Fabyan Elementary School

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Geneva's newest school opened in August 2009, with anticipation and enthusiasm, Principal Darcy Thompson said in her letter to parents and the community.</p>
<p>The school has 353 students and hosts districtwide and Mid Valley special education classes that bring the total number of students to about 380.</p> <p>Fabyan Elementary is a modern facility, with spacious classrooms, art, music, cafeteria/stage, gymnasium and computer labs. The building is shaped like an "E,"  with three wings that branch from the main corridor. Kindergarten, first and second grades each have a wing on the first floor, and third through fifth grades each have a wing on the second floor.</p> <p>Students from Western Avenue Mill Creek and Heartland Elementary School came together to form Fabyan in 2009-10. An active PTO and staff made the first year of the school a special experience.</p> <p>"We have been refered to as the fun school," Thompson said. "I guess the word is out. At any elementary school, there's a sense of welcoming. And the climate I want to establish and we have established is one of caring, nurturing and genuineness—that we are fun. I think when students feel comfortable and cared for, they feel a chance to be risk-takers and problem-solvers."</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>
