Fairfield has a well-established and vibrant community that allows for every teacher and student to feel welcomed and satisfaction of having a voice. Here, teachers provide the necessary assistance for every student to achieve success, whether if it's staying after school one-on-one or learning how each student comprehends information. Parents are always informed of their child's status in school. The best part is the fundamental success rate of each school. Two years ago, the governor attended Fairfield Warde to congratulate them on their achievement of highest graduation rate in the entire state. Fairfield is doing something right, and I couldn't be happier.
I liked the overall sense of community in the district. It created a sense of wholeness at school. I have friends who attend school there and have met many amazing people. Some things that need to change is preparing the seniors for college. More after school programs educating the students would help!
