I love that I was able to spend all 4 years at the same high school, I know everyone doesn't get that opportunity. It's a small town with a small school making it more personable. My confindence now compared to my confidence my freshmen year has grown tremendously because of many of the teachers I have had over the last four years! I could not be more grateful for this! My hope is everyone can find their own place in high school and enjoy it as much as possible! It is only four years but a huge part of our lives!
Fairfield is a great school with many opportunities. The teachers are very understanding, but also push their students to strive for greatness. Sporting events have become a great thing in the small town. However, I believe the school needs to find a few more values in academics instead of sports. While the student's academic scores and ability continue to have a high rating, work is still needed to help the school grow to its fullest potential.
I have had a great time in high school because of all the new relationships I have made with both my friends and teachers. Every teacher here truly cares about their students and the future they will have. Hard work is required from freshman year all the way to the end of the senior year here at FCHS. I can not wait to see where my life goes from here!
