Proud to be a Fairway Eagle!

Proud to be a Fairway Eagle!

A true neighborhood school, Fairway Elementary is nestled in a residential community on a former golf course in West St. Louis County, MO. Fairway is the newest of nineteen elementary schools in the Rockwood School District. We are the home of the Eagles, and our entire school community embraces the district's mission of doing whatever it takes to ensure all students realize their potential. However, at Fairway Elementary, that's more than just our mission statement. Doing whatever it takes for our Eagles to be successful is at the heart of our work.

We recognize that these are exciting and challenging times for public schools. Besides a rigorous and differentiated academic program, our Fairway community understands the importance of our students' social and emotional well-being. We believe that preparing our children for the future requires far more than focusing on just academic achievement. We know we must teach, model, and practice life skills that will inspire our students to be happy, thriving, and caring citizens. We work hard to nurture our students' passions and inspire them to serve others.

What ultimately makes Fairway so successful is our sense of family. Our Eagles know that every adult in their school loves and cares for them deeply. They understand that our school is their "home away from home" and we take care of each other just as families do. It is this powerful love and our caring relationships that make Fairway Elementary such a special and successful school.
