    "At first, I was highly skeptical because in the past this school was known to be "bad." NOT ANYMORE! They REALLY improved! This school has changed it's image and policies and principal - even it's name! Yes, I was skeptical but it really has upgraded into a GREAT school. Very big on "Anti-Bullying" which is great. Their girls basketball coach is supportive and fun. The principal is wonderful (love the way he works). Very proactive staff... I have been greatful for the past two years. Thank you!"

    "This school is a very good, full-curriculum Jr. High. It has outlets for students; such as, music (band), Dance Troop, Cheerleading, and Sports. Then, I heard there's other things. You just have to be in the know, or get your student to bring you the flyers home or check in the office as you wait patiently for someone to get a moment to help you. They are very busy with students and day-to-day activities."

    "J.W. Fair is a great school! Fair has some of the best teachers, and the best advanced math class. 7th Algebra and 8th Geometry are the best in the state. To bad this school have a bad repretation, but its really a great school. Mr.Duran the advance math teacher there is the best! He 'motivates' you to d your homework, work hard, study hard, and get A's! This is one of the best schools. Its a fun school with sports. And I'm pretty sure you're going to get the best 2 years of your life here! - A former student at J.W. Fair Middle School!"
