Farmington Public School District Reviews

Farmington Public Schools is a district that speaks to their appreciation of diversity, but the practices and policies support institutional racism and implicit bias. The teachers are a representation of Farmington’s values. The black population of students do not represent the teacher population. The hiring practices suggest that black people are not welcome in Farmington. After 12 years of being a student in Farmington, I have not connected with many teachers on a level that made me feel accepted or supported. The few really caring teachers came along very late in my education, but I am grateful that they got me through the toughest years of my life so far. Farmington spends a lot of money on supporting a small population of students they believe are exceptional with academics. They study and push test scores and the poor data, but do not put a great effort into creating a safe learning environment for all students.

The environment in the Farmington Public school district is very friendly and accepting. It is a diverse district and has many ways in which students and parents can get involved in. Students have many options for clubs and sports, however, there could be more clubs that support more student interest like debate club and girl's ice hockey. Furthermore, the academics are fine with many options of classes available to students, though more could be added. The district should watch its teachers more to make sure they are teaching in ways students can understand and are not overwhelming the students.
It some ways and in some schools, this district was great to learn and excell in. Some of the school had really amazing teachers and have working facilities and overall I wish I could go back to and experience again or at experience it once if it was my choice. HOWEVER, some schools had a unstable or constantly changing administration and some had building issues that would make it hard for kids to have functioning bathrooms, lockers, classrooms, computer labs, etc. Not to also mention that teachers were without contract renewals for a few years while I was there, a lot of teachers left or constantly used sick days. I even had one teacher who left for health reasons but we were left without proper instruction for weeks.

Overall, this district could improve greatly, but it was still a decent district to attend to.
