I loved how diverse Fairfield High was. I didn't feel out of place when it came to seeing how culturally diverse the school was. I also liked how involved teachers where when in came to teaching and when it came to us students. I would change the availability of counselors and access to mental health resources. Teenagers can go through so much in the 4 years they have in high school and they need all the support they need. Having someone to talk to can actually help more than one would realize. I think counselors that aren't having to cover 40 plus students and more on campus therapists(?) could help students that need it to thrive in school, knowing that there are people that care about them. There can even be mental health rooms made and available to those that need it when things get too much at school. I know that this isn't necessarily the school's fault and is probably more of a funding problem.

My overall experience at Fairfield High School so far has been eventful, yet insufficient. I feel like there could be more opportunities that could be given at this school, like more language classes, more clubs, better teachers, better leadership, and more. Despite all of this, I have had a better high school experience than others at this school. Some examples are football games, band, fun AP classes, interesting electives, and more.
My experience at Fairfield High School was overall pretty decent. I had a mix of great teachers and so-so teachers, which is expected of a high school. I was really appreciative of all the opportunities this school gave me to get out of my comfort zone and learn many new things. I noticed there were quite a few cliques that did make it hard to make friends, but I also noticed many extremely nice people who made my experience there so much better.
