Both of my children attended Root Elementary from K through 5, and I have to say, it's one of the very best elementary schools in Fayetteville.
Root Elementary is on the east side of town, which contains some newer subdivisions, but also some older homes too, giving it a nice diversity of population. The teachers and staff have been there for a very long time and have a great reputation. Root has earned the title of "Blue Ribbon School" and consistently it's students perform well in the future.
