Fairmont Historic Anaheim Campus

A Home Away From Home

As the first of all of the Fairmont campuses, we are proud of the part the Historic Anaheim Campus has played in Fairmont’s history. That history is a tradition of commitment to excellence in all areas of a child’s educational life. Historic Anaheim Campus is home to a 22-year first place winning streak in the Orange County Academic Pentathlon. Each year, our students perform exceptionally well on standardized tests and win many prestigious awards. While academics are the core of our program, music, art, and sports flourish here as well.

Our dedicated teachers share a kind, enthusiastic spirit as they tend to the business of educating and caring for their students. Their belief in the promise of these students has created an atmosphere filled with optimism and high expectations.

The Historic Anaheim Campus is truly a "home away from home" for our students and for all of us who share in their educational life. From the grace and beauty of our landmark 100 year-old Moreton Bay Fig tree to the 21st century skills our students learn and practice every day, Fairmont’s Historic Anaheim Campus has so much to offer the young leaders of tomorrow.

Fairmont Historic Anaheim Campus

The Fairmont Historic Anaheim Campus has a rich history of academic and athletic achievements dating back to the school's founding in 1953. We are proud that our students learn and play on the same picturesque grounds enjoyed by students for more than sixty years. Although technology has greatly changed, the close-knit sense of community between teachers and students remains solid and relevant. Our educators hold high expectations for themselves and their students. The success stemming from this accountability is remarkable.

Academically, our students continue to achieve some of the highest standardized test scores in Orange County. Our music, art, science, and sports programs receive recognition with many students earning awards at science fairs, sports tournaments, art shows, and music/drama performances. The open communication with parents supports our commitment to educational excellence for every child.

After School Programs

Beginning LEGO Robotics

The Lego Education WeDo Program introduces young students to robotics. Students will be able to build LEGO models featuring working motors and sensors, program their models, and explore their ability to problem solve. The goal is to develop their real-world STEM skills, focus on beginning physics, engineering concepts, software program logic, and detailed building plans while having fun!

Cheerleading

Calling all spirited Panthers! Students will learn the fundamentals of cheerleading including voice, motions, routines, and jumps. They will also experience what it means to have school spirit and to lead a crowd in cheering for our Panther teams. Sign-up fee will include the cost of a uniform (cheer skirt and top).

Master of Chess

Want to become the Grand Master of Chess? The Fairmont chess class is the place to start. Classes are for anyone from beginner to advanced. Students will learn the basic concepts of captures, check, checkmate, and the stalemate. The class will cover both chess theory and strategy.

Intermediate Robotics

LEGO Mindstorm Robotics enables students to build, program, and test their solutions based on real-world robotic technology. Focusing on STEM skills, students will utilize a software program with a powerful core computing unit to control motors and sensors, collect data, and process sensor feedback. Students must brainstorm, problem solve, and conduct trial –and-error experiments to complete exciting dynamic engineering challenges.

Super Soccer Stars

Super Soccer Stars teaches soccer skills in a fun, non-competitive, and educational environment. Through our age-specific curriculum, we use soccer to nurture, build self-confidence, and develop teamwork. Low child-to-coach ratios and positive reinforcement ensure that each child improves at his or her pace while having a blast!

Tap Dance

Put on your tapping shoes and get ready to make some more noise! Mrs. Gilliland will be teaching our tap class for our JK-K grade students. Students will learn how to work together as a team and will learn basic tap skills, technique, and vocabulary. The students will learn a dance and will put on a short performance at the end of the session. Tap shoes will not be provided and need to be purchased.

Drawing, Painting, & Creating Art

This class is designed to encourage students to draw, paint, and create artwork that interests them. Students can use their own “style,” or they can learn from the Masters. Impressionism, Realism, Expressionism, and even cartooning are options. Students will have their choice of media: pencil, crayon, paint, soft pastel, oil pastel, or mixed media. Students will be encouraged to enter local, state, and national contests.

Marine Biology

Explore the diversity of ocean life from organisms in hot deep-sea vents to the riches of tropical fish to the astonishing varieties of arctic marine life. Students will get to dissect a shark, a squid, a lamprey eel, & starfish. They will also be able to write with squid ink, learn about the largest environment on the planet, and learn about basic ocean concepts!

Digital Photography

This course will help students become well rounded in the fundamentals of photography. Emphasis will be placed on how cameras work and students will practice taking their camera off the auto setting and learning how to use the manual setting. Instruction will be given over the rule of thirds and how to frame a shot. Students will go over the basics of lighting and the use of ISO and aperture. Once completing this course, your child will not only understand the basics of photography, but also how to experiment and have fun with this art form.

Discovery Science

Get ready to construct the new Mega EG bot! Students will get to discover the science of Dihydrogen Oxide (water). What likes water, and what doesn’t? They’ll love the all new splash day, where they will have fun with wet n’ wild water games. (They won’t get too wet) Up next, they will be introduced to the amazing H2O Hydro-Rocket, a rocket that is built for high velocity excursions. Get ready to rock, with the new “Rock Dock.” Students will learn the science of sound as we build a real music player! Built with speakers, a circuit board, and more components, they will be ready to plug in their electronic device and listen to their favorite music, anywhere!
