Attending Fairfield Central is by far one of the best experiences of my life. The teachers, faculty, staff, and district officials really see the value in developing close relationships with the students. Fairfield Central is filled with people who put you and your academic achievement first. I would not want to attend school anywhere else.

I have been attending Fairfield Central High School since the 9th grade and it has been the best high school experience ever. The teachers are very involve with everything at the school and the safety here is amazing. Last of them all we have the best principal ever. She is nice, beautiful, very smart and funny and serious when she needs to be. Also she makes sure all her students have the same benefit and are safe everyday they come to school.
Fairfield Central leaves you with a great overall experience with the teachers, school size, after school programs, and sports along with a lot of friendly peers, friends and family to communicate with. The school gives you a great chance to graduate with your associates degree before entering college with the stem program which is amazing along with the new and improved Fairfield Central Career and Technology Center offering students a chance to get hands on learning about cooking, engineering, computer designing, the list goes on which is a great deal for Fairfield county. I will miss this school when I leave because there is so much they can offer including the excellent staff and guidance counselors that make sure each and every student is on track before time for graduation.
