Style Weekly’s Suspensions Outnumber Students at City School takes a look at the 485 suspensions last year at award-winning Fairfield Court Elementary School, a school with only 398 students.

“Do look at their SOLs — they’re right at the top of the city’s. What they’re doing works,” West says. “I am reluctant to criticize [Fairfield Court Principal Dr. Irene] Williams because she’s doing such an exceptional job there.”

Fairfield, which primarily pulls students from two of the city’s economically depressed housing projects, Fairfield and Whitcomb courts, boasted 100 percent pass rates in three testing areas last year. The school’s lowest scores were in science: a 93 percent pass rate.
