My experience at Fairfield High Preparatory School had been great, maybe because I have lived in the city my whole life. The school is filled with with amazing individuals who really just want to make the best out of there life, everyone at our school at least has a dream to be something in life. Something I would change in my school would be the image we have a horrible reputation with violence and academics, and that is not the only thing we have to offer.

Since I was a little girl I have attended all Fairfield city schools, and I must say it has helped shape me into the woman I am today. When certain people hear about Fairfield they automatically assume that it is a horrible community or school district, but that’s not the case. Many great leaders, and people have Came out of this city. 87% Of my fellow classmates have went to college upon graduating, and we’re all doing pretty well we don’t let the distractions or negative comments Stop us from achieving our aspirations in life. The city of Fairfield has great teachers and administrators, and great college prep programs if It wasn’t For the C.A.M.P. (College admissions made possible) program that Fairfield Had set up I wouldn’t have done as well On The ACT as I did and for that I am profoundly grateful.
Fairfield high school is a title 1 school. In a title 1 school you would think that there are no education opportunities. That is absolutely wrong. Fairfield high school offers a early graduation program and the school also has connections. Furthermore, with these connections that Fairfield its self doesn't have, gives us students the opportunity to do things we never dreamed of doing.
Fairfield high is a low income and prodimately African American school. Fairfields great and loving teachers always remind us that even though we are a minorty and looked down upon, we can beat the statistics and be something we as students could never see ourselves. Fairfield high school also has a program that is called JAG. Fairfield's JAG program is the longest program to stay at Fairfield then any other state. My experience with JAG has been tremendous. It teaches you how too do interviews and the do's and dont's of the professional world. My experience has been great.
