Fairview Elementary History

Fairview Elementary School opened in August, 1962 with an enrollment of 533 students in grades 1-8. The school was built to fill an existing need for a comprehensive consolidated elementary school in the western part of Williamson County. It united Triangle, New Hope, and Fairview Schools. In 1971, grades 7 and 8 were moved to the high school and in 1972, a Kindergarten program was implemented. Due to continued growth in the area, the 6th grade was transferred to Fairview Middle School in 1982 and the 5th grade in 1988. The “Hawks” mascot was designed in the fall of 1997 and has become the focus of building pride in our school community and facility. In August 2000, Westwood Elementary School was opened due to increased enrollment. In the fall of 2001, the 5th graders returned to the elementary school.
