• School Choice

    School Choice is now open, from January 5 until March 1. For more information about our IB Prep magnet program, and application instructions, please visit our IB Prep “Prospective Students” page. Take a few minutes to watch our informational video, explore our website, and if you have any questions at all—about the IB Prep program, or the application process—please contact our program coordinator, Mr. Lee Cameron, at, or 488-6880.

    Fairview’s IB Prep program is Leon County’s longest running middle school magnet program, and we have had a long track record of success. Our students excel in all areas, and pursue a wide-range of exciting interests and extracurricular activities. All year long, our students are active—and successful!—in everything from Math Competitions (our teams thrive year in, and year out), to Science Olympiad (we are one of the only area schools to annually offer Science Olympiad, and compete in the state competition held in Orlando), to athletics (our students participate in all of the middle school sports offered by the county) and the arts (our students participate in chorus, musical theater, orchestra, and band—including an amazing and consistently “Superior”-rated jazz band).

    We are constantly evolving and expanding our horizons, offering new courses, and new opportunities. For the past two years, we have been developing a coding/programming course, and we are the only middle school currently offering this authentic level of coding. Students are involved in authentic lessons, and are building games from the ground up. This is just one example of how we are constantly seeking to change with the times, meet the interests of students, and explore new challenges.

    The application and “recruitment” process looks quite different this year, since we are not able to offer our normal open houses and shadowing opportunities; however, please visit our IB Prep page to learn about “virtual” shadowing and open house oppurtunities.

    We hope that you take the time to look into our program, and we are here to answer your questions and help you get a clear picture of what our IB Prep program looks like!
