Remote Learning

Now Enrolling Students in Grades K - 12

Overview

Fairmont’s remote learning program is a 5-day a week, full school day, synchronous program that provides live stream classroom instruction featuring our award-winning teachers and standards-based curriculum.

Technology

Fairmont delivers its remote program through a live streamed classroom. Our educators have created an immersive classroom experience through the use of technology including a Swivl device, which enables a camera to track the teacher as he or she moves around the classroom. Big screen monitors in classrooms allow teachers to view their remote students, and enhanced software such as Nearpod and Gimkit keep remote students engaged in lively lessons and classroom activities.

Teachers

The excellence of our faculty sets Fairmont’s remote program apart. Fairmont teachers have risen to the challenge of educating students in a distance learning format. They excel at using technology resources to find ways to connect with students, whether in class or learning remotely. Fairmont teachers participate in extensive training and classroom preparation including ways to address students’ social-emotional needs during this challenging time.

Curriculum

Fairmont’s remote program uses the same rigorous, standards-based curriculum that empowered student success prior to the pandemic. There is no “watering down” of the curriculum in our remote version. In fact, we have found that our students did not experience the learning loss associated with a switch to a remote platform, referred to as the Covid Slide. Fairmont students continue to perform well above state and national standards. Remote students benefit from core academic subjects, as well as weekly instruction in Music, Art, Drama, PE, Language, and Computers.

What parents are saying about Fairmont’s program:

“When the environment shifted and the nation went into an unprecedented change because of Covid-19, Fairmont didn’t skip a heartbeat, didn’t give up on the children, but rather adapted and continued to lead the students forward. This is remarkable. Your teachers were consistent to lead and be present despite the chaos and uncertainty, and were the encouraging constant in their lives every day.”

“Just wanted to…reiterate our satisfaction with how the teaching crew is doing with our kids’ classes via the online model that you’re using. They’re keeping our kids engaged and focused similarly enough to how our kids would be in a live class setting.”

“Distance learning has been challenging for all of us but my daughter’s teacher has been so supportive. Her lesson plans are very thoughtful and it is obvious that she carefully considers each student’s learning level when creating her daily grids. She is always available and ready to help when my daughter gets stuck on a lesson and she is able to quickly build the confidence she needs to persevere through a new or challenging lesson.”
