This school has taught me how to be ready for college and life in general. Coming to this school has made me confirm my choice of major in Aerospace Engineering and that helps me to further my education. But that couldn't have been done without the STEM program that is set in our school. In this STEM-based program, students will learn the practical application of science and math to solve problems. Learning to use software, interacting with regional industry and collaborating with state and local universities, students will research, design and develop creative solutions for exploration and discovery.

At Fairchild Wheeler I was given the opportunity to not only grow as a student but a person, the school itself is extremely clean and the teachers are reasonable with due dates and understanding of students struggles as well as they strive to build deeper relationships with students it truly makes for a great learning atmosphere. While the school is very good there and I have no major complaints after going there for a few years the few things that can be fixed are the long lines and the lack of opportunity for physical exercise, there are no sports teams and physical education is only offered in Junior year. Overall I would rate Fairchild Wheeler a very good experience.
The years in Fairchild have shaped me to the ready and prepared college students I am today. The school could do a better job at recruiting students since the student body is getting academically weaker each year. The school has a lot of advanced supplies and resources, but the students themselves have to ask and explore because many teachers are busy with the other ones.
