About Our School

Fairview Elementary is located approximately 10 miles north of Pulaski along State Highway 32. Fairview provides educational opportunities for over 130 students in 4K through fifth grade. The children who attend our school reside in Krakow and the surrounding townships of Angelica, Chase, Morgan, and Green Valley.

Fairview has a true small family feel as the school prides itself in having seven classrooms including 4K. Teachers know the students and students know the teachers by name. This produces an environment that everyone feels welcome in. It is a school where the principal even answers the telephone.

Fairview Fact Sheet

School History

Fairview was built in 1962 during a period of growth in the area. In fact, the school continued to grow at such a rapid pace that an addition was built in 1968 to house all of the school’s students. Today, Fairview is home to more than 150 students and gives a positive, close-knit community to grow in.

During the 1990s, the District saw an increase in students. In 1998, the District passed a referendum to build a new high school allowing the development of the Pulaski Community Middle School. Because of this, all of the elementary schools, including Fairview, became a K-5 school.
