Farmington School District Reviews

I've been going to Farmington schools since I was in 2nd grade and it is the best school district in Northwest Arkansas. The relatively smaller size of the school makes the experience with teachers much more personal. On top of that all of the teachers care about the students, for most of my high school career I even spent 95% of my time outside of class in school (lunchtime, morning before class, etc.) with my favorite teacher in her classroom. The only problem I have with Farmington Public Schools is, as an artist, there is very low interest in the arts at Farmington. Sports reigns as king, but with recent developments like a new building just opening this year, and a brand new performing arts center just implemented in the last couple of years that is looking to change. Overall my experience at Farmington School District is wonderful and I would recommend to any parent looking for a good school for their child.

I have been a student at Farmington since the last half of my first grade year. I have met and had several wonderful teachers but have had as many who were not great and in my opinion should not be in the role they were in. Like any small school you have the elite crowd that runs the school whether or not the administrative staff would like to admit it. It is no different at Farmington.
I feel more diverse topics should be an option for the students to choose from especially in foreign languages (only Spanish) and fine arts. We do have drama, choir and band but do not have dance or other cultural arts. And there should be more clubs and activities that all of the students should be able to partake in and not just your typical sports (football, basketball, softball).
I will say they are working to make the school more vital, academically and technically with the new high school being built. Unfortunately this will happen after I graduate.
I am a 2016 graduate of Farmington High. I have lived in Farmington all my life, so I know a lot about the schools. I am very displeased with it all. I would not suggest to anyone to take their child there due to the lack of effort to prepare students for college. There is really nothing positive to say about this school district. This district does not take education seriously. All they do is punish kids for not doing things the correct way when the teachers cannot even do it the right way in the first place. I had countless teachers that would never make my class do anything, but the day the principal would come and observe it the class would then turn into a college leveled high school course. There was little school involvement from anyone. Everyone knew that no one, not even the principal, wanted to be at the school. All in all, there is a lot that needs to be changed.
