4/30/2010parentI am a grandmother that has had 4 children attend Fork Shoals School. It's teaching staff and administration is the absolute best! The children love to go to school. I am a volunteer at the school and enjoy helping the children as well as the teachers. There is so much love for our school throughout the community and Fork Shoals School is now home of the State of South Carolina Teacher of the Year. We take much pride in our school, teachers, staff and most of all our children. I wouldn't want my grand daughter to attend any other school.
4/29/2010parentIt is a school where education goes hand and hand with principles of an IB school. The teachers care for their students. They also allow volunteer involvment and make you feel welcome.
4/29/2010parentIt has such loving staff and faculty that really care about the children not only in education but in their personal life as well.
4/29/2010parentAll 4 of my children have went to this school and the teacher and staff truly care about what is best for each and every child. I am a single mom and they help with getting each child the same even if the parent can not pay for trips or something they find a way to get the kids sponsored so they don't miss out. They also make sure the kids are experiencing the different cultures that some schools don't get to do. My oldest child is in high school and my youngest is in third grade and it won't matter if I move I will find a way to make sure that my child finishes elementry school at fork shoals.
4/29/2010parentWe have been very happy with our daughter's first year at Fork Shoals. They teach not just reading and writing, but also about different cultures, languages, and life skills. Respect for each other is emphasized, as well as positive reinforcement on a school-wide level. Volunteers are an integral part of the school, and parents are encouraged to participate as much as possible.
5/31/2006parentFork Shoals is a wonderful school. It was originally founded in 1877. The school has a very nurturing environment and my son truly enjoys going to school there. My son had been in first grade in Nicholasville, Kentucky. I had never been personally exposed to a school which seemed more like a confinement area than an educational environment. We were so happy when we moved to Simpsonville, SC and our son began attending Fork Shoals. One never realizes how much difference caring teachers can make until having to go to a school that is lousy.
9/9/2004parentThis is one of the most loving and secure schools I have ever seen.All the staff Knew my child by name before the first week was up. They really made it easier to send my child to kindergarden.My sons teacher keeps me informed on how my child is doing at all times and seems very concerned about his wellbeing.
10/6/2003parentMy son is in the 4th Grade at Fork Shoals. Previously he attended 2 other Greenville County Elementary schools. Fork Shoals has done more for him in the last 6 weeks than all his other years combined. I am so grateful my son has had the opportunity to attend this incredible school. The principal is an incredible person who obviously has a true love for children and truly wants each of them to have the best education possible.
6/16/2003 My son just completed Kindergarten at Fork Shoals. He is getting a wonderful education. The entire staff at the school takes an active part in the education of the children. They encourage the children to learn, explore and to question everything. The principal & teachers create such a strong bond between the home & school life that children feel how important their education is, and give them a love for learning. I am very excited to see what the next year brings, and see how implementing the IB program will enhance an already world class education environment.
