I love SJCHS! The teachers are excellent. They help the students with their work as much as possible. The students are respectful (for the most part), academically focused, bright, and nice. The principal is awesome too, he's really cool. The entire staff (especially the office staff) have been really supportive in my transition from Female to Male. There's no discrimination at SJCHS; SJCHS was the best decision I've made in my life, it gave me a fresh start and I've made many amazing friends.

New Mexico in general statistically has some of the worst schools, let alone high schools, so it's not a surprise when you see a 2-star rating. However, I am lucky enough to attend the number 1 school in the state (not to brag, just to point out), so my experience with other schools in Farmington ranges from little to none. But with my little experience, and from knowing how students from Farmington are prepared for the real world and college, or lack thereof, I can safely say that the education and college readiness is barely up to par. To compensate though, this region seems to be filled with natural-born athletes and leaders.
The teachers at Farmington High School are excellent and truly wish to see you succeed in whatever your endeavors be after graduation. I chose higher education and the counselors have worked hard to ensure I choose the right college and take the steps to attend the college. Students are notified of scholarships throughout their junior and senior years to help with the financial parts of attending higher education. School pride is emphasized and the sports teams effectively portray this pride. There are numerous clubs that are available to the students and a brand new campus was just built, so the facilities themselves are superb.
