Armijo high is a just an average school. They have the IB program. I was in this program my freshman year. It was very hard to keep up and most of the teachers made us take notes and watch videos. Also they gave hours of homework every night! After dropping out of this program, I returned to the 10th grade and it was okay. I had a couple nice teachers who really cared. I give this school a 5/10 in academics. The students are mixed, some good, some troublemakers. All that matters is that the student knows where they fit in. The library is a comfortable place to hang out if you like to read. Some areas of the school can get routy during lunch. The provided lunch is terrible. Now the school itself is pretty old with some new additions like the library and office. It often floods when it rains. It's pretty old, but the janitors do a good job of cleaning all they can. Overall, the school isn't the best, but it gets the job done. 3/5 stars!

This up coming school year I would be a Junior, I've been involved with WASC, Soccer, AVID, and English 10 honors. I've experienced the love that the faculties have for their students. Once you enter the school from the cafeteria this is what I experience: The janitor greats you with a smile and says something like this;"Have a good day ladies," If you get breakfast the ladies who serve you always end with a 'have a good day'. If you're involved with your classes and teachers you'd probably experience their love for you, I know I have. Every teacher wants for their students to succeed in life and that is a Fact. So come and join us at Armijo High School!
I'd like to start off by clarifying that this is from the perspective of an IB student at Armijo, which provides a far different experience compared to those who are not in the program. But for students in Armijo's IB Program, the school is pretty great! The school is close to Fairfield's downtown area, which is great to visit after school for coffee, Mexican food, baked goods, etc.... As for the environment in the IB program, it's like one big family. By the time students reach their senior year, they've been together for 4 years, have gon through hell together, and it feels like coming home everytime you enter class. the IB teachers are (almost) all amazing and are great at teaching and connecting with students. I could say so much more but I'm running out of space. But to end, the school might not be great for non-IB students, but for IB kids it's pretty good!
