    My son just started at this school and I can see that they do get enough funding and parent participation, which in turn shows in their high scores however their ability to integrate special needs children into the mainstream is lacking. This school, as several parents reported, isn't built around helping students that need a bit of extra attention to be able to excel. My son is academically way above the norm for his class however I find him being left to his own devices. He does require some special accommodations which I found to be met with resistance. I was looked at more like the overprotective parent than an informed & educated parent of my son. Great school if your child fits the mold.

    Easily the best school in CUSD. Known for excellence in academics, sports and extracurricular activities. Very responsive teachers, principal and administration.

    Too bad they don't put any effort into bringing good teachers to special ed like they do with other teachers at this school. Was basically just bringing my child to daycare since there was no teaching going on, and we were bullied by special ed department for years before we pulled out. Principal even told us we couldn't park in areas that the law says we can with handicap placard, and some of the regular ed teachers said they didn't want my daughter in kindergarten graduation department because other kids would be "confused" by her. Mostly just a very sad situation with Clovis Unified's entire special ed program.

    Fugman elementary has a great learning environment and we find that the teachers are excellent making sure that all children are learning and no one is left behind. Besides providing the best level of support for some students that need help and attention.

    The quality and compassion displayed on a daily basis for the sake of the Students speaks volumes. The Teachers actually care and take that extra time that is sometime needed which helps in such a big impact. Thankyou Fugman Staff
