Community Partnership

Student Experiences

Fairview offers a rich and broad selection of the arts. Through community support, we are able to bring local artists to Fairview to teach piano keyboarding, African drumming, guitar, violin, ceramics, 3-D art, drama, choir, and show choir. Beyond the arts, we have a Robotics Team, Running Club, and Student Council. Every month we celebrate Wildcat leaders, students selected by their teachers as role models for their peers.

Fairview engages with and benefits from a rich selection of community partners. We partner with The Crestmont Boys and Girls Club, Girls Inc., and with the Banneker Center for our after-school tutoring, enrichment, and care. We partner with many individual community artists and arts organizations to provide arts instruction, including Cardinal Stage for our drama instruction, and BEAT for our show choir. Catholic Charities provides counseling services during the school day at Fairview. We partner with Lotus Education and Arts Foundation to bring Lotus Blossom musical artists to our school and to provide Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar for all fourth grade students in the MCCSC. We partner with IU Jacob School of Music for violin instruction, with IU Athletics’ athletes to inspire our students by serving as tutors and readers, and with the IU O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs for various outreach, programming, and volunteer assistance. Gold Leaf for Hydroponics partners with students, providing a STEM-rich experience in hydroponic gardening.
