    "My children love Farine. The dual language program has been outstanding for my girls. My oldest is now in fifth grade and speaks fluent Spanish and has had no difficulty in other subjects. The administration has been very accomidating with my child's medical condition which causes her to miss days regularly for treatments."

    "This school has been very accommodating and the district is improving year after year. A great testament as to why people should put their faith in public schools, especially in Irving and Farine. The teachers are attentive to each student, esp Ms Ortega and Mrs Bell (KG). My son is doing well and thriving in this environment and in the dual language program. Send your kids here and be involved! Makes all the difference in the world!"

    "I have had children at Farine for 4 years. Both of my sons are in the dual language program. In fact, we moved to Irving because of this opportunity. The administration & staff at Farine have been nothing short of amazing. They are focused on teaching our kids to read, write & think. I was especially impressed when I asked my then 4th grader if he knew when the TAKS test was. He did not, even though it was only 2 weeks away. This told me that they were more focused on teaching my kid than on test scores/strategies, etc. I have always felt welcome and felt like the administration and staff were ready to work together, with me, to address any issues that have come up with my kids. I cannot recommend Farine highly enough. As I've read the reviews on this site, what struck me is how they have improved over the years. This is proof that the administration is working to make things better all the time. Do not hesitate to send your kids here. You won't regret it."

    "I have two daughters, both enrolled in the dual language program. Though there have been struggles, I have found that the administration and teachers have always been willing to work together to find a solution to any problems, with my children's best interest at heart. I would encourage any new parent to start their child in the dual language, it is really providing them with a great gift!!"

    "My daughter has attended Farine since 3rd grade. She has always had wonderful teachers until she reached 5th grade. I am so glad this will be her last year there!"
