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.

I like how this district prioritized students and education. It gets students ready for college. I would like to see the students pushed harder because the capabilities of the youth is far beyond what we expect of them. Although it is difficult due to less than ideal home circumstances. We can only hope to educate the youth and promote the next generations!
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.
