Dear Parents and/or Guardians and Students,


I bring this message to you with much excitement and anticipation for the start of the 2014-2015 school year! We value your support and feedback as Betty H. Fairfax continues our diligent pursuit of excellence as we work to improve all school-wide programs, focus on positive results, embrace Arizona College and Career Readiness standards, and strengthen our wall to wall International Baccalaureate (IB) pathways initiative.

Our focus is to provide the highest academic skill development, global awareness, and positive school connectedness, in a holistic educational experience, for all students. In addition, it is critical to remember that an IB education will ultimately strengthen student literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking skills which are essential components to our students’ performing at a higher level on state, national, and global assessments and college entrance exams.

We are in the process of our school-wide continuous school improvement with AdvancED accreditation which is the recognition that is granted to institutions that continually do the following:

-Aspire to meet a set of rigorous academic standards

-Utilize feedback from all stakeholders and,

-Make changes to instruction and learning environments based on student performance.

In an effort to gain feedback from all our community stakeholders, we need your help with completing the enclosed Advanced ED Parent Survey/Feedback Form. Please complete this form and return it to our International Baccalaureate (IB) Office, Room 1100, in care of Sandra Stringer or your child may return the survey to their Advisory teacher, by Wednesday, 9/14/14. Your feedback and support is integral to our continual development and school improvement.  

Thank you for your support and feedback!


Dr. Schavon T. Waggoner
