Fairfield Area High School Reviews
Most of the teachers at Fairfield Area High School that I've had or met were great to work with and have helped me tremendously. Their teaching styles are usually engaging and involve open discussion with the students. All of the teachers I've had were highly knowledgeable about the topic they were teaching, especially the math, science, and literature teachers. The teachers are able to help students with questions and problems in a way that encouraged learning, rather than just answering a question. The teachers generally take an interest in the students, and are friendly and available for academic assistance. They communicate well with students, and usually answer emails about school questions promptly and helpfully or make time to help. Across the board, teachers grade fairly consistently within their own classes; for example, one teacher might grade things more harshly in all the classes that they teach than another teacher might grade in all their classes. Overall, I like the teachers at Fairfield Area High School, and some of them I'm sad to no longer have classes with.
I think my whole high school experience was great. I loved all of my teachers and the custodian/cafeteria staff. I would love to see the school work on bullying just a little bit more. Although there is not a lot of bullying, i think we can always improve to make our school feel even safer.
I have been a student at Fairfield since Kindergarden and have lived in the area my whole life. I am going to be a junior this fall. Fairfield is a very small school as my graduating class of 2019 has around 98 students. The school is mainly white students with 5 black students. The office staff are amazing and the principal is very nice and you often see him coming to support the school in all of its involvements including football games.
