I have been in the Farmington School District since the 7th grade and my experience has been overwhelmingly positive. The academics are rigorous, and teachers are caring and always eager to help. The student body atmosphere is welcoming and accepting of students from different backgrounds. My academic experience and experience making friends has been well, however if I had to change something, it would be nice to have some renovations for the old building of Farmington High School. It would also be good for the students to have more vegetarian choices in the cafeteria as a large portion of Farmington High are Indians who are vegetarian.

Examining the student body reveals FHS consistently produces students who attend college, do well on SATs and are competitive sports and academic competitions. However speaking from my experiences, someone who prioritized grades, my time at FHS was 4 long years of misery. The school culture is highly competitive among straight A students and dare I say unhealthy. As a 10th and 11th grader I slept around 4 hours each night - a commonality among A students. I observed many of my peers displaying clear signs of depression and I witnessed several stress induced anxiety attacks before exams and sports competitions. The teachers attempt to be supportive of students however ultimately every year the faculty produces new standards which undermine teachers efforts to support their students. Perhaps if I had been less driven to perform well I would have gained fond memories; instead my only takeaways are 5s, my acceptance into an Ivy League and a high tolerance for misery.
Attending the Farmington High School has been a good experience! the teachers here are very professional and smart. They can definitely help you with whatever question you have. The school also prepare you for college. And the administration and all students are really nice. I never felt any discrimination happening towards any groups major or minor.
