The New Fairfield Public Schools District is fantastic. All of our teachers care about their students and they make sure we’re learning valuable information we can take with us in life! Every teacher makes time in their schedules so students can come for extra help if they need it. They not only teach us the material, they engage the class and make their lessons interesting! Everyone feel included in the New Fairfield School system! There are also so many opportunities for high schoolers here in New Fairfield! Our high school has countless AP and Honors classes if students wish to challenge themselves, electives, educational trips, plays, sports, and clubs! Everyone finds something they’re interested in and because of our close knit community, making friendships is so easy!

When attending New Fairfield High School I felt the same way all high school students feel about their high schools, ew. Now that I have had a chance to evaluate and compare my education and opportunities I realize how lucky I was to attend New Fairfield High School. The lab facilities, the pond out back, the sport teams, the social functions, the lunch menu, the arts programs, all I can say is I really didn't know how much I had access to that a lot of students don't get a chance to experience until college.
Overall it's a safe school, there aren't many fights and students generally feel comfortable in and around the school. The English department is strong as is the science department. The middle school and high school have below-average math teachers and students often feel unprepared in that subject. There are a good amount of elective classes and student athletes are fairly happy.
