About Us

Until the summer of 1969, Fair Oaks, located in the Varina District, was one of several African-American schools in the school division. When “freedom of choice” failed to produce integration, dual African-American and white school zones were abolished in favor of a single, non-racial zone plan for the system. Fair Oaks was closed for the 1969-1970 school year for rezoning. It was reopened in the fall of 1970 as an integrated elementary school.
