“Our son James is in his fifth year at Fairmont Private School, our daughter Sophie in her third year. It has been a great experience for both – academically and socially. They really enjoy working with their teachers, who are attentive, caring, always available to help and passionate about their work.The small class sizes have been great for the education of our kids. In extraordinary times like these, Fairmont Private School has gone above and beyond our expectations.”
