support staff brings a wealth of expertise to support the Fairlands Superior Education Program.
They believe learning is a journey. Students advance at various paces through their journey. Here at Fairlands, they agree that excellence in education is necessary and vital to the student's life-long success. They also believe in the growth of well-rounded students who, in their adult future, would be welcome assets to their society.
At Fairlands, character education is a high priority. A collaboration between the Pleasanton Unified School District and the City of Pleasanton is the "Community of Character" program. In district schools, the six character qualities stressed are: liability, compassion, self-discipline, fairness, respect, and integrity.
They are extremely proud of the relationships they have with their families and their culture in the Fairlands. When you visit their campus, the dedication of their community to working together to help and strengthen the learning experience of all students is clear. In schools, the workplace and for special services, parents volunteer on a daily basis. In this relationship, their Parent Teacher Organization plays a crucial role, and their school staff are profoundly thankful to all the parents who strive to provide their children with a better learning environment.
