Fairview Expands Student Enrollment

A local school is preparing to grow one of its signature programs, even as state education spending is flatlined.

A local school is preparing to grow one of its signature programs, even as state education spending is flatlined. Currently, the artful learning program at Fairview Elementary School in Bloomington has just less than 300 students. It has the capacity for 405 students and the school is gearing up for the increase in enrollment, but budget constraints might cause some growing pains.

Fairview Principal Karen Adams said staff is doing all they can to prepare for the increased population.

“We would like to offer transportation, but unfortunately due to the budget constraints we’re not going to be able to offer transportation.” Adams said the school is centrally located and hopefully that’s convenient for parents.

Fairview has room to accommodate 75 more students from outside its area of the city. The school will also have a collaborative after school program with the Banneker Center.
