At Fairfield Community High School, I had a very good experience. The staff is very friendly and will stop at nothing to try and help and student succeed. we just put a brand new sports complex in using the money from the State Farm grant got by our Ag teacher, Curt Robbins. The environment is very safe and we have a patrol officer in the school during visiting hours.

Fairfield Community High School was a great place to learn. Sure it had its down sides but overall it was a great experience. I made many good friends and had some great teachers that were always willing to help out with whatever I needed help with. The sports were great to be a part of and the support from the community is wild. Every Friday night half the town is down at the train yard to watch the boys beat whoever we may face on the football field.
Fairfield Community High School is a great school to attend. The teachers are very understanding and fun. Another aspect that makes FCHS what it is today is the sports. All the sports teams are very good.
