I been attending this high school since August 2017. My experience there is great! The staff are very nice to me. What I like the best was that they gave me the opportunity to graduate a year early. I transferred from another state & they worked with me, so I wouldn't be behind.

Overall, Prep has been very good. The academics and teachers are, for the most part strong, and the bomb squad and sports games are a blast. I have found that the administration can be unreasonable at times, and the S.E.E.D. diversity program could be implemented in a better way. But, I am happy with my decision to go here!
My experience at Fairfield High Preparatory School so far has been pretty good. The school mainly focus on academics and college readiness, Fairfield Offers Many Classes That allow students to earn college credit they also allow students to participate in distant learning class that are available online. The School is also not on training students for the work force if they choose not to go to college offering career Building Classes that off basic Training and even paid Internships.
