Armijo High School Reviews

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!

Armijo High School is a generally safe place to be yourself, as well as try new things. Throughout my four years here, I haven't encountered many bullies. All the drama in high school can be avoided as long as you mind your own business, don't gossip, and avoid the bad crowd. By bad crowd, I mean those that would throw you off track for graduation. Most teachers are very kind here; they want to help us succeed in school and succeed in life. The courses are good; you could choose to go into IB and take harder and fast-paced classes. Or, you could take regular classes. Or, you could go into the Multimedia Academy or Avid! There are many choices, and also many clubs to join, like the Anime Club, Art Club, Helping Hands, Latino Club, and many more! At Armijo, there will always be something for someone here.
Armijo High School is an interesting school, in which there are examples of individuals who are well educated due to the many education-oriented programs located there (such as the International Baccalaureate Program). These students are given a fair amount of resources to work on their skills needed in college and throughout life. This, combined with the well-balanced diversity of cultures on campus, has left me satisfied with my experience as an Armijo alumni.

With that being said, there are some downsides to the campus. A fair amount of the facilities are under-maintained or are in disrepair (in contrast to the new administration office and the new library), most notably the bathrooms which are always unsanitary due to their age, lack of maintenance, and due to the actions of some students.
