I have attended Farmington Central High School for four years. I have been involved in theatre (had fun), band , choir, cross country, science Olympiad, scholastic bowl, marching band and the math team. I really enjoyed the school and the kids in general are very supportive of each other. I have made hundreds of friends and will them dearly when I graduate.

Farmington is overall a great school. I would not have wanted to attend any other school around central Illinois. The teachers could improve themselves. I would much rather see coaches who like what they do and push their teams to do better rather than putting them down. In the future, I hope to see more good things rather than complaints about the students here. I think everyone is nice and has a sense of a small community, especially when something tragic happens. I believe I could have been better prepared for college. There are some things that I learned the hard way but I could've been told if someone was trying to help.
At Farmington High School I have made close friends that I hope will stay strong and I have learned a lot from many of my teachers. I have learned to look outside of the box, to search deep within myself and discover my message, how to create positive habits, and so much more. It is not all about finding the area of a circle or typing a paper in MLA format. A few teachers there have shown me that there is more to life and it is mine for the taking. I wish that all of the teachers were like that. Sadly, you will always have people who favor others over some, and there will always be the sports that get more attention. I would like to see the student body support all activities at Farmington Central High no matter how small they are. We are a community and I wish they would start acting more like that humble community when it comes to all areas of extracurricular.
