I like the energy to succeed while having fun. We always do things fun and educational make people wanna learn. If I had the choice to do all over again I would. I played sports and I realized that the coaches make sure we are on top of our education reminding us that we are not just athletes but we are student athletes. For the past few years our teachers have been retiring and they shut the department down. Art,cosmetology, and others have been shut down. Thankfully our teachers have made plans to have clubs.

What i like about Fairfield is that its so many choices and opportunities to choose from when it comes to education and college wise. From the principal all the way down to the teachers they will help you get to where you need to be in life. What i would like to see change is more security around the school. Also the teacher's attitude they should have the attitude to ready to teach and help the students that need all the help they can get. Also fix up the only park fairfield has it should be the most outstanding park their is out in the city of Faifield, AL.
I had an awesome time a this school. They taught me a lot before heading to college. I do well in my math classes because I had awesome teachers and guidance. They helped me decide to continue my education when I became a teen mom by only being 16 years old. The guidance counselor kept pushing college applications on every student since my junior year. The ACT was a bug thing to administration. College tours and colleges visiting the school was a big help. They informed us about a lot of things on campus and made sure we knew exactly what was needed to be done to get accepted. As of now my school had people in law school, grad school, and lawyers already established.
